Samantha Stosur is staying in the moment as she returns to her natural environment and entertains another deep French Open run.

The 35-year-old generally struggles in Australian conditions but she relishes the red dirt of Paris, progressing to the third round or beyond in her last 10 visits to Roland Garros.

A freak hand injury derailed a promising 2017 campaign in the fourth round while she boasts three semi-finals and one final appearance to go with a US Open title in 2011.

It's no wonder Australia's former world No.4 always returns with a spring in her step.

"No matter what's been happening I can come here and feel pretty good about things," she said.

"Obviously I love playing here, love the courts, have typically played pretty well and I'm trying to do it again."

Still super fit, Stosur won't pretend she can play forever but insists there are no retirement plans in place.

"I don't want to go into this Roland Garros thinking it's my last one," she said.

"I don't want that sort of pressure on myself, or to have thoughts of 'what if this is it?'.

"Obviously I know there's not too many more ahead of me but right now, still, every day I'm trying to get better."

The current world No.89 will play last on the incredible new Simonne Mathieu arena - part greenhouse, part tennis court - against Czech Barbora Strycova today.
