London: Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has entered the draw for next month's French Open four months after suffering a serious hand injury, she said on Monday.

The 27-year-old was stabbed by a knife-wielding intruder in her home in the Czech Republic in December.

"My name will appear on the entry list for Roland Garros because I had made good progress in my recovery process and I want to give myself every last opportunity to be able to compete at one of my favorite events," Kvitova said on Instagram.

"This unfortunately does not mean necessarily that I will be ready to play in Paris, but that I'm doing everything possible to give myself the chance and keep a positive mindset. There remains a long road ahead."

The hard-hitting left-hander rose to No. 2 in the world rankings in 2011 when she won the first of her two Wimbledon singles titles. She is now ranked 14th.

The French Open starts on May 22.
