Murray, who had been searching for a coach since his split with Ivan Lendl earlier in the year, will benefit from working with the former world number one, according to his fellow Brit.
"I'm of the opinion that a great coach is a great coach, no matter what gender they are and if someone fits then it works," Robson, who will miss Wimbledon due to a wrist injury, told Sky Sports News.
"For me, I'm very excited to see how it goes and she has a lot of experience on grass and she's always been tactically quite good. She's still extremely fit so I'm sure she'll join in with all of his track sessions as well.
"I played doubles against her one year at Wimbledon and she's always been a fantastic player and I'm looking forward to seeing how it translates with them working together."
