INJURED SAFIN TO MISS MASTERS CUP
Saturday 29th October 2005
Marat Safin will miss the season-ending Masters Cup in Shanghai as he has yet to fully recover from the knee injury which has blighted his season.
The world number five has been battling to get fit after suffering a ligament tear in his left knee shortly before Wimbledon.
The injury hampered his progress at SW19 and forced him to miss the US Open, and he has been unable to take to the court since his defeat to Robby Ginepri at the Cincinnati Masters in August.
"This is the best thing for him to do, not to play," said Russian Davis Cup captain Shamil Tarpischev, who added that Safin would rest for the remainder of the year in order to be fit for next season.
"He must first get 100 percent healthy before stepping on the court again. The most important thing is to prepare well for the Australian Open, where he must defend his title."
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Lleyton Hewitt and Andre Agassi have all withdrawn from the Paris Masters next week, but all are expected to be fit to play in Shanghai.
