Andreescu accused of 'hurting' vs Daria Kasatkina

Last week in Toronto, Andreescu appeared to be battling breathing and fitness issues in the first round.

Nevertheless, Andreescu managed to win the match in straight sets.

After the match, fans on social media took to Andreescu's lead against Kasatkina.

Accused of "pretending to hurt". Andreescu addressed those claims via his Instagram account.

"I was not feeling really well. Dizziness and nausea.

Nothing to do with my back, thankfully but I'm definitely not hurt

I really wanted to move on, this is the court I grew up on

And there was no choice for me tonight. it hurts me to see that

The ppl (people) really believe so. We athletes go through injuries, illness etc.

The last thing I want to do is pour that energy into the air, especially if it's fake?

Doesn't make any sense. Yes, I wish I couldn't show it, but I'm human too, at the end of the day."
