A stalwart in Canada, the young 20-year-old Bianca Andreescu is ready to take to the court again. She did not play a single game in 2020 owing to her knee injury and the pandemic outbreak. However, the Canadian was seen training in Dubai for the upcoming Australian Open 2021.

At 19, Bianca lifted the 2019 US Open trophy and became the first Canadian ever to do so. The same year, she won her home tournament, the Canadian Open, and ended their 50-year-long drought. It is interesting to note that she brought down American Serena Williams in the finals at both the events.

Currently, the Canadian is training in Dubai at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy – Serena’s coach Patrick Mouratoglou owns the centre. Similarly, many top players are headed to Dubai per the conditions in Australia.
