Johanna Konta withdrew from the Hong Kong Open with an abdominal strain on Thursday, putting her chances of qualifying for the season-ending WTA Finals in jeopardy
British No 1 Johanna Konta missed the chance to close in on a place in the WTA Tour finals and the top 10 of the world after being knocked out of the Wuhan Open by Petra Kvitova.
British number one Johanna Konta joined Heather Watson in the second round of the Hong Kong Open with victory over compatriot Naomi Broady.
British No 1 Johanna Konta boosted her chances of making the WTA Finals later this month by beating one of her rivals Carla Suarez Navarro in the Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open.
Johanna Konta must defeat Carla Suarez Navarro if she is to maintain realistic hope of competing in the end of season WTA Finals. Konta is 10th but only the top eight will qualify.
