After missing the entire 2020 season with various injuries and health concerns, Bianca Andreescu can’t seem to catch a break.

The Canadian whose fitness luck fell off a ledge after winning the 2019 US Open and then going dark for months with her problems, is now out of the Madrid Masters.

The WTA No. 6 announced her bad news on social media, explaining that she had tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival onsite for the pre-French Open clay event which begins later this week and is now isolating in the Spanish capital.

“I am feeling good, I’m resting and continuing to follow the health protocols and safety guidelines,” she said. “I look forward to getting back out on the court very soon.”

The 20-year-old added that she had come up negative prior to boarding her transatlantic flight.

Since winning her Open title two years ago over Serena Williams, Andreescu has been plagued by problems including a torn meniscus in her knee and an abdominal strain. 

Her 2021 got off poorly with a second-round Australian Open setback followed by a losing final last month in Miami, her last tournament nearly a month ago.
