In a post addressed to her fans, the Mississauga, Ont., native said that "after testing negative [for COVID-19] before my flight to Madrid, I was sadly informed that I had tested positive upon arrival … and therefore will not be playing at the Madrid Open later this week.

"I am feeling good, I am resting, and continuing to follow the health protocols and safety guidelines," she said.

"I look forward to getting back on the court very soon."

Andreescu 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 this year following a 16-month layoff after suffering a knee injury at the 2019 WTA Finals.
