Marion Bartoli adds new (non-official) tennis event to her schedule

Marion Bartoli keeps trying to make a comeback to tennis. After failing to do it these months as she hurt her hip in March, the French player could be back in time for the grass-court season. She has committed to just an exhibition event, at the moment, the Liverpool International tennis tournament that takes place from 21 to 24 June 2018, where she will be joined by other WTA players.

'Marion wants practice, lots of match practice, before announcing her official comeback, because she hasn’t set a date yet', tournament co-ordinator Anders Borg said. 'But she is coming back, not just to Liverpool, but to top level tennis.

She loved her time here in 2014 and she is really looking forward to returning.' Bartoli last played a competitive match at the 2013 Rogers Cup in Toronto one month after winning Wimbledon. ALSO READ: Ivan Ljubicic explains why Roger Federer will skip French Open
