British number one Johanna Konta has pulled out of a WTA event taking place in the Czech Republic as she is worried about the coronavirus.

The withdrawal from the Ostrava Open means she will not play until 2021.

She most recently was knocked out of the US Open by teenager Coco Gauff.

The Ostrava Open will start on Monday.
