Agassi Feels Heat

STONE MOUNTAIN, Georgia () -- It was a breeze in the heat for Monica Seles. But the men's top seed Andre Agassi struggled and had to rely on two tiebreakers before advancing in the Olympic tennis tournament Tuesday.


U.S. star Seles, the women's top seed, allowed Li Chen of China only four games in a 6-0, 6-4 drubbing. Agassi needed two tiebreakers to edge Swede Jonas Bjorkman 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5).


Agassi arrived at the Olympics in a slump, losing four of his past seven matches, and his world ranking has slipped to sixth. He showed frustration at times against Bjorkman, drawing a code violation from the umpire for cursing.


Seles, who was born in Yugoslavia and became a U.S. citizen in 1994. The crowd gave her a standing ovation after she completed the victory in 59 minutes.
