Andreescu hasn't played a competitive match in 10 months

It's set to be the first major tennis event since the COVID-19 outbreak became a global pandemic in March. However, players can still withdraw despite being named, and a recent report suggested the 20-year-old may not actually play.

The tournament also unveiled its promotional banner for the 2020 edition on Tuesday. Andreescu is not included on it, despite being the defending champion after winning last year's edition.
