British number one Johanna Konta will miss this month’s WTA Finals after withdrawing from next week’s Kremlin Cup with a foot injury.
The 26-year-old world number 10 had to reach the final of the Moscow event in order to secure a place at the Singapore season finale which features the top eight players in the world.
Konta suffered the injury prior to the Hong Kong Open earlier this month.
Until then, the Briton had held the last WTA Finals qualifying spot.
