Bianca Andreescu has torn two ligaments in her left angle and is uncertain about how much time she will miss. The Canadian was forced to retire during her round of 16 match with Ekaterina Alexandrova after taking a tumble on her baseline on Monday night.

She took to Twitter to share news on the injury on Wednesday evening.

“Results show that I’ve torn two ligaments in my left ankle. It’s tough to say exactly how long it will take, but let’s just say it could’ve been much worse!!”

“It could’ve been worse”

Andreescu expressed relief that the injury wasn’t more severe and informed the public that she has already begun rehab.

“I’m going to take it day by day,” she wrote. “I am optimistic that with the right work, rehab and preparation, I’ll be back on court soon. Rehab process has already started and I will continue to give updates.”
