Marion Bartoli of France hits a return during her women’s singles first round match against Olga Govortsova of Belarus at the 2013 French Open tennis tournament at Roland Garros in Paris, France.

The 2013 Wimbledon women’s singles champion Marion Bartoli announced her comeback to the WTA Tour after being absent from professional tennis for four years.

“I am delighted to announce my comeback to the professional circuit of the WTA next year. I am so looking forward to seeing you again during my matches and sharing some amazing emotions with you,” the French player tweeted on Tuesday, reports Xinhua news agency.

Shortly after winning Wimbledon in 2013, Bartoli abruptly announced her retirement from professional tournaments. She became a TV commentator after her retirement.

She won eight WTA Tour titles during her career, with the highest WTA ranking at No. 7 in 2012.

Bartoli aimed at returning to professional court next March, probably during the Miami Open. She needs wild cards in some tournaments for improving her world ranking.

Bartoli’s comeback was also a huge boost for France, who last won the Fed Cup in 2003.
