British number one Johanna Konta has split from her coach Wim Fissette after less than a year together and will not play again this season.

The 26-year-old, who has a foot injury, did not qualify for this month's WTA Finals in Singapore and will not play in the WTA Elite Trophy the week after.

"Wim Fissette and I have mutually decided to end our working relationship," she said on Wednesday.

"My foot is improving but it is still advisable to rest it further."

She added: "Things ended very amicably and I wish Wim all the best. We've achieved a lot together and I want to thank him for all his patience, hard work and expertise.

Konta linked up with Belgian Fissette before the 2017 season after parting company with Esteban Carril at the end of 2016.

She will continue to work with hitting partner Andrew Fitzpatrick, strength and conditioning specialist Gill Myburgh, physio Milly Mirkovic and mental coach Elena Sosa.
