Andreescu, who made her return from a two-month layoff due to a shoulder injury on Day 3 with a three-set win over Marie Bouzkova, pulled out of her doubles match earlier in the day, citing the injury as the reason.

The Canadian is currently on a run of 11 consecutive wins in completed matches, but she did retire with an injury in her last match at Miami.
Kenin will move on to face either Serena Williams or Kurumi Nara in the third round. It is the American's first trip to the third round at Roland Garros (second main draw appearance).
