Bianca Andreescu has reportedly retire from the 4th round of the match at Miami open due to injury.

The Canadian tennis player win streak was snapped at 10 matches after a 6-1, 2-0 loss to No. 21 seed Anett Kontaveit of Estonia in a fourth-round contest at the Miami Open. The 18-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., retired from the match with an apparent right shoulder injury.

Playing her WTA Tour-high 35th match of the season, Andreescu showed signs of fatigue as she suffered her first straight-sets loss of the campaign. She is now 31-4 this season.

When Andreescu called for a visit from coach Sylvain Bruneau after falling behind 4-1, the BNP Paribas Open champion was breathing heavily and did almost none of the talking during the timeout.

Andreescu called for the trainer to look at her shoulder after the first set, something she did three times during a three-set win over three-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber on Saturday night.
