Mississauga tennis champ Bianca Andreescu will sit out Australian Open due to knee injury


Bianca Andreescu was a force to be reckoned with in 2019, but her 2020 will have to start out a little quieter due to circumstances outside her control.

The Mississauga native won’t be able to compete in the upcoming Australian Open this month, citing a knee injury that’s still in the process of healing.

I feel better and stronger every day but after discussing it with my team and following the recommendation of the doctors, the Australian Open is unfortunately too soon in my rehab process,” Andreescu explained on her social media.

She sustained the injury during the WTA Finals in Shenzhen, China last October. The injury also forced her to withdraw from the currently ongoing ASB Classic in New Zealand.

The Australian Open will run from January 20 to February 2.
