Top 10 Player, Jabeur Pulls Out Of WTA Finals

Tunisia's Ons Jabeur, the first Arab tennis player to break into the world's top 10, said on Sunday she was pulling out of the WTA Finals in Guadalajara.

She said she was opting to remain at home and focus on preparing for the next season.

"I am sorry to announce that I won't be able to go to Guadalajara as an alternate. I need more time to recover and prepare for next season," the 27-year-old said on Twitter.

"I am super proud of achieving my goal and my best ranking in the world: 7! Thank you for your support and see you next year!"

Jabeur, a Wimbledon quarterfinalist this year, lost to Spain's Paula Badosa in the Indian Wells semifinals last month.
