آس 90 : 4 Key Defensive Free Agents Ravens Must Prioritize Signing

4 Key Defensive Free Agents Ravens Must Prioritize Signing

Although former Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald was hired as the new head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, the organization will have to figure out which key free agents they need to prioritize. The Ravens had one of the top defensive units in the NFL as they were a huge reason why they were one victory away from a Super Bowl berth. The Ravens defense held opposing quarterbacks to the 5th lowest completion percentage, were tied for 1st in yards per attempt by opposing quarterbacks and ranked 2nd in the NFL in touchdown passes allowed. What was most impressive about the Ravens vaunted defense was that they allowed the fewest points per game at 16.5 and they also led the NFL in sacks with 60 total. With Macdonald taking the Seahawks job, there exists a strong possibility that some of the Ravens free agents could follow him to Seattle. But there also exists the possibility that some of these players will remain in Baltimore as inside linebackers coach Zach Orr was promoted as the Ravens new defensive coordinator. Since the hiring was done in house, there isn’t expected to be much change to the defensive scheme and Orr’s familiarity with the players strengths should help keep at least some of them in a Ravens jersey. As we approach the NFL’s free agency period in the coming weeks, let’s take a look at some of the players the Ravens should bring back.

Patrick Queen

Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta must do everything in his power to keep the duo of Patrick Queen and Roquan Smith together. This was one of the best linebacker pairings in the league and both played huge roles as leaders. Smith led the team in total tackles with 158 and Queen was second on the team with 133. As the saying goes, iron sharpens iron and these 2 dynamic linebackers just made each other better. Queen brings an element of speed from his linebacker position and he also packs a punch for the Ravens pass rush. Being able to provide a frequent pass rush from the 2nd level of the defense is what made the Ravens unique and Queen was a major reason why. He has always shown flashes of potential since arriving in Baltimore but he played at another level last season as he developed consistency. His sideline to sideline pursuit of ball carriers was on an elite level and it appeared that Queen had a 6th sense about where a play was going. Signing Queen long term would solidify their linebacker corps for the next couple of seasons.

Justin Madubuike

It’s been one heck of a breakout season for Justin Madubuike. He led all NFL defensive linemen with 13 sacks, made his 1st Pro Bowl and was named to the NFL’s All-Pro 2nd Team. Madibuke also made history as he tied the NFL record with at least a half sack in 11 consecutive games. The interior pass rush is so important  in the NFL as it gives defenses schematical advantages if they can constantly bring pressure from the inside. Madibuke has drawn comparisons to future Hall of famer Aaron Donald and the Ravens have to prioritize getting him signed long term as he should be considered a foundational piece on the Ravens interior defensive line because pass rushing defensive tackles who can collapse the pocket are often difficult to find. He has been a menace for opposing offensive linemen and doesn’t mind doing the dirty work. Madibuke is fast, strong and plays with violent intentions and embodies what it means to be a Raven. He is so strong that he tosses offensive linemen like toys and if he adds more pass rush moves to his arsenal, he will be even more effective. Madibuke has a high motor and never gives up on plays. Explosiveness is a huge part of his game and that combined with added push moves could lead to another terrific season but hopefully it will be as a member of the Ravens.

Geno Stone

If any player on the Ravens defense earned and deserves a new contract it’s free safety Geno Stone. When the Ravens drafted Stone in the 7th round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the knock on him coming out of the University of Iowa was that he lacked ideal height for the position and that he also lacked top end speed. His positives was his high football IQ, being a strong downhill tackler and having a nose for the football. Stone is the perfect example of a player taking full advantage of an opportunity. He didn’t become a starter until Week 6 in his 3rd season when fellow teammate Marcus Williams went on injured reserve and hasn’t looked back since. Stone finished with 7 interceptions which was good for 2nd in the NFL. The main thing that makes this Ravens defense special are that their defensive back ups  at every position are used to playing as they have developed a true “next man up” mentality. They are not players who sit at the end of the bench and never expect to play. Stone benefitted from this as he just continued to develop and improve. A lot of defensive backs have instincts but can’t catch. Stone can do both as he seems to be a magnet to the football always being in the right position to make the big play. He understands that the Ravens can get to the quarterback quickly and keep him under duress and Stone realized that equals interception opportunities and just capitalized on what was an outstanding season. Stone is also adept at coming downhill and helping out with stopping the rushing attack. He is nimble for a safety but can be just as violent as a linebacker. He may be the odd man out since the Ravens already have a starter with Williams. Other teams may pursue Stone with lucrative deals that could lure him away. But there still exists a glimmer of hope that Stone could return depending on the volatility of the market. If all else fails, Stone could return to the Ravens on a one year, team friendly deal as a backup safety or nickel back role.

