Another player has withdrawn from the SAP Open. Marat Safin's representative told tournament director Bill Rapp on Tuesday that he won't participate in next week's event in San Jose, meaning Pete Sampras needs another opponent for Monday's exhibition.
It'll be Germany's Tommy Haas, who also will be playing in the tournament's singles field.
Safin pulled out because of a stress fracture in his right leg, which forced him from Russia's Davis Cup competition against Serbia over the weekend. He also has stomach flu.
