A knee injury kept Bianca out of the WTA Tour since the 2019 WTA World Tour Finals in late October last year. It was increasingly starting to look like she would make her long-awaited comeback to defend her title at Indian Wells, however, she pulled out well before the event was canceled.

In a statement announcing her withdrawal, she stated that she did not feel 100% yet.

While it didn’t matter ultimately given that the event was canceled, it did hint at Bianca’s progress. She had recovered from her knee injury, but just wasn’t feeling 100% when it came to match-fitness, which is quite understandable as she was out for months.

“I’m just taking it day by day, doing better and better as the days go on. I’m very pleased about that. I’ve been doing a lot of rehab on my knee, a lot of strengthening. Right now I’m hoping to play Miami Open.”

That is great news indeed! Andreescu stunned the world when she made short work of Serena Williams in the final to win the 2019 US Open title. Sadly, she suffered an injury just as the eyes of the tennis community shifted on her. We haven’t seen much of her talent since, but from the looks of it, we will soon enough.

The WTA Miami Open will start on March 24 should everything go to plan.

The Indian Wells event was canceled due to a registered case of coronavirus in the Coachella Valley. This led many to believe that the season was doomed and that Miami Masters would be canceled as well. However, the organizers in Miami released a statement saying they were going to carry on as scheduled.
