Williams said the spasms started during her come-from-behind win over Czech qualifier Marie Bouzkova on Saturday "and it just got worse".

Speaking after the match, Williams, who was targeting her first WTA title since the birth of her daughter, Olympia, in September 2017 said: 'I just knew.

Beaten by Simona Halep in the Wimbledon final in July, Williams was playing just her 24th match of year already disrupted by nagging knee trouble.

Williams is next expected to play in NY at the US Open, which begins August 26 and where she is a six-time champion and the 2018 runner-up.

"I am so sad to withdraw from the Western & Southern Open as it is truly one of the tournaments I most love to play", the WTA website quoted Williams as saying in a statement.

"So that's a little bit frustrating for me because I know that I could play. I tried to just block it out and do the best I can".

"This has definitely got my confidence level up there", Andreescu said of what her Toronto performance means to the rest of the summer hardcourt swing.

"But the taping helped after I saw the physio".

"Luckily, I've had some tough crowds in my career, so hopefully I will be used to it".

The Rogers Cup was Andreescu's first tournament after a right-shoulder injury sidelined her since the French Open in May.

But they say the Grand Slams are what separate the really great from the rather good, so while Andreescu has achieved more in the past calendar year than any Canadian, on the men's or women's side, her major moment awaits. "I know how she feels because I've done that many times in my short career".

"This week has not been easy".

After Rogers Cup wrapped this weekend, five players made significant ranking moves on Monday.

'This sucks, on you're back right, I know everything about you!

"I try to channel that pressure into something good", said Andreescu.
