Konta retires from Tennis


Johanna Konta, former British No 1, has retired from tennis.

The 30-year-old has struggled with a persistent knee problem over the past couple of years and slipped to 113 in the rankings.

Konta made the announcement on social media with a post headed “Grateful”.

Konta’s emergence at the top of the game began when she took the British No 1 spot, which she went on to hold for almost six years.
