Simona Halep and Bianca Andreescu Announce Unfortunate News After Australian Open 2021 Disappointment
The 2021 season got off to a great start with the successful completion of the Australian Open 2021. The season has just begun and has got a lot more exhilarating tournaments ahead one after the other. The Qatar Open 2021 will begin soon and fans are quite excited about it. However, Simona Halep and Bianca Andreescu announced some unfortunate news ahead of that.
World No.3 Simona Halep recently backed out from the Qatar Open 2021. She has given no reason for her withdrawal so far which has made fans even more curious. Halep played well at the Australian open 2021 before getting knocked out by Serena Williams in straight sets.
Similarly, World No.9 Bianca Andreescu has also withdrawn from the Qatar Open 2021 due to an injury in her left leg. It is quite alarming since she returned to the court after almost a year at the Australian Open 2021.
The Qatar Open 2021 will begin from March 6, 2021, and will extend till March 14, 2021. With two of the top 10 players missing, it’ll be intriguing to see who will be able to win the tournament.
Simona Halep and Bianca Andreescu at the Australian Open 2021
Simona Halep played brilliantly at the Australian Open 2021. She made an incredible comeback against Veronika Kudermetova and also took her revenge on Iga Swiatek. However, the mighty Serena Williams thrashed her in the quarters that ended her journey at the Grand Slam.
On the other hand, Bianca Andreescu didn’t enjoy a great comeback. Hsieh Su-Wei eliminated her from the Grand Slam in the second round only and she faced a lot of trouble in that match. After the Australian Open 2021, she also played at the Phillip Island Trophy where she lost to Marie Bouzkova in the semis.
Fans surely hope that Andreescu’s injury is not that serious and she’ll recover soon. They also hope that Halep will soon return to the court. Will Simona Halep regain her spot and climb back to the second or first spot in the rankings in 2021?
