Johanna Konta, the British number one will miss this month’s WTA Finals as he withdrew from next week’s Kremlin Cup with a foot injury.
In order to secure a place at the Singapore season finale which features the top eight players in the world, the 26-year-old world number 10 had to reach the final of the Moscow event. Earlier this month he suffered an injury.
The Briton had held the last WTA Finals qualifying spot. A losing streak which extended to 5 matches with a first-round defeat at the China Open saw her displaced by Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia, who has won her last two tournaments.
Although, she missed the WTA Finals, which begin on 22 October, Konta is still in line to qualify for the WTA Elite Trophy, which gets under way on 31 October in Zhuhai, China.
A statement from her management says,”Jo’s participation in both events is under review with her team and her medical advisors.’’