Jadeveon Clowney

Jadeveon Clowney has always been known as a force and opposing coaches are forced to diversify their game plan just to keep him under wraps. That’s the kind of effect Clowney has and the Ravens must decide whether bringing him back for another season is a priority or will they decide to go in another direction? Clowney normally doesn’t get a lot of sacks but this past season he tied his career high sack total with 9 and a half. Even though he is constantly double teamed, he can still get pressure on the quarterback and running backs have no chance if the play is run on the side of the field he is occupying. With the amount of talented players playing alongside Clowney in Baltimore, it only makes him better because opposing teams have to account for the other talent surrounding him and can’t just focus on solely stopping him. Playing on a team friendly, one year $2.5 million contract, it’s a real possibility Clowney returns for another run with this defense. By Clowney not trying to break the bank by commanding an absurd amount of money, it helps the Ravens front office by allowing them to focus on other key free agents.

آس 90 : Report: Raiders hiring Kliff Kingsbury as offensive coordinator

Report: Raiders hiring Kliff Kingsbury as offensive coordinator

HENDERSON, Nev. — The Las Vegas Raiders are hiring former Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury to be their offensive coordinator, a person informed of the decision told The Associated Press on Thursday night.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been finalized.

This is the first major hire for new Raiders coach Antonio Pierce, who had the interim tag removed Jan. 19. Kingsbury will be in charge of trying to turn around a Las Vegas offense that was 27th this season yards per game (289.5) and 23rd in scoring (19.5-point average).

The Raiders also will have a decision to make at quarterback. Rookie Aidan O’Connell went 5-4 after being handed the job, but questions remain whether he has the ability to lead the Raiders into and deep in the playoffs.

“There hasn’t been a lot of years I’ve been the unquestioned starter going in, so I’m used to competing,” O’Connell said last week.

The Raiders pick 13th in this year’s quarterback-deep draft, but the top names likely will be gone by the time Las Vegas’ spot comes up.

Kingsbury, 44, spent this past season at USC as an offensive analyst working with quarterback Caleb Williams, who many project will be drafted first overall. Before that, Kingsbury went 28-37-1 over four seasons as the Cardinals’ coach.

Arizona went 11-6 in 2021 and made the playoffs, but the Cardinals suffered several major injuries the following season and finished 4-13, resulting in Kingsbury’s dismissal. The firing came just 10 months after the Cardinals signed him to a contract extension.

In addition to Kingsbury, the Raiders interviewed former Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, Cincinnati Bengals quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher, Pittsburgh Steelers QB coach Mike Sullivan and ex-Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.

آس 90 : Pirate’s Rennie Stennett Goes 7 for 7 in 22-0 Blowout Against Cubs in 1975

Pirate's Rennie Stennett Goes 7 for 7 in 22-0 Blowout Against Cubs in 1975

48 years ago in Chicago, the Pittsburgh Pirates had an afternoon game against the Chicago Cubs. It was a record setting day in several ways. What stood out about that game was not just the lopsided final score that resulted in a Pittsburgh victory as they scored 22 runs and shut out the Cubs.

Moreso however was the play of Rennie Stennett. On that day, the Pirates second baseman came to the plate that afternoon seven times and with each at-bat he stroked a hit. Seven at-bats and seven hits. He became the only player since 1900 to achieve seven hits in a nine-inning game. One curious fact about the game is that the Cubs sent Rick Reuschel to the mound as a pitcher and later in the game his brother Paul pitched in relief and Stennett had a hit against both.

The final 22-0 score was the largest margin in a shutout in Major League history dating back to 1900. Prior to 1900 the Baltimore Orioles Wilbert Robinson duplicated the feat of seven hits in a single game and while there was one other player with seven hits, Stennett remains the only player to do it in a nine-inning game.

