From day one, I have always given my all on the court and take pride in continuing that until my last match. Deep down, I know I have given it my all in this journey, and it is time for me to jump and enjoy time with my family. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years. To all my coaches, physios, colleagues, family, and friends, thank you for your support. I couldn't have done it without you, thank you for helping turn my dreams into reality," Johnson wrote.
