Bianca Andreescu to return in Montreal

She announced on social media that she will compete at the WTA 1000 tournament that will take place from August 7-15, 2021. With that, she also announced a contest wherein fans can sign up to virtually get a chance to interact with the Grand Slam champion.

The 21-year-old tweeted, Can’t wait to see you soon Montréal! Sign up for @Rogers Moments for a chance to virtually hang with me & win tickets to the @OBNmontreal.” 

Bianca first began her journey in Melbourne at the Australian Open this season. However, she crashed out in the second round and failed to go deep in the tournament.

After that, she competed in Miami but had to withdraw from her finals match midway after suffering from a right ankle injury. 

Later on, she was seen on the clay courts of Roland Garros on a journey that ended in the opening round itself. She followed that disappointing result with another one, losing in the first round of the Wimbledon Championships

Nonetheless, Andreescu is resuming her season after the debacle at the All England Club, and it will be interesting to see how she performs. We wish her all the best for the upcoming tournaments.
