French Open finalist and world quantity eight Karolina Muchova stated Tuesday she would skip the WTA Finals in Cancun beginning on Sunday due to a wrist harm.
“I am heartbroken to announce that I will miss my first WTA Finals in Cancun,” the 27-year-old Czech stated on Instagram.
Muchova injured her proper wrist on the US Open in September, the place she reached the semi-finals.
“Together with the team and doctors we tried everything till the last moments to resolve my wrist injury,” she stated.
“Unfortunately, the time needed for the recovery is longer than we would’ve hoped for and therefore I had to make this unpleasant decision.”
Muchova may also miss the Billie Jean King Cup finals in November.
She will likely be changed in Cancun by Greece’s Maria Sakkari who will likely be making a 3rd consecutive look on the WTA Finals.
Her greatest end result got here in 2022 when she reached the semi-finals after posting an ideal 3-0 document within the group stage.
Ninth-ranked Sakkari received the largest title of her profession this season on the WTA 1000 Guadalajara Open.
