Bianca Andreescu won her second round match today over qualifier Maryna Zanevska 6-1, 6-4 in Strasbourg but then had to withdraw from the tournament due to an ab issue.
The good news is is doesn’t sound serious, but with the oft-injured Canadian, you never know.
“I’m super happy with the win today,” Andreescu said. “I will be pulling out of my next match, because I did feel a little bit of an ab tear, and I don’t want to push it at all for Roland Garros. I don’t want to take any risks. Nothing serious though. It’s a little discomfort.”
“Super disappointing having to pull out but the tennis I played in the two matches was really, really good. I executed everything exactly how I wanted to.
“So I’m really happy with these two matches before the French.”
Andreescu missed Madrid and Rome after a positive COVID test.
The 20-year-old has had a slew of injuries which have kept her off the courts. Since her 2019 US Open title, she has played just six events and only finished un-injured in three of them.
She recently had to retired with an ankle injury in the Miami final last month to Ash Barty.
She’s also had shoulder, hip, knee, back, ab and foot issues. She turns 21 next month.
