The tennis star, Marion Bartoli will be an observer instead of a player for a change.

The tennis superstar Marion Bartoli will be seeing the French Open from within the confines of a TV commentary enclosure. No extra responsibility will have to be exercised on her part. 

She made the declaration last year that she was retiring from the highly competitive sport. She has played in 13 contests up until now and three years ago she lost the bet to Francesca Schiavone. 

It’s been quite a long time since a Frenchman snatched the prize in matters of the men’s single. Yannick Noah was the only one with such a distinction to his name and that was way back in 1983. 

In case of females the record has been a bit better on the whole. And while Bartoli won last year, her efforts had always been stymied at round two of each tournament she participated in.

Marion Bartoli spoke of how she would love to see how the French players do this time around. She meanwhile will be playing a different role as a sports commentator. 

"I'm looking very much forward to seeing how the French players are reacting to the pressure, how they feel," Bartoli, who will work as a pundit for British channel ITV and also host a morning slot on Eurosport, told Reuters.

However, she is not into French-bashing. That is not her game and it is not her style. She mentioned that since there were so many nations that played the game, it was a slim chance that the French had of winning even one single game. 

"We all know that the French players are more comfortable on the faster surfaces, but for a small country we have produced four grand slam champions in the Open era which is an outstanding result," she said.

The greater the competition, the more difficult it was to maintain your past position at the acme. Bartoli was known for her exuberance and spirit of liveliness on court. 

"For the men, if you have Rafa Nadal in your generation you can see how hard it is for a Frenchman to win the French Open. But overall I think to be able to produce four grand slam champions in the Open era I think it's a great performance," said Marion Bartoli.

 

She is not one to have her pluck and determination dampened though. She is currently engaged in jobs for two television companies so she has a lot on her plate. 

"I'm working for two TV companies and really looking forward to giving my best, just as I did on the court," she said.

She loves the game and will prove an able and apt sports pundit for tennis. As a very competent player, Bartoli will also get to exhibit her brains besides her brawn this time around.
