Kafelnikov Faces Leg Surgery Following Davis Cup Final

The day after the Davis Cup final ends, Yevgeny Kafelnikov's surgery begins. The 28-year-old Russian — currently training for the Davis Cup final against France, which is set for November 29th-December 1st in Paris — will undergo surgery on his leg in Zurich, Switzerland on December 2nd.


"The day after the final, Yevgeny will go to Zurich where he will have a vein in one of his legs operated on," Kafelnikov's close associate Michael Commandeur told the Agence France-Presse. "If the operation goes off correctly and he is OK, he will take care and come back in good time."

For the past two years, Kafelnikov has repeatedly stated his desire to retire should Russia capture its first Davis Cup championship in history, however Commandeur suggested the two-time Grand Slam champion will return to tennis should his surgery be successful.

"There is a good chance he will continue playing tennis," Commandeur said.

The former top-ranked Kafelnikov and teammate Marat Safin are expected to play the singles matches and partner for the doubles match in the final against defending Davis Cup champion France.

Sebastien Grosjean, Arnaud Clement, Nicolas Escude and Fabrice Santoro form the four-man French team, which is seeking its 10th Davis Cup championship in history.

Strange injury...doesn't sound too serious if he can still play Davis Cup, so expect him back next year
