Andreescu latest to withdraw from Australian Open

US Open champion Bianca Andreescu has joined Juan Martin del Potro and Richard Gasquet by withdrawing from The Australian Open with knee injuries.

“The Australian Open is unfortunately too soon in my rehab process and I sadly will not be able to play in it this year,” Andreescu said.

“It was a very tough decision to make as I love to play in Melbourne but I have to respect the recuperation plan for my knee and body.”

Tournament officials said that Gasquet had withdrawn with a knee injury while del Potro also was recovering from a knee ‘ailment’.

The tournament begins on January 20 in Melbourne.
