Davis Cup Weekend: Remembering Marat

Marat Safin has certainly had an up-and-down career.

Last year in Davis Cup, he pulled out the heroics for the Russians against Argentina to give his home country a Cup title. This year, the Russian team is pitted against Germany in the semifinals, sans Safin.

While Safin is out with a pick in his hand instead of a racquet, the Russian team of Igor Andreev and Nicolay Davydenko will have to go head-to-head with Tommy Haas, a formidable opponent that will try to single-handidly try to upstage the defending champs.
