Bianca Andreescu’s “long road to recovery” is still not over as the Canadian has been forced to pull out of her Indian Wells Masters title defence.
The reigning US Open champion hasn’t played competitive tennis since the WTA Finals in October due to a knee injury, but was hopeful that she would be able to make her comeback in California next week.
However, the world No 4 is still not 100% and won’t feature in the WTA Tour Premier Mandatory event.
“As many of you know, I’ve been working through an injury I suffered last year during the WTA Finals. It’s been a long road to recovery, and while I was looking forward to getting back on court and defending my title at Indian Wells, unfortunately, I’m still not 100%,” she said in a statement.
“I would like to thank you all for your continued support and sticking with me on this journey. Your kind words have been so uplifting.
“While I am disappointed that I am not competing next week in a tournament where I have such great memories, I am focused on my recovery and rehab and working hard to get back on the court as soon as possible.”
