RUSSIAN tennis star Marat Safin's arrival in Perth for the Hopman Cup was delayed by a late flight last night - but he went straight to the Cup ball in shorts and a T-shift, carrying his racquet bag.
And he sported the remnants of what appeared to be bruising under his left eye and a cut near his right eye.
Safin, ranked 29th worldwide, is scheduled to team with his sister Dinara Safina against Italy today.

The results have shown."
