A gift from Monte Carlo to Wawrinka

Stan Wawrinka received a wild card from the organizers of the ATP 1000 tournament in Monte Carlo on the day of his 38th birthday. Al-Food (ATP 87) will start the sand season in the emirate. Wawrinka originally wanted to compete in Estoril (Port) next week, but decided against it in favor of a longer training stage in the sand. Wawrinka won the tournament in Monte Carlo in 2014 with a final victory over Roger Federer.

Andreescu injures his ankle

Once again Bianca Andreescu has to be afraid to stop for a long time. In the round of 16 of the WTA 1000 tournament in Miami, the 22-year-old Canadian apparently seriously injured his ankle when he tried to make a comeback in a match against Ekaterina Alexandrova (score: 6: 7, 2: 0). The 2019 US Open champion had to be lifted in a wheelchair in severe pain and was carried off the court in tears. “I’ve never felt this much pain,” Andreescu shouted on the court during treatment. Her opponent hugged her before being carried away, and the WTA later confirmed an injury to her left ankle. Andreescu always has injury problems.
