Former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli has turned to coaching after failing to make a full-fledged comeback to tennis.

According to reports, the 34-year-old will be training 19-year-old French player Lucie Wargnier.

Wargnier, who is currently ranked No. 757 in the world, was coachede by Hugo Lecoq and Nicolas Perrotte. It remains to be seen if duo will still be a part of her entourage.

Bartoli announced her retirement in 2013, shortly before being diagnosed with a rare virus, which made her ‘fear for life’.

By 2018, however, Bartoli got back in shape as she set her eyes upon making a competitive comeback.

And although she managed to make a brief comeback – participating at Tie Break Tens earlier this year – she has remained dormant since then.
