The 21-year-old 2019 US Open winner announced this big decision in a statement on social media.
Andreescu said on Instagram: "I would like to inform you that I have made the very difficult decision to not play in the Tokyo Olympics later this month. I have been dreaming of representing Canada at the Olympics since I was a little girl, but with all the challenges we are facing as it relates to the pandemic, I know that deep in my heart, this is the right decision to make for myself. I look forward to representing Canada in future Fed Cup ties, and competing at the 2024 Olympics in Paris!"
Andreescu joined the ranks of several well-known players who have withdrawn from the Tokyo Olympics.
The newly crowned Wimbledon champion Djokovic said on Sunday that his chances towards playing in Tokyo is "50/50", citing disappointment with the decision announced last week to ban spectators from Tokyo Olympics.
