ROME (AP) Rafael Nadal still has to shed some rustiness following a seven-month break from tennis as he prepares to chase a record-extending 13th French Open title.

Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, still appears to have some anger issues two weeks after getting kicked out of the U.S. Open for unintentionally hitting a line judge in the throat with a ball in a fit of anger.

Nadal's first tournament back ended with a 6-2, 7-5 loss to Diego Schwartzman in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open on Saturday. That was after Djokovic earned a verbal warning for smashing his racket on the red clay midway through a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 win over German qualifier Dominik Koepfer.
