Last year’s Wimbledon finalist Marion Bartoli may miss the 2008 Championships because of a wrist injury.
Top-seeded Bartoli was upset in the second round of the DFS Classis on Wednesday and after the loss she said her participation at Wimbledon 2008 is under question.
“It’s been bothering me since before the French Open,” said the Frenchwoman.
“I’ve been having treatment but it’s tendinitis, and there is only so much you can do for that. It seems like 2008 doesn’t want me to be in great shape. I am always having something, some illness or injury.”
Bartoli said that she will skip Wimbledon “if it’s not getting better.”
“Missing a Grand Slam, especially Wimbledon, is a huge disappointment,” the world No.10 added.
