Another injury knocks Mississauga's Andreescu out of Strasbourg Open
A second round tennis victory at the Strasbourg Open has come at a cost for Mississauga's Bianca Andreescu.
The 20-year-old has had to pull out of the rest of the tournament after suffering an abdominal injury in her win against Belgian Maryna Zanevska.
After experiencing some minor pain during the match, Andreescu decided to end her run rather than risk further injury ahead of the French Open.
“I don’t think it’s anything serious,” Andreescu told reporters. “But like in the past I pushed through a lot of injuries and I just [made] them worse."
Currently ranked 7th in the world, Andreescu has suffered a string of injuries this season which has knocked her out of tournaments in the U.S. and Spain which followed her return after a 15 month absence from competition after injuring her knee in October, 2019.
She believes she will be ready for the French Open, the next in the Grand Slam series, which begins next week.
