Bartoli to return to court in Liverpool

Former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, who announced her comeback last fall, had set Miami as a date to return to tournament play.

But after a test-the-waters appearance at the Tie Break Tens event in New York before Indian Wells, the comeback was put off indefinitely.


The Liverpool Echo reports that she intends to get back to the court at the Liverpool Open, a four-day exhibition held from June 21-24, prior to Wimbledon.

“Marion wants practice, lots of match practice, before announcing her official comeback, because she hasn’t set a date yet,” tournament coordinator Anders Borg said.
