The former world number one Marat Safin says he's considering his future in tennis after his first round loss at the Paris Masters.

The 28-year-old Russian lost 6-0, 7-6 to the Argentine qualifier Juan Monaco and says he needs to enjoy his life without tennis as the last three years have been too intense.
