Former top 40 player Rebecca Marino to compete again after depression

Rebecca Marino is set to be back to compete again for the first time since February 2013, when she had decided to retire from tennis as she was battling with depression. By this weekend, she will play Saguenay and Toronto ITF events. 'I’m excited to come back and play in Canada, especially in tournaments that I participated in a number of times in my career.

I made the decision to return to professional tennis a couple of months ago and started training again during the first week of September. It’s been a pretty short training schedule, but I’m doing it because I enjoy it', Marino said.

'I don’t have any ranking goals or result goals right now, I just want to go in and enjoy the process and come at it from a different place than I was before. I want to be happy to be on court and compete, that’s all that matters to me.' The 26-year-old achieved a Career-High singles ranking at No.

38 in 2011, and played one WTA Final event in 2011 Memphis. She also reached Roland Garros third round and won three Challenger events. ALSO READ: David Ferrer and his absence during Asian swing: 'I got injured on holiday'
