Johanna Konta has brought her season.
The no 1 hasnt played since losing in early September to Elina Svitolina from the US Open quarter-finals.
Her withdrawal is in Zhuhai next week, a event for those top-20 players that missed out in the WTA Finals.
Its a disappointing ending to a brilliant time for Konta, that began the year ranked 39 and is currently sitting 11th after reaching the last eight in the US Open and Wimbledon and enjoying her third grand slam.
Kontas development on clay was the surprise, together with all the reaching the final of the Italian Open in Rome about which had previously been by some way her weakest surface.
She will hope to find out where she left off by shoving to the top 10 next season.
