  Andreescu, Auger-Aliassime win opening matches at Miami Open MIAMI — Canada's Bianca Andreescu needed a set to warm up before cruising into the third round of the Miami Open. The No. 8 seed from Mississauga, Ont., downed Tereza Martincova of the Czech Republic 7-6(5), 6-2 on Friday in the second round of the WTA Tour 1000 tournament. Andreescu fought off two break points to take the first set, overcoming 21 unforced errors in the opener compared to 10 for No. 105 Martincova. After battling to hold serve to open the second, Andreescu took full control by breaking her 26-year-old opponent to go up 2-0 and glided the rest of the way to finish the match in one hour 52 minutes.

Canada's Bianca Andreescu will remain on the sidelines a little longer as the star confirmed on Sunday that she won't be participating in the upcoming Madrid Open due to an illness.

"I'm very sorry that I have to withdraw from Madrid, I was really looking forward to playing in Madrid," Andreescu said in a statement posted by the tournament's official Twitter account.

The Mississauga, Ont., native had been rehabbing an injured foot after sustaining the injury playing against Ash Barty in the final of the Miami Open on April 3.

Andreescu said the injury wasn't serious, but it did keep her from competing in the Billie Jean Cup on April 16-17.

Miami was Andreescu's third tournament of 2021 after a 16-month layoff that started after she suffered a knee injury at the 2019 WTA Finals.
