Her appearance and health have fluctuated so drastically over a short period of time I doubt her body is fit and ready for the long haul.

" ... https://www.eurosport.com/tennis/marion-bartoli-announces-plan-to-come-out-of-retirement_sto6449988/story.shtml

She said she has three objectives in her second spell, "To win the Fed Cup, play at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, and win one of the majors of the Grand Slam."
..."

Speaking to Eurosport, she said, "I tried to keep this secret for as long as possible, but it has become inevitable that I must tell the whole world."

Hahaha, it will be fun to see her spanked by the new crop.... she will re-retire before end 2019... I am even tempted to say before end 2018. She won’t even qualify for Tokyo2020

She was nowhere in her last year apart from winning a slam in a draw that opened like the Red Sea did for Moses. She is older., the field got better.
She will achieve none of this (I guess she can win a Fed Cup with Garcia and Mladenovic winning the matches)

I suspect that extreme weight loss might've weakened her bones, one of her assets.

I would stick to slimming black outfits. So unbelievable that a pro athlete can't find the formula for being in shape. This result can only be due to significant overeating and under-exercising.

Her return is slated for the spring so she has a few months to get back into Marionesque shape.

Curious. She's been practicing for months.. Someone posted the news and she succeeded in denying it.
Then someone broke the news again and this time she decided not to fight it.
Shouldn't she be playing ITF starting January? How is she going to get into Miami's draw out of nowhere? Another WC queen? Try that and you'll be out in R1. No kidding. WTA is no Legend Tour for retired folks seeking 15 minutes of fame. It's serious business.

@ Ace2Ace:
 
Forgot about the possible WC drama. RG must give her one as that's her home toruney, as must W where she triumphed.

And Marion Bartoli might be in the same category as Rebecca  Marino, whose return is delayed by 6 months because she forgot to notify WADA of her return and get herself back into the drug testing program. So unless Bartoli notified WADA 3 or 4 months ago, she won't be back for Miami.
she was hiding the news... too bad she can't start in January.
