                === Kvitova withdraws from WTA Championships ===
 
 Istanbul, Turkey  (Sports Network) - Defending champion Petra Kvitova withdrew
 from the WTA Championships on Wednesday due to a viral illness.
 
 Kvitova  went  undefeated in  last year's  tournament, but  dropped a 6-3, 6-2
 decision to Agnieszka Radwanska in her opening round-robin match on Tuesday.
 
 "Of  course I'm  sad to  withdraw  from the  WTA Championships.  It's a  great
 tournament and it was an honor to be here," Kvitova said.
 
 Samantha  Stosur  will replace Kvitova  for the remainder of the season-ending
 tournament, which consists of the top eight players in the world.