Of Stennett’s seven hits, two were doubles and he added a triple. His batting average after the close of this game was .287. In addition to the seven hits, Stennett has 11 total bases and scored five times as well as knocking in two runs. On the field he added four putouts. But Stennett was not the only Pirate with a big day. Star right fielder Dave Parker had a career day at the plate as well.

“The Cobra” as Parker was known had four at-bats and banged out just two hits, but they resulted in five RBIs, and he scored three times. Parker, like Stennett, also came to the plate seven times, one of which resulted in him being walked. Parker was hit by a pitch on one plate appearance and scoring a sacrifice hit on another. One of Parker’s hits was a home run. Incredibly, there were just two home runs in the game, Parker’s blast and one by Richie Hebner.

Hall of famer Willie Stargell contributed to the massacre with three hits in four at-bats with two runs scored and three RBIs. Aside from Hebner’s home run, he added two more hits and knocked in three runs, also scoring thrice. As a team, the Pirates hit Chicago pitchers around for 24 hits while scoring those 22 runs and their team batting average for the game was an incredible .453. Cubs’ pitchers walked six Pirates batters while striking out only five.

Light hitting shortstop Frank Taveras managed to have three hits in six at-bats all while carrying an average that rose to just .213 following this blowout. Every other starter had at least one hit as Al Oliver and Bob Robertson were the only starters with just one hit not counting starting pitcher John Candelaria. The Pirates in the end left 12 men on base.

For Chicago, their only three hits came off the bats of Jose Cardenal, Andre Thornton, and Dave Rosello. All three hits were singles. As for Cubby pitchers they had a disastrous day. Starter Rick Reuschel who took the loss to drop his season record to 10-16 lasted just 1/3 of an inning in the first as the visiting Buccos scored nine times in the opening frame. Unable to get anyone out, Reuschel surrendered six hits and gave up eight earned runs as well as walking two batters.

Relieving Reuschel was Tom Dettore who lasted 3 2/3 innings but gave up seven hits and another eight runs, seven of them earned. One of the hits he gave up was a round tripper and he walked two. After Dettore came Oscar Zamora, who pitched for just one inning and gave up two more runs. There would be two more Chicago pitchers making an appearance and they were Buddy Schultz as the Pirates hit him hard with six hits and four runs, two of them earned. Finally, there was the starting pitcher’s brother Paul Reuschel who pitched the final two innings and unlike the pitchers before him, did not surrender any runs.

In breaking down the inning-by-inning scoring, Pittsburgh scored nine in the first, two in the third, another in the fourth, six in the fifth, and two in each of the sixth and seventh innings. Perhaps Chicago Cubs fans had a premonition of what was going to take place because there were only 4,932 fans in attendance where for most games the crowds are much bigger.

The game took two hours and 35 minutes to complete and with the victory Pittsburgh improved to a season record of 86-64 and found themselves six games ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League’s East Division. This was the same division the Cubs were in and Chicago on this day remained in fifth place in the East with a record of 72-80 15 games behind Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh’s 22-0 victory may have been the largest margin of victory in baseball history when it resulted in a shutout, but it pales in comparison to what the Texas Rangers accomplished in 2007 when they defeated the Baltimore Orioles 30-3. That sounds like a football score! Here are some other notable blowouts:

  • June 4, 1911. The Cincinnati Reds defeated the Boston Rustlers 26-3. For Cincinnati they set a record by having all 13 players who stepped to the plate to score at least once. No team has ever accomplished the feat in a single game since.
  • May 24, 1936. New York Yankees 25 Philadelphia A’s 2. I guess you could say Philadelphia scored a safety. That is if this was football. While hall of famers Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey, and Joe DiMaggio were not the big hitters in this game, it was Tony Lazzeri who smacked four hits in five at-bats that included three home runs and an incredible 11 RBIs.
  • August 12, 1948. Cleveland Indians 26 St. Louis Browns 3. The common theme here continues that the losing team hardly scored while getting their butts whooped.
  • April 23, 1955. Chicago White Sox 29 Kansas City Athletics 6. After just two innings the score here was already 11-3 in favor of Chicago.
  • July 7, 1923. Cleveland Indians 27 Boston Red Sox 3. The second appearance on this list by the Indians and the city of Boston again. With Cleveland ahead 8-0 the Indians brought in Lefty O’Doul as a relief pitcher who proceeded to surrender 16 runs in just three innings.
  • June 8, 1950. Boston Red Sox 29 St. Louis Browns 4. The Red Sox finally made it to the winning side of a blowout and this one preceded the Pirates 22-0 victory over Chicago as the most lopsided score in a Major League Baseball game.
  • June 24, 2023. Los Angeles Angels 25 Colorado Rockies 1. Team records for the Angels were set on this night putting into their record books the most runs scored in a single game as well as most hits ever with 28. They also set the team mark for largest margin of victory and single game record for runs scored and home runs in one game. On the flip side, the 13-run third inning by the Angels was the most runs given up in one inning in history by the Colorado Rockies, a dubious team record.

