The 21-year-old, named one of the most marketable athletes in the world this year, showed her huge potential by making her first Grand Slam final at the Australian Open in 2014, and cracking the world's Top 10.

But she suffered a big setback at the US Open in September when she sustained a head injury after slipping in the locker room.

She was forced to pull out of her fourth-round match at Flushing Meadows with concussion and remained troubled as she later withdrew from an event in Wuhan, China, and retired midway through a first-round match in Beijing with dizziness.

The Canadian did not contest another tour event this year and has slipped to 49 in the world.
