Safin Picked for Russia

Russia's Davis Cup captain Shamil Tarpishchev on Monday named Marat Safin in his four-man squad for next week's World Group quarterfinal against Sweden, even though the U.S. Open champion is carrying an injury.

Safin, still suffering the effects of a rib cage injury he sustained in Dubai last month, was beaten in the second round of the Ericsson Open on Friday by Spain's Juan Balcells after the injury started to affect his left hip.

Also named in the squad for the April 6-8 tie in Malmo were Olympic champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov and newcomers Mikhail Yuzhny and Andrei Stolyarov.
