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.
