Marion Bartoli has surprised people quite a few times this year and it seems she is not done yet.
Her win in the final of the Wimbledon Championships was not less than a shock for the tennis fans. Very few people would have seen that win coming. But, it came. Bartoli won her first Grand Slam singles title in her 13th season as a professional player. It seemed she was approaching her peak, but, then, the 28 years old Frenchwoman came up with something which was even more shocking than her win at Wimbledon. After an early exit at Cincinnati, the Frenchwoman announced that she was going to hang her racquets. That was a big disappointment for her fans.
It seemed Bartoli was history, but, now, she has given another interesting statement. In one of her interviews a couple of days back, Bartoli said, “Coming back is not something which is completely out of the equation. It can happen, but for that, I will have to feel that my body is ready.”
“Only a player knows what his/her body is going through. An outsider can’t understand that. It’s me who will have to make the decision.”
Bartoli’s name hasn’t been removed from the official rankings of WTA. She is still ranked 7th in the world.
The Frenchwoman said, “Honestly speaking, it’s not in my mind at the moment. I am really enjoying my life after retirement. But, you don’t know what will happen in future. My name will be there in the rankings till the season gets finished. Let’s see how things go. It’s tough to say anything at this point of time.”
Bartoli is currently in USA. She is working there as an expert for a television channel which is covering US Open.
Marion Bartoli has withdrawn her name from the upcoming Bank of the West Classic tennis tournament which is going to be played at Stanford, California.
She has become the second top 10 player to pull out from the tournament in the last couple of days. Before her, the Russian superstar Maria Sharapova had also withdrawn because of her injury.
The reason behind Bartoli’s withdrawal is also injury. She had picked up a strain while taking part in the Wimbledon Championships a few weeks back and she hasn’t got completely recovered from that.
Bartoli’s withdrawal means that the Polish star Agnieszka Radwanska is the only top 10 player who will take part in Stanford Classic this year.
Announcing her withdrawal from Stanford Classic, Bartoli said, “I discovered a hamstring strain while playing at Wimbledon. I was expecting it to heal in a couple of weeks, but, unfortunately, that didn’t happen. It’s still there due to which I am withdrawing my name from Stanford Classic.”
“It’s a great tournament and I am disappointed not to be fit to take part in it. I have enjoyed playing there in the past.”
The American youngster Mallory Burdette who is currently at no. 68 in the official rankings of WTA will replace Bartoli in the tournament. Kim Hall who is the spokesperson of the tournament announced that yesterday.
Hall said, “Unfortunately, Marion will not be here because of her injury. It’s disappointing for us as well as for the fans. On place of Marion, a young player from USA, Mallory Burdette, will participate in the tournament.”
Bartoli has recently won her first Grand Slam singles title by defeating Sabine Lisicki of Germany in the final of the Wimbledon Championships. Bartoli won that match in the straight sets by 6-1, 6-4.
