Murray skeptical about Chinsedski's comeback.

British number one Andy Murray expects Greg Rusedski to struggle to compete with the current standard of players on the ATP circuit following suggestions he will come out of retirement.

The 35-year-old revealed in January that he has asked for wildcard entries to some tournaments and expressed an interest in returning to play for Great Britain in the Davis Cup.

However Murray has warned 1997 US Open finalist Rusedski that he will find it tough after almost two years out of the game.

"I find it surprising. Everyone is entitled to do what they want but if I was to retire, I don't think I would try to come back," Murray said.

"It's a long time he's been out for and the game is very strong right now. If he goes and plays some tournaments and he is doing well, then maybe he has made the right decision. But I wouldn't expect him to."

Rusedski has not competed on the professional circuit since playing doubles alongside Murray's brother Jamie in the 2007 Davis Cup.
Commitment

Cup captain John Lloyd does not think Rusedski will return for the Europe/Africa zone tie against Ukraine in Glasgow in March.

And Murray insists he must earn his place back in the GB team rather than be picked on reputation alone.

"I said to John, 'I wouldn't just put someone on the team that's not played at all, just because it's Greg'," the Scot told The Guardian.

"It would be the same if it was Tim [Henman] or whatever. I did say that if Greg wanted to play, I think the play-offs are a very good idea - Greg could have gone in the play-offs.

"If he wins three matches then he is the best option because the other guys haven't really stepped up. I wouldn't be against it in that respect, if he was there by right and not just on his name.

"If he was going to come back for real and play for a year or so, it takes a lot of commitment and hard work, which Greg definitely had throughout his career.

"But to come back for just a couple of tournaments, I don't think there's a whole lot of point.

"He did achieve a lot in his career. If he wants to come back for the Davis Cup, and if he qualifies for the team, then that would be fine, but don't just throw him in because it's Greg.

I'm hoping this results in Rusedski falling into a volcano in some way or another.

He embarrased himself when he was at his peak, and can't imagine what he'd be like now his BH was amateur.

Muzza is right, tbh he should have a go at convincing him its not a good idea. He could go into coaching if he wants something to do.

Yep, getting to world No.4, a grand slam final and winning 15 career titles is really embarassing yourself. :rolleyes:

its either that or the fans are so overcome by the news that he was forced to give himself a high-five... and from what i know he wasn't above leaving himself the odd supportive voice message either...

I think he's simply holding up one finger for each of his fans.

Well I like the guy even though it appears nobody else does. Big lefty serve, huge forehand, great touch at net. He'll most likely get murdered after so long out of the game but still I'd rather watch Rusedski's tennis than the majority of players on tour today. Would love for him to pick up a few wins on his comeback.

The thread title is based on the false assumption that Murray's idea of critical thought and skepticism go beyond questioning his opponents sexuality.
