Andreescu withdraws from Wimbledon with shoulder injury

Rising WTA star Bianca Andreescu has suffered a big blow after being forced to withdraw from Wimbledon with a shoulder injury.

The 19-year-old has had a stellar year, marking her breakthrough on the WTA Tour by winning the coveted Indian Wells title in March.

She was the first wild-card winner and second-youngest ever champion there, and it saw her jump up the rankings so much she was seeded for the French Open.

Andreescu never got to enjoy that seeding though as injury struck, and it’s now cost her a second Grand Slam appearance in a month.

The Canadian also reached the final of the ASB Classic in Auckland in January, where she beat Caroline Wozniacki, Venus Williams and Hsieh Su-wei.
