Bianca Andreescu says she fully expects to play in January’s Australian Open after missing much of the tear with injury.
“I wouldn’t say I’m ready tomorrow to play a match, because I’m taking it step by step,” Andreescu said.
“Maybe in a couple weeks I’ll be good. But I’m waiting for 2021, that’s going to be the year.”
Andreescu said she was “100 per cent” ready for 2021.
The 2019 US Open champion suffered a knee injury last October while competing in the WTA Finals.
The 20-year-old has not played any competitive matches this year.
The Australian Open is scheduled to begin on January 20.
