Rafael Nadal  is due to update the state of his slow hip injury recovery and likely reveal any plans for Roland Garros at a Thursday media conference at his tennis academy.

The Mallorca date is expected to clear up the current situation of the 14-time French Open winner who turns 37 in June.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion has not played since mid-January at the Australian Open.

Twitter speculation is running wild with one Spanish outfit already posting that he will skip Paris.

If he is forced to skip the clay court major, the former No. 1 is set to drop from the Top 100.
