Marion Bartoli has decided not to align in Stanford according to the organizers of the tournament. The French, who won in Wimbledon her first Grand Slam title, waived participation from Monday to the WTA tournament due to a thigh muscle problem.
“During Wimbledon, I felt a spasm in the thigh that has not completely healed in two weeks, said the French in a statement of the organization. I received care and I was confident in my chances to play at Stanford because it is one of my favorite tournaments on the circuit, but unfortunately I will not be able to take part in it. “
