Andreescu twisted her knee when she stretched to make a forehand return during a match in Shenzhen, China. She said at the time that she "heard a crack" and was quite limited after that, eventually withdrawing after getting results from an MRI exam.

"But I think that motivates me. I think pressure really raises my game to the next level. I think that's why I've done so well in bigger matches."
