Canada's Bianca Andreescu has recovered from the knee injury that sidelined her for the entirety of the 2020 season, and she plans to take part in the Australian Open in January.

The 20-year-old, who won the 2019 US Open, hasn't played on tour since suffering a knee issue at the WTA Finals in Shenzhen last year.

"I'm doing really well. The virus kind of pushed me back, and some little personal things here and there, but right now I'm good, I'm training hard. ... I'm really looking forward to 2021," Andreescu told Tennis Majors' Alize Lim.

She added, "I'm perfectly healthy. I just really wanted to take time to build everything in my life, and I think this time off really helped me do that."

Andreescu, ranked No. 7 in the world, added that she will "100%" participate in the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of 2021.

"I wouldn't say I am ready tomorrow to play a match because I am taking it step by step, but maybe in a couple weeks I will be good," Andreescu said.
