This is very good news for Léa Godallier, the French number 2, who will suspend your career for some happy news: the Frenchwoman is pregnant and is entering her 5th month.

Consequently, she decided to put her international career on hold to fully live her life as a “future mother”.

An incredible year 2023 in every way

“I am obviously very happy with this news. And that’s why it was safer for the child to take a break,” she says.

“My year in terms of results is the best I have ever had, I reached my first 1/4 final and beat players much higher ranked than me (Alayeto / Araujo / Castello / Collombon…). And all this while playing with 6 different players this year… I reached my best world ranking (32WPT).”

“It is true that it required energy from me in terms of changing partners… but I adapted as best I could to the situations.”

“After having completed my professional projects during this year, I have the opportunity to carry out my biggest life project”.

The French team without Léa

“I have a little pang in my heart of course for the European Championships which will normally take place next March. I won't be able to participate. But I am sure that the girls will have a superb tournament, especially since the team is stronger every year with new players who will certainly strengthen this French team and I will obviously be supporting it from home.”

“That doesn't mean I'm going to stop training, I will obviously train, but adapt. My goal is to maintain myself as much as possible in order to come back as soon as possible next year, because yes, I fully intend to come back and even stronger.”
