Exclamation Safin withdraws from RCA

Safin withdraws from RCA

August 14, 2002

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Second-seeded Marat Safin withdrew from the RCA Championships Wednesday with an upper respiratory viral infection.

Safin was scheduled to play the second match on Stadium Court on Wednesday.

Arnaud DiPasquale, who lost in the qualifying tournament, replaces Safin in the draw. DiPasquale will play qualifier Stefan Koubek in the second round.

Safin was the RCA runner-up in 2000 and a semifinalist in 2001. He said he began feeling ill Sunday and was unable to practice the last two days.

We found a new place to live where we're taught to grow strong
And strongly sensitive, it always sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty, words and wine amongst the greenery
See how it is

good luck: thomas enqvist and thomas johansson

lol@Egg! too many Safinettes, so little time...

i hope he's better by the USO. i enjoyed watching him spank the Android in the finals two years ago. hard to believe it's the same guy!

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
