A $\pi\pi$, $\bar{K}K$, and $\rho \rho$($\omega \omega$)fully coupled channel model is used to predict the lowest isospin S, P, D, F-wave phase shifts and inelasticities for elastic $\pi\pi$ scattering from threshold to 2.0 GeV. As input the S-matrix is required to exhibit poles corresponding to the meson resonance table of the Particle Data Group. As expected, the $\pi\pi$ inelasticity is very strongly related to the opening of the $\bar{K}K$ channel near 1 GeV, and the opening of $\rho \rho$(4$\pi$) and $\omega \omega$(6$\pi$) channels in the 1.5 GeV region. The predictions of this model are compared to the various elastic $\pi \pi \rightarrow \pi \pi$ amplitudes, that were obtained from analyses of $\pi^-$ p $\rightarrow$ $\pi^- \pi^+$ n data. The role of the various resonances, in particular the glueball candidate f0(1500) and the fJ(1710) is investigated.
