Konta, 30, said in a statement she was “grateful” for her career in tennis.
“Grateful. This is a word that I’ve probably used the most during my career, and this is the word that I feel explains it best at the end.
“My playing career has come to an end and I am so incredibly grateful for the career that it turned out to be.”
