We extend a recent non-perturbative chiral approach to $\pi\pi$ S-wave scattering of Oller and Oset by including the couplings to the $\eta\eta$-channel. We find that the isospin-zero and isospin-two $\pi\pi$ S-wave phase shifts of the model deviate considerably from a recent solution of the Roy-equations. Including the couplings with the $\eta\eta$-channel does not improve the situation. In particular, no $\sigma$-meson like enhancement structure shows up in the Roy-equation solution. We also consider the $\pi\pi$-scattering lengths in this approach.
