World number four Simona Halep says she has only a "50-50" chance of being fit for next week's French Open.

The 25-year-old Romanian tore an ankle ligament during the Italian Open final.

"I'm keeping my fingers crossed," said Halep, the beaten finalist at Roland Garros in 2014. "Doctors say it's 50-50 at the moment but it's made good improvement since Sunday."

British number four Tara Moore will not be in Paris after losing 6-2 7-5 in qualifying to Taiwan's Kai-Chen Chang.

Elsewhere, Britain's Kyle Edmund was beaten 3-6 7-5 6-4 by France's world number 32 Gilles Simon at the Lyon Open.
