SAFIN TUNES UP FOR OLYMPICS WITH WIN

U.S. Open champion Marat Safin won another title before heading to the Olympics, beating Italy's Davide Sanguinetti, 6-3, 6-4, Sunday to capture the President's Cup.

Safin, seeded second in the $500,000 tournament, will be the No. 1 player for Russia at the Sydney Games.

This was the sixth career title, and fifth this year, for the 20-year-old Russian. In April, he emerged from a slump that almost prompted him to quit tennis, winning in Barcelona, Mallorca and Toronto, before the U.S. Open.
