Safin, who is playing in the Hopman Cup for the fourth time, arrived
in Perth on Saturday night with bruises and cuts on his face,
including a heavy bruise under his left eye.

After Sundays match, he first joked in an on-court television
interview that the facial injuries came from working out hard, but
then said, without elaborating: I got in trouble in Moscow. It was
much worse

At a later press conference, Safin admitted getting into a fight about
a week ago in the Russian capital.

Its OK, I can survive, Safin said. Just some small problem that I
wasnt in the right place at the right time. Yes, I won the fight. Im
good, Im OK.

When Safin arrived Saturday night, he first asked for a tournament
doctor.

I wasnt sure why he was arriving so late, why he was requesting to
play a day later, but now I know why, tournament director Paul
McNamee said.

I saw him in the lobby and he didnt look good. He said I need two
things, I need to see a doctor and I need to practice. So I got the
doctor and he gave him some treatment and then Safin went and
practiced.

Pic here, doesn't look that bad:

I hope he hasn't gotten into it with the Russian non-Mafia.

Positive side of this for him is that he will score even more poontang
since chicks have a weakness for bad boys.

He's already a bad boy - but chicks do like scars. ;-)

.

Actually, it just looks old. He's almost healed, but he had two black
eyes. Bad enough.

And looks all yellow around, must have been quite a sight couple days
after the fight.
