Bianca Andreescu Pulls Out of Australian Open Warm-Up Tournament

The reigning U.S. Open champion was forced to withdraw from her first scheduled event of the season, next month's ASB Classic in New Zealand, due to an ongoing knee injury. The Canadian 19-year-old sensation, who rocketed by the rankings from 152 to quantity 5 on this planet this 12 months and referred to 2019 as her "Cinderella story", was billed because the top-seed in Auckland.

Her season ended abruptly at the WTA Finals this year when she was forced to retire from her robin round match against Karolina Pliskova due to her knee problems which ultimately forced her to withdraw from the tournament.

Overall, Andreescu went an unbelievable 48-7 in 2019, and finished the year ranked 173 spots higher than she started it-despite going nearly five months without finishing a tournament.

"We are disappointed not to welcome Bianca back and wish her all the best for a speedy recovery".

Former No. 1 Wozniacki has started her season in Auckland every year since 2015 and has made the hard court tournament the first stop of her short farewell tour.

In a generational Canadian sporting momentum with the victory of Master Mike Weir and Sidney Crosby's golden goal, Andreescu defeated Serena Williams to become the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.

Andreescu will hope to be healthy in time to play the season's first Grand Slam, the Australian Open, which begins in Melbourne on January 20. Then she used to struggle with her leg winning the Rogers Cup and the US Open by not beeing at her 100%.

"I think after that moment, I really thought that I can actually win a Grand Slam".

Andreescu closed the season at No. 5 in the world rankings.

"I don't know how to do that". She posted a 48-7 record in the campaign and totaled $ 6.5 million in revenue.

Rosenfeld, an Olympic medallist in track and field and a multi-sport athlete, was named Canada's best female athlete of the half-century in 1950.
