A month after her stunning 2013 Wimbledon title, Marion Bartoli abruptly hung up the racquet and retired. But has the eccentric Frenchwoman changed her mind.

In a tweet yesterday, she asked her fans if she should return. “Coming back or not coming back to #tennis? What do you think?Should I? Donnez moi votre avis, retour ou pas au #tennis” she posted.

Now 30, is Bartoli being serious? According to a L’Quipe poll, 79% of her fans responded that she shouldn’t try a comeback.

Many players, especially the women, have retired and then returned. Most recently we’ve seen comebacks Martina Hingis, Kim Clijsters, Nicole Vaidisova and Mirjana Lucic.

RZ Says:

I always liked Bartoli but I don’t think she should come back either. She went out a Wimbledon champ. Nothing is going to beat that.


SG1 Says:

If playing tennis again makes her happy, why not? There certainly won’t be any undue expectations.


Hippy Chick Says:

Gorgeous looking girl very photogenic,if she decides against a comeback she would make a great model IMO,there is a void in the womens game ATM,like SG1 i wouldnt expect miracles but if its what she wants then why not?….


RZ Says:

@SG1 – very true. If it will make her happy, she should.

I suspect she won’t come back though. It sounds as if she had one heck of a shoulder injury that she had been playing through when she retired.


Humble Rafa Says:

I have missed seeing her service motion. It was a piece of art.
