The British No.1 was in Singapore for the season finale, but was pipped to the eighth and final place after Svetlana Kuznetsova beat Daria Gavrilova 6-2 6-1 to win the Kremlin Cup in Moscow.

Konta will remain in Singapore as first alternate, meaning she will play if any of the eight players withdraw.

"I'm really happy to be here, even if it's now as an alternate, I'm still going to absorb as much as I can from this event and try to reuse it, and motivate me to try to make it here as the Top 8 next year," she said

Kuznetsova is the eighth seed in Singapore, in the White Group with defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska, Karolina Pliskova and Garbine Muguruza.

Konta, meanwhile, who became the first British woman to break into the top 10 since Jo Durie in 1984, will head to Zhuhai next week for the WTA Elite Trophy.
