It is no secret that the young Canadian star has been a victim of injuries in recent times. Right from the beginning of the 2020 season, she missed most of it due to a knee injury. That year, she did not compete in a single Grand Slam event. 

Reflecting on her season so far, she started off in Melbourne and ended up losing in the second round at the Australian Open. Unfortunately, she suffered opening round defeats at the French Open and the Wimbledon Championships.
