Agassi Nets Canadian Open Title

TORONTO -- Andre Agassi won his second Canadian Open tennis title in a convincing 6-4, 6-4 decision over Australia's Jason Stoltenberg.


Agassi, the eighth seed, used a consistent first serve and an equally impressive second to throw his unseeded opponent off his net game Sunday.


"Going out there I really felt Jason was going to come at me and put a lot of pressure on me and try getting to the net," Agassi, 24, said after collecting his $245,000 winner's check. "More than anything, I was trying to get him to hit a lot of balls."


Agassi won 38 of his 52 first serves. He won six of eight second serves and saved all seven break points in the 80-minute match before about 9,000 fans.


Stoltenberg, 24, could not find the form he used in his semifinal win Saturday over American Jim Courier. He relied too heavily on his one-handed backhand and had difficulty getting to the net because of Agassi's strong baseline attack. "I felt I struggled a bit," said Stoltenberg, who earned $129,000, the biggest payday of his career.


U.S. Women's Hardcourt Championship. With a Wimbledon title now on her fact sheet, a more confident, more patient Conchita Martinez won the battleof Spain in the Vermont mountains Sunday.


She overcame countrywoman Arantxa Sanchez Vicario 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 Sunday to win the tournament in Stratton Mountain, Vermont in a confrontation between the WTA Tour's second- and third-ranked players.


Martinez's victory was the fourth of the year for the Wimbledon champion in this hardcourt tuneup for next month's U.S. Open.


Sanchez Vicario, who also has four victories this year, is the leading money winner. She won $36,000 and now has pocketed $1,163,000.


Dutch Open. In Hilversum, Holland, Czech Karel Novacek's superior all-around tennis gave him a 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 (9-7) win over Australian Richard Fromberg on Sunday, and the $39,600 first prize in the Dutch Open clay court championships.


"I was the one who played the smartest game against Richard," said Novacek after the match.


The pair had similar styles, both predominately staying on the baseline and relying on big serves and big forehands.
