The defending champion saw off compatriot Ferrero in last year's final and he has a strong record in Paris on a surface that suits his rear-court game.



But Costa has struggled for form on clay this year, suffering a series of shock defeats, notably an embarrassing loss to 16-year-old compatriot Rafael Nadal in Monte Carlo.



The 27-year-old Costa has reached the quarter-finals at Roland Garros three times and that may be the best he can hope for as he defends his only grand slam crown.
