Lendl Decides to Stay

Ivan Lendl said on Monday he has shelved any plans of retirement from top level tennis until the end of this year.


Lendl, 33, playing on a U.S. team for the first time at the Hopman Cup, said he felt happier about his game after a seven-week winter break from the circuit. "I'm definitely giving myself the whole year," said Lendl, who had a dismal 1993 with first-round defeats at the Australian, French and U.S. Opens.


Lendl agreed his enthusiasm for the game was at a low ebb when he completed his final tournament of the year in Antwerp last November.
