Bartoli ill

LONDON (AP) – Three years after winning the title at Wimbledon, Marion Bartoli said she has contracted an unknown virus and her life is an “absolute nightmare.’’

The 31-year-old Frenchwoman is now extremely thin and said it’s because she is ill.

“My life right now, it’s an absolute nightmare,’’ Bartoli said in an interview on British channel ITV’s “This Morning’’ show. “What I’m going through, I wish it to absolutely nobody.’’

Bartoli won the women’s title at Wimbledon in 2013, and retired from the sport the next month.
