Robson, who reached the fourth round of the 2012 US Open and Wimbledon the following year, underwent a wrist procedure in 2014 before having three hip surgeries.
Robson, a former world number 27, won the junior title at the 2008 Wimbledon grass-court Grand Slam at the age of 14 and went on to win an Olympic medal with Andy Murray in London in 2012.
The 28-year-old, who reached the fourth round of the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon the following year, underwent wrist surgery in 2014 before having three hip surgeries.
She was last in action at an ITF tournament in 2019.
“I went through every possibility of rehab and of surgery,” Robson told the BBC. “I had another hip surgery and probably did the best rehab block of my life .. 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 it took me so long to say it to myself, which is why it took me so long to say it officially.”

Laura Robson announced her retirement on Monday, citing ongoing injury issues as the reason.
Robson had her first hip surgery in July 2018, and she returned to the match court in the spring of 2019, but the pain persisted, so she had her second operation in December.
