Former World No. 4 and US Open finalist Greg Rusedski is looking to go into the yoga and wellness retreat business. According to The Daily Mail, the 46 year old Rusedski and his wife Lucy, who have been married for two decades now, have applied to use their Grade II-listed West Sussex farmhouse near the village of Kirdford as a part-time wellness retreat for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The report says that each retreat would be for a maximum of 12 guests, who would undertake activities in yoga, creative arts and group work, and the couple also intend to run one to two day residential workshops and programmes to incorporate team-building and executive coaching that would help develop confidence and self-esteem.
Lucy's background as a therapist working for the NHS will surely come of good use in this project. The council will rule on the proposal next month. Rusedski was the British No. 1 in 1997, 1999 and 2006. In 1997, he was the US Open finalist, which saw him win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award and the ITV Sports Champion of the Year Award.
He also scored 30 wins in 43 matches for the Great Britain Davis Cup team and won 15 ATP singles titles during his career. Rusedski and his wife have been together since 1991 - they met while he was competing in a junior tournament where she was a ball girl. They married in December 1999 and have two children together.
