A deliberately congested playing schedule for Kiwi tennis number one Marina Erakovic in the lead up to Roland Garros qualifying.

Erakovic has jumped nearly 60 places to 128th in the world after being a finalist at Morocco at the weekend.

She plans to squeeze another tournament in Slovakia this week before French Open qualifying.

After a disappointing run of form for much of 2016 to date, Erakovic says she needs as much game time as possible.

She says it's just as strong as internationals so absolutely there'll be good players there.
