Johanna Konta to miss Moscow & WTA Finals due to foot injury

Johanna Konta to miss Moscow & WTA Finals due to foot injury”

The in-form Garcia moved above Konta into the eighth and final qualifying spot for the season-ending tournament in Singapore with back-to-back tournament victories in Asia.

British number one Johanna Konta decides to withdraw from next week's Kremlin Cup, resulting in her absence from this year's WTA Championships.

Konta could still have overtaken Garcia by reaching the final in Moscow but has not recovered from the foot problem that forced her to pull out of this week's tournament in Hong Kong.

Konta had been in complete control to reach the finals, in a year where she won the Miami Open and reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon but a miserable run of form saw her let the opportunity slip.

The 23-year-old becomes the first Frenchwoman to qualify for the WTA Finals since Amelie Mauresmo 11 years ago.

Svetlana Kuznetsova beat Daria Gavrilova in the Kremlin Cup to book her place in Singapore at Konta's expense.

Konta's withdrawal from the event in Russian Federation means Frenchwomen Garcia has been assured of a place in Singapore and the line-up for the prestigious tournament has been confirmed.
