The former British number one retired from the game 17 months ago but had been tipped for a return to the court after Britain were relegated from the World Group last weekend following a 3-2 loss to Austria.

Britain’s next match in the competition will be against Ukraine in May and reports suggested Rusedski could play in that match to help them regain their place in the top tier of the competition. However, Rusedski’s spokesperson, Sharon Park, said that the 35-year-old has no plans to return to action.

“Greg has retired and he has no plans to return to professional tennis. He is focused on his role (as a talent scout) at the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) and other commitments,” she said.
