Paris (AP) – Last year’s US Open winner Bianca Andreescu ends her tennis season.
After canceling her participation in the US Open this year and also for the French Open, the 20-year-old Canadian now wants to fully focus on the year 2021 with the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Andreescu wrote on Twitter that she wanted to thoroughly heal her knee injury, which she sustained in October, and then return to the tennis court in good shape.
“It was difficult to make that decision,” said seventh in the world rankings. But she wants to “come back stronger and better than ever”. Andreescu sustained the injury in October during the WTA Finals in Shenzhen, China.