All other blowouts in professional baseball took place pre-1900 and the results were:

  • 5/13/1876: Hartford Dark Blues 28 New York Mutuals 3
  • 5/27/1876: New York Gothams 24 Buffalo Bisons 0
  • 7/24/1882: Chicago White Stockings 35 Cleveland Blues 4
  • 6/20/1883: Boston Beaneaters 29 Philadelphia Quakers 4
  • 7/3/1883: Chicago White Stockings 31 Buffalo Bisons 7
  • 7/6/1883: Cincinnati Red Stockings 23 Baltimore Orioles 0
  • 8/21/1883: Providence Grays 28 Philadelphia Quakers 0
  • 6/24/1886: Brooklyn Grays 25 Baltimore Orioles 1
  • 6/11/1887: New York Giants 26 Washington Nationals 2
  • 6/15/1887: New York Giants 29 Philadelphia Quakers 1
  • 6/28/1887: Philadelphia Quakers 24 Indianapolis Hoosiers
  • 8/25/1891: Chicago Colts 28 Brooklyn Grooms 5
  • 9/10/1891: Milwaukee Brewers 30 Washington Senators 3
  • 8/1/1893: Pittsburgh Pirates 25 St. Louis Browns 2
  • 8/17/1894: Philadelphia Phillies 29 Louisville Colonels 4
  • 6/29/1897: Chicago Colts 36 Louisville Colonels 7

The GOAT has spoken.

Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who retired from the NFL in 2022 after 23 seasons, has finally weighed on who he believes should win the league’s Most Valuable Player award.

There are plenty of candidates this season, from quarterbacks like Brock Purdy and Dak Prescott to skill position players like running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

But Brady, who’s won three MVP awards himself, said he’d pick McCaffrey to win the award.

“He is definitely, in my mind, the MVP favorite,” Brady said on a recent episode of his “Let’s Go!” podcast, “and according to his quarterback, too, Brock Purdy, who says some amazing things about him.”

The McCaffrey-for-MVP conversation gained a lot of steam after the running back tallied 187 total yards and scored three total touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.

McCaffrey is currently tied with Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert for the most total touchdowns in the NFL with 20 and leads the league in rushing yards and scrimmage yards with 1,292 and 1,801, respectively.

Those stats have to count for something, but a quarterback has won the award every year since 2013.

A running back has won MVP in the past, though: Adrian Peterson took home the award in 2012 when he was on the Minnesota Vikings.

Other recent running back legends like LaDanian Tomlinson, Shaun Alexander, Marshall Faulk, Barry Sanders, and Emmitt Smith have taken home the accolade as well.

Brady can’t vote for MVP, but his endorsement of CMC’s candidacy might count for something among those who do cast MVP ballots.

آس 90 : Dodgers’ trade for Tyler Glasnow helps club solidify starting rotation

Dodgers’ trade for Tyler Glasnow helps club solidify starting rotation


سایت ace90

سایت آس90

The Los Angeles Dodgers signed the best free agent ever earlier this week. But even that didn’t address their biggest need.

The club inked Shohei Ohtani to a record 10-year deal, yet because he’s not expected to pitch until 2025, the Dodgers needed to bolster their starting rotation, which had taken successive hits in recent seasons. Thursday’s trade for right-hander Tyler Glasnow, which isn’t yet official, accomplishes that, adding a frontline starter to the fold.

