World No. 4 Caroline Garcia opens up on her eating problems

BRUSSELS (AP) — Caroline Garcia says she had to deal with bulimia for a spell, triggered by losses and pain from a lingering foot injury that affected her daily life. Now back to a career-high No.4 in the WTA rankings and in bright spirits, the 29-year-old opened up about her struggles in an interview with L’Equipe. After several inconsistent years marred by doubts and injuries Garcia took a break from tennis in March to nurse her foot. It brought dividends as the Frenchwoman enjoyed a tremendous second half of the 2022 season with titles at the WTA Finals, Cincinnati, Bad Homburg and Warsaw. Before that stretch Garcia said “there have been many tears, many sleepless nights”.
