Bianca Andreescu, a Canadian tennis player, has stated that her back problem is not significant and that she would be able to compete at the National Bank Open in Toronto the following week. Andreescu, 22, began her summer season this week in San Jose at the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic.
Andreescu’s success in San Jose was brief as the Canadian lost to Shelby Rogers in the opening round by scores of 6-4, 6-2. Throughout the game, Andreescu was clearly having back pain and needed medical attention.
Some worried that Andreescu could have to skip the WTA 1000 competition in Toronto the following week because she didn’t appear to be feeling well on the court. But given that Andreescu is anticipated to compete the following week, the MRI readings apparently weren’t too bad.
“Hello to everybody! I had a challenging match yesterday in San Jose. I experienced some back pain, but I’m currently traveling back to Toronto where I will have some time to relax and prepare for my performance on Tuesday of the following week. I look forward to seeing everyone there “In a message published on social media, Andreescu remarked.
In 2019, Andreescu ran to victory in Toronto.
This year’s National Bank Open for women is slated to take place in Toronto. The National Bank Open is where Andreescu will make her fourth appearance in the main draw the following week.
Andreescu lost in the opening round of the Toronto National Bank Open in 2017. After Serena Williams retired from their final two years later, Andreescu won the National Bank Open for the first time. In 2020, the epidemic forced the cancellation of the National Bank Open.
The National Bank Open made a comeback to Montreal last year. Andreescu was defeated by Ons Jabeur in the round of 16 and was unable to successfully defend her National Bank Open victory from 2019. How far Andreescu can advance this year in Toronto is still up in the air.