Here’s a closer look at the deal as reported and what it means.

The deal: Tampa Bay Rays traded right-hander Tyler Glasnow and outfielder Manuel Margot to the Los Angeles Dodgers for right-hander Ryan Pepiot and outfielder Jonny Deluca. The Dodgers and Glasnow then reportedly agreed to an extension worth $135 million over five years. 

The runners-up: Glasnow had been mentioned in trade rumours for months, with the Angels, Reds and Cubs among clubs linked to him.

The player: Glasnow is the headliner of the trade, so we’ll focus on him. The 30-year-old right-hander possesses one of the most promising arms in the game but has yet to put together a full season due to several injuries. However, despite missing the first two months of the 2023 season with an oblique injury, Glasnow clearly found his form.

The right-hander posted a 3.53 ERA and 2.91 FIP over 21 starts and 120 innings this past season — both career highs. He produced a monster 33.4 per cent strikeout rate, which placed him in the 97 percentile of major leaguers, and generated a career-high 3.2 wins above replacement, per FanGraphs.

Glasnow underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in 2021, and the sense now is that his arm is fully recovered and primed for success. The Dodgers certainly believe so, evidenced by the reported contract the club doled out to him.

The fit: The Dodgers’ rotation endured a major blow in late 2022 when right-hander Walker Buehler underwent Tommy John surgery. Then, during the 2023 season, right-hander Julio Urias (who’s now a free agent) was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball after he was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence. Long-time ace Clayton Kershaw was injured and ineffective down the stretch and, as a result of all that attrition, the Dodgers’ rotation was exposed during a NL Division Series sweep at the hands of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Glasnow adds certainty to the team’s rotation picture and with Buehler set to return next season, the Dodgers appear to be in great shape. Add Ohtani to the mound mix beyond that, and we’re looking at a scary collection of arms on a team that has made the post-season in each of the last 11 years.

The next domino: Japanese right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto is the most coveted starter on the free agent market and the Dodgers were reportedly a primary suitor prior to this trade. It’s unclear how the deal for Glasnow impacts that, but it’s worth noting that Ohtani appeared at the organization’s meeting with Yamamoto.

آس 90 : Weight Management for eSports Players

Weight Management for eSports Players

سایت آس90

Back in 2020, we made some eSports predictions. At that juncture, Overwatch League viewing figures had fallen by 34,000 since 2019, down from 97,168 to 63,505. The recent Finals in Toronto this October also showed a drop in ratings from the year prior – however, this time round, a viewership of 157,600 represented a decline from 216,000 in 2022. While there are still fairly dramatic peaks and troughs, the overall trend in the 2020s is that eSports are on the rise.

We were perhaps right in saying that eSports will continue to focus on the ‘giants’ – the games that have stayed relevant for years, and in some cases over a decade – 47 of the 50 top-earning players play 2013’s Dota 2 to the exclusion of almost everything else. The Top 20 games look almost identical to 2020, with only the new versions of beat-em-up franchises like Street Fighter, Tekken, and Guilty Gear providing much in the way of new arenas for competition.

With the action focused on a narrow range of games, the elite players live at the margins. Any sort of advantage, no matter how miniscule, must be grabbed to have the best chance for success.

A fairly big one is looking after the physical body. There’s a misconception that video gamers don’t need to be fit as they’re sitting down and playing games. Is that true? Let’s take a look.

Losing Weight for eSports

There are many stereotypes about competitive gamers. Most are unflattering. Perhaps the one that’s stuck around the hardest is the South Park image of the overweight player who the boys have to beat in World Of Warcraft. However, as with many stereotypes, there’s often a grain of truth in there. 2020 saw the retirement of Jian Zihao – one of League Of Legends best-ever players. Uzi, as he was known, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and told by medics he had the ‘arms of a 40 or 50-year-old’ aged just 23. When reaction times in competitive gaming can be measured to thousandths of a second, it’s likely Uzi’s performance, as well as his health, would have suffered had he kept competing.

