In a recent interview with The New York Times, Marion Bartoli revealed that there was a time when she weighed a mere 90 pounds.

The former Wimbledon champion announced her retirement from tennis in 2013 following which she was diagnosed with a rare virus. The Frenchwoman even claimed that she feared for her life at one of time.

Cut to 2018, Bartoli is back on court for the first time since August 2013 as she competed at the Tie Break Tens, held at the Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

The 33-year-old looked as bulked up as she was during her prime even as she bowed out in the quarter-finals following a 5-10 defeat at the hands of American veteran Serena Williams.

The competition was won by Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina, who beat Shuai Zhang of China 10-3 in the final.

Meanwhile, Bartoli is next expected to participate in Miami (March 21 to April 1) before competing in Monterrey (April 2-8).
