Laura Robson cries as injury forces early retirement for former Wimbledon junior champion

Laura Robson was left in tears after realising her time had come to retire from tennis. Robson has officially announced her retirement from the sport following a string of injuries.

The former British No 1 and ex-Wimbledon junior champion has hung up her racquet at the age of 28. And she has opened up on her decision in an interview with the BBC.

Robson said: “I went through every possibility of rehab and of surgery. I had another hip surgery and probably did the best rehab block of my life – I went to all the best specialists and had some incredible people that I was working with just to get me back on court – and then the second time I hit, I just knew.

“It feels weird to say out loud, but I’m done, I’m retired. I’ve sort of known that for a while because of what I was told by the doctors last year, but I think it just took me so long to say it to myself, which is why it took me so long to say it officially.”

Robson admitted it was an emotional moment with her doctors after realising it was the end. She added: “We just sat down and cried together, but I know they are going to be in my life forever.”
