And I tried to play my best with what I had today.” Andreescu took a medical break during a set break to get treatment for ger foot. The second medical timeout came after a physical set where players were dashing to each end of the court to save the ball. Andreescu slipped and fell, appearing to injure her left foot, resulting in her limping to her chair where medical staff gave treatment.
