2nd March 2005 - Marat's thoughts on Davis Cup: Russia v Chile 2005

" With the Chile Team you always have to be on the lookout. Especially it concerns their first "racket" Gernando Gonzales who is rather experienced and feels comfortable on the hard surface". According to Safin, one must not disregard Chile's second player Adrian Garcia, whom Marat knows personally and has already seen him train in Moscow. Marat thinks that additional advantage on Russia's side is the fact that Nicholas Massu, the Olympics champion, will not be playing in Moscow sure to injury. "We, of course, will be heading towards a victory. And if luck will be on our side, we have every right to look forward to a good performance throughout the whole round". www.lenta.ru/news/2005/03/01/tennis

Safin Warns of Chilean Threat


The Associated Press
Australian Open champion Marat Safin warned his Russian teammates on Tuesday not to take lightly first-round Davis Cup opponent Chile.

"The tie will be a tough one, but we are playing in Moscow and have every chance to win," Safin said of the tie that begins Friday. "But we must be really careful."

Since winning its first Davis Cup title in 2002, Russia has won only one World Group tie -- in 2003, and needed a victory over Thailand in last year's playoff round to remain in the elite group.

Chile is unbeaten in its last four Davis Cup ties, and did not lose a single match in three ties last season on its return to the World Group after a 20-year absence.

Even without double Olympic champion Nicolas Massu, who is injured, Chile has arrived with confidence.

"If we didn't think we have a chance to win, we wouldn't have come here and would stay in summer down in Chile and were probably going to the beach," Chile captain Sergio Elias said.

"We understand, it's a difficult task. However, that's a part of the competition. We have great players, great team spirit. We've come here to do the best we can. If we don't win here, well, tough luck," he said.

Massu has not played since the Australian Open, sidelined by a leg injury.


"Massu is definitely an important part of the team, but he did talk to all of us, wishing us good luck. And he was really sorry he could not come here," Elias said.

In Massu's absence, his gold-medal doubles partner in Athens and singles bronze medalist Fernando Gonzalez will lead Chile's effort.

"The team spirit was very important [at the Olympics]," Gonzalez said. "Always when we play for our country we play much better than on the tour. So this will be very important this week."

Gonzalez, ranked No. 19 by the ATP -- just above Massu, has a 16-5 record in Davis Cup play and is unbeaten in his last 10 matches over two years.

Elias' choices for Chile's second singles are Adrian Garcia, Hermes Gamonal and Paul Capdeville.

His Russian counterpart Shamil Tarpishchev has Mikhail Youzhny, Nikolai Davydenko and Igor Andreyev to select from.

"Down in my soul, I have made a decision, but it's too early to say -- we have two more days," Tarpishchev said.

Safin has a 20-14 record for Russia. He lost to Nicolas Kiefer in the first round of the Dubai Open last week -- his only match since winning his second Grand Slam, in Melbourne in January.

But Safin said it was easier for him to play for the national team than in the individual matches.

"It's easier for me to play for the national team especially in Moscow. When you play individually, sometimes your fans get disappointed when you lose and they don't like it and come out with claims," Safin said.

Chile pleased Russian Davis Cup surface not too fast

MOSCOW, March 3 (Reuters) - Chile will use only two players in this weekend's Davis Cup tie against a Russian team led by Australian Open champion Marat Safin and are happy the Moscow playing surface is not as fast as they had feared.

Fernando Gonzalez and Adrian Garcia will face four different Russian players in the five rubbers over three days.

"They are trained to endure three days of five sets, they are in good form now," Chile captain Sergio Elias said. "There is good chemistry between our players.

"Even though the courts are fast, they are not as super-fast as we thought they would be,"
Elias told Reuters after the world group first round draw on Thursday.

A toe injury has ruled out Chile's top player, double Olympic gold medallist Nicolas Massu.

Russia's 2002 Davis Cup hero Mikhail Youzhny starts the tie when he faces Gonzalez in what promises to be a close match between players ranked 16th and 14th respectively.

World number four Safin will then take on Garcia.

Youzhny guided Russia to their first Cup victory three years ago when he came from two sets down to beat France's Paul-Henri Mathieu in the decisive fifth rubber.

Elias said the doubles match against Igor Andreev and Nikolay Davydenko would be the decisive rubber for his team. Gonzalez won the Olympic gold in doubles in Athens last year.

Russian captain Shamil Tarpishchev was cautious about his team's prospects.

"There is a rule about not predicting the future, though we are tempted to think that we might play all our matches at home until the final," he told reporters earlier in the week.
