British No 1 Johanna Konta has played her last competitive match of the 2019 season as she has been forced to end her campaign due to a knee injury.

The current world No 11 hasn’t played since she lost in the quarter-final of the US Open in early September as she was forced to pull out of several Asian tournaments because of “slight knee pain”.

After initially predicting a return to action in mid-October, Konta has since decided to call an end to the season.

The 28-year-old endured a nightmare start to her 2019 campaign as she slumped to No 47 in the rankings, but she finally found form during the clay season and reached the semi-finals at Roland Garros before making it to the last eight at Wimbledon and the US Open.
