French Open Video: Comeback Kids

Andrea Petkovic, Heather Watson, Tamira Paszek. They've all reannounced themselves at Roland Garros - here they are in their own words about their comebacks.

PARIS, France - Three of the feel good stories of the French Open are a trio of comeback kids, all of whom have overcome difficult injury or illness lay-offs and are now making inroads back to the top.

Andrea Petkovic has already been building her ranking back up for a year now after knee, back and ankle injuries completely threw her off during the 2012 and 2013 seasons - she was on the fast track to the top, after all, breaking into the Top 10 players in the world during the 2011 season.

Meanwhile, former British and Austrian No.1s Heather Watson and Tamira Paszek also had memorable stays in Paris, coming through the qualifying and reaching the second round, and only falling to Top 10 players - all after almost falling off the map due to illness and injury during 2013.