Some players who clock in with a BMI way over 30 – the definition of obesity – may choose to go down the medical weight loss route. As with any course of medication, this should be discussed with a professional before embarking. It’s increasingly common to be prescribed off label weight loss drugs. Ozempic, which has been hailed as a boost for those looking to lose weight, is currently only FDA-approved as a treatment for type 2 diabetes. In the US, medicines sometimes have to be off label because of the complexities of the healthcare insurance system. Contrave is a weight loss drug made from a combination of naltrexone and bupropion. Those two drugs are relatively commonly covered by insurance, but Contrave is not, so a medic may prescribe those two with dosing instructions to gain the same effects as the branded pills.

Weight Maintenance

Weight management for eSports players can be taxing. The activity is mainly sedentary, and while some pro teams have dedicated fitness programs, those may require a level of base fitness before starting. Crash diets don’t work. They’re even less likely to work when having to be built around an activity that takes up a lot of time when reaching for a snack, and getting back to the screen takes priority over preparing something healthy. There is some evidence that gaming does burn calories, although there’s also a correlation that irregular sleep patterns – sometimes necessary when tournaments span time zones – can interfere with hormone production, leading to increased appetite and feeling less full even after eating.

Successful weight management plans are tailored around an individual’s lifestyle. As eSports become more mainstream – which they slowly but surely are – it’s likely that more knowledge and best practices will come to light. It’s true to say that eSports may be a young player’s game just now. However, that isn’t true of all gaming – the average age of the American gamer is 35. As the pros start to age, expect to see them take an interest in avoiding middle-age spread.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards recently engaged in a high-scoring battle during the 2023-24 NBA season.

Both sides gave it their best on the offensive end of the floor while neglecting defense, as the final score was 131-128 in favor of the Bucks.

For the Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard, and Brook Lopez crossed the 30-point mark, while no other player even reached double digits.

Khris Middleton was one player who couldn’t see the end of this high-intensity game, as he exited the game, presumably due to a serious injury.

However, Bucks head coach Adrian Griffin confirmed that the team only made Middleton exit the game due to precautions, as revealed via Eric Nehm on Twitter.

It’s good to know that Middleton won’t be missing extra time due to another injury.

Even without Middleton on the court, the Bucks didn’t stop scoring against the Wizards.

After all, it takes a great shooting night to have three players on a single team to score more than 30 points on any given night.

As for Middleton, he exited the game when he had 7 points, 1 rebound, and 5 assists for the Bucks in just 13 minutes of playing time.

In hindsight, had Middleton been on the court, he would have had an opportunity to score at least 20 points as well.

Maybe the Bucks would have won the game much more easily.

But at the end of the day, Middleton’s long-term health takes priority for the Milwaukee Bucks if they want to win the 2024 NBA Championship.

Britain’s Dan Evans was forced to retire against Frances Tiafoe in Vienna after suffering what appeared to be a serious calf injury on Tuesday.

Evans, who was looking comfortable when leading 4-1 in the first set, pulled up after suffering a sharp pain in the back of his leg.

Despite seeking medical attention, the world No 35 was comforted by American Tiafoe as he pulled out of the contest.

It was only the second tour-level retirement of Evans’s career and it means he will be a doubt for Great Britain’s Davis Cup quarter-final against Serbia next month.

Evans had been expected to partner world doubles No 4 Neal Skupski in Malaga, but his injury could now put pay to captain Leon Smith’s first-choice line-up.

Heather Watson fell in the first round of the Abierto Tampico event in Mexico, losing in three sets to Ann Li.

Watson won the first set 6-4, but the American – ranked 50 places below Watson at 156 – raced through the second 6-1 and took the decider 6-3.

Maria Sakkari will replace the injured Karolina Muchova at the WTA Finals in Cancun

In other news, world No 8 Karolina Muchova has withdrawn from the WTA Finals in Cancun due to a right wrist injury and will be replaced by first alternate Maria Sakkari of Greece.

Czech Muchova was the eighth player to qualify for the season-ending tournament after reaching the Cincinnati final and the US Open semi-finals, losing to American Coco Gauff on both occasions.

“Together with the team and doctors we tried everything till the last moment to resolve my wrist injury,” Muchova said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, the time needed for the recovery is longer than we would’ve hoped for and therefore I had to make this unpleasant decision.”

As a result, the ninth-ranked Sakkari will feature in her third straight WTA Finals at this year’s event, which starts on Sunday, after reaching the semi-finals a year ago.
