Bianca Andreescu, the 2019’s US Open champion, is ready to get back to action after missing the entire 2020 season with a knee injury. According to Andreescu, she is “perfectly healthy” and intends to participate in the Australian Open in January.

Andreescu, currently ranked No. 7 in the world, made her last tournament appearance at the 2019 WTA Finals. She made it through the first set of the Singles Round Robin match against Karolina Pliskova before having to retire due to left knee issues.

One year later, however, Andreescu resumed training and is ready to continue her quest for more Grand Slam glory. 

“I’m doing really well,” said Andreescu in a chat with Tennis Majors website on Wednesday. “The virus kind of pushed me back, and some little personal things here and there, but right now I’m good, I’m training hard … I’m really looking forward to 2021.”

Bianca Andreescu had a career year in 2019, managing to reach No. 4 on the WTA rankings thanks to the US Open title, which was her first career Grand Slam win. She also went on to post her best results Australian Open and French Open, while also winning the Indian Wells Open and Canada Open.
