Johannesburg - South Africa's No 1 Kevin Anderson is confident that he will turn out for the French Open starting on Sunday.

The world No 35 dropped one position in the latest ATP tennis rankings after withdrawing injured last week during his first-round match against Sam Querrey at the ATP Masters event in Rome.

Anderson twisted an ankle during the first set tiebreaker and retired in the second set.

"The strain was pretty bad, but I have done a lot of extensive rehabilitation," Anderson said on Monday.

"I spent the entire week in Rome working with the ATP physios and I am making great progress.

"I am feeling very confident of being ready for the French Open." Anderson said the injury would be monitored during the week.

The big-serving SA Open champion qualifies automatically for the main draw of the French Open at Roland Garros.
