Canadian Tennis Star Bianca Andreescu Will Not Be Playing In The Australian Open Because She Wants To Focus On Her Mental Health

Canadian tennis star Bianca Andreescu took to social media to let her fans know that she will not be playing at the Australian Open next year because she wants to focus on her mental health.

Andreescu bared it all on her Instagram story letting fans know she did not feel like herself because she spent weeks in isolation quarantining and her grandmother spent several weeks in the ICU due to COVID.

“As you know, the past two years have been very challenging for me for a variety of reasons. Especially this year in particular, I spent multiple weeks in isolation quarantining which affected me greatly – both mentally and physically,” Andreescu said in her Instagram story.

Andreescu’s coach Slyvain Bruneau had tested positive for COVID-19. Due to pandemic protocols, she had to enter 14 days of isolation.

Andreescu came down with COVID-19 earlier this year, where she announced she is dropping out of the Madrid Open. However, she’s not the only tennis star that has decided to take time off.

Naomi Osaka had taken time off earlier this year because she wanted to focus on her mental health too.

Osaka alluded during her press conference, after her loss to Canadian tennis star Leylah Fernandez, that she felt unhappy when she loses a game.
