SAM Stosur is headed for a French Open final rematch with Francesca Schiavone just days before the grand slam starts in Paris.
After a first-round bye, Stosur launches her Italian Open campaign against either Argentina's Gisela Dulko or Czech Iveta Benesova. She is on a quarter-final collision course with Schiavone.
Stosur and Italy's Schiavone need only to win two matches each to set up a tasty French Open entree.
Australia's world No.7 lost to Schiavone in last year's Roland Garros decider.
Rome will be Stosur's last tournament before the French Open starts on Sunday week. The 27-year-old is keen to build confidence before arriving in Paris.
"I just want to play as many matches as I can this week because obviously the more matches you win, the more confident you feel," Stosur said.
"The last two tournaments in Stuttgart and Madrid I've played a lot better, probably better than I have all year. So if I can keep building on that, then I'd be quite happy."
Fellow Aussie Jarmila Gajdosova was due to play Italian wildcard Corinna Dentoni overnight, while Anastasia Rodionova opens against Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan.
