Bianca Andreescu is one of the best tennis players of the young generation, who won the US Open in 2019. In the Miami Open 2023, in the match against Ekaterina Aleksandrova, she was probably heading for the quarterfinals, when she suddenly shouted: – Oh my God! -. The tennis player left the court in a wheelchair.
