The Lawn Tennis Association hired Lundgren for the tie against Ukraine, which Britain won 3-2 to remain in Euro African Zone Group One, and the British game's governing body, after seeing how he worked here, are keen to retain his services.
But, Draper, who is also hoping to make key appointments this autumn, including the heads of men and women's tennis, is happy to invest heavily in the Davis Cup team as he believes the competition is one of the best ways to invigorate the sport in Britain.
Lundgren has been suggesting here he might be interested in a role such as head of men's tennis.
Lundgren, who coached world No. 1 Roger Federer until the Wimbledon winner dismissed him after claiming the Tennis Masters Cup last November, joined Safin in Estoril where the former No. 1 is playing in the Estoril Open.
Lundgren was on hand in Safin's box for that match and his hiring is a sensible selection for a player who is one of the game's most physically-gifted talents, but has been prone to periods of concentration lapses and mental meltdowns in the past.
Lundgren has worked with temperamental talents in the past — he worked with surly Chilean Marcelo Rios before hooking up with Federer — and becomes the second Swede to coach Safin.
