BARTOLI RECOVERING FROM VIRAL INFECTION

Marion Bartoli has tweeted a picture of herself undergoing treatment in an Italian clinic.


The retired French star checked herself into a hospital after most of her fans took to social media to express their concern for her continued loss of weight.

Previously, she had vehemently defended her physique claiming it was a result of her obsession with physical work out. She said in an interview:

“I’m completely gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, salt free and everything organic. I eat steamed vegetables, salads.”

Many of her fans have disregarded her claims and begged her to eat more or stop whatever she was doing to remain so thin. She revealed that the reason for her shrinking figure was a virus that prevented her from eating well.

Forty-eight hours after the Wimbledon Ladies Invitation Doubles was withdrawn, she revealed: “I have a virus that my body is fighting. That’s why I can’t eat anything. I am going to have to go to a clinic, in Italy, at the end of Wimbledon.” She added that she believed being in a hospital would be “a good experience.” Read more »

Marion Bartoli has lauded Serena Williams

Marion Bartoli has lauded Serena Williams for dominating the world of Female Tennis for the past so many seasons.

As per Bartoli, the level of consistency that Serena has shown in big competitions, it’s unmatchable. She is one notch above the rest of her contemporaries in terms of class and skill.

Talking to a newspaper, Bartoli said, “Serena is quite different. There are not too many areas where you believe you can attack her when you are up against her. I can tell you that because I have been in that situation a number of times. Having her as opponent on the other side of the court, it’s a nightmare.”

“Over the past decade or so, she has been able to dominate almost everyone. Yes, a few players have challenged on and off. The likes of Maria and Victoria, but, overall if you see, nobody has managed to shake her off her position and that’s because she is not vulnerable on any front.”

“She has got extraordinary potential and that’s why, she just keeps on adding more and more titles to her name. Her consistency is unbelievable.”

Bartoli, however, played down the question if Serena is the greatest female to have ever braced the game of Female Lawn Tennis. Read more »

Marion Bartoli fan to return soon

If you are a Marion Bartoli fan and you had started anticipating the return of the Frenchwoman after her recent tweet, you are in for a bit of a disappointment.

Bartoli has no plans to make her way back on the tour.

One of the posts on Bartoli’s Twitter account a few days ago suggested she was missing the game and was looking to come out of retirement.

That post read, “What’s the thinking of you guys? A comeback would be good for me or not?”

A lot of Bartoli’s fans responded to that post of her with some of them urging her to make the comeback, while, the others telling her that she did well by quitting in her prime.

According to Bartoli, it was just a random post and did not mean anything substantial. She was just looking to see what the opinion of the fans was and she got to see that.

Speaking in an event, the veteran said, “You see more people were of the view that I should stay away and I agree to them. Once you retire, it’s over. The idea behind that tweet was just to give the fans the opportunity to express what their point of view is.” Read more »
