Rusedski to play on next season

Rusedski does not know if he will play another Wimbledon
Ex-British number one Greg Rusedski says he will play on next season and wants to represent Great Britain in the Davis Cup in April.

The 33-year-old has a long-term hip injury and has slipped to 193rd in the world, leading him to previously hint he might retire at the end of 2006.

But he told the Sun on Saturday: "I'm definitely going to play next year, I don't know how much.

"If I have to, I'll play a few smaller events, maybe some Challengers."

Britain face Holland in Birmingham in April and Rusedski has made no secret of his desire to play at least one more Davis Cup tie on home soil.

"I've spoken to (Davis Cup coach) John Lloyd and if selected, I'd love to play in Birmingham," he said.

"To maintain my fitness, I will try to get a few wildcards to events," added Rusedski, who will not be heading to Australia for the start of the season.

British number four Rusedski said he did not know if he would be competing at Wimbledon in June.

"I cannot look that far ahead," he said. "I enjoy my tennis and it's difficult to know when to call it a day. I am closer to the end, I know that."

This weekend Rusedski is playing for an England side against Scotland in the Aberdeen Cup, an exhibition event which also features British number one Andy Murray.
