With a healed wrist and a new coach, Andre Agassi held off qualifier Cecil Mamiit, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-2, Tuesday in the first round of the Siebel Open. Wearing a white wristband, the second-seeded Agassi struggled against his first-round challenger. He broke Mamiit to go up, 6-5, in the first set, but the 25-year-old forced the tiebreaker--and then climbed back from a 5-2 deficit. Agassi regained his composure, easily taking the next two sets. Looking on was Agassi's new coach, Darren Cahill.

Top-seeded Andre Agassi beat Karol Kucera of Slovakia, 6-4, 6-4, and he may be coming out of the bullpen to try and help save the U.S. doubles entry. Richey Reneberg, who was scheduled to team with MaliVai Washington, aggravated a groin strain during first-round action Wednesday. He also was hospitalized for heat exhaustion. Team officials will make a decision about Agassi this morning.

Whatever the reason, the Goran Ivanisevic who lost to Guillaume Raoux in the Mercedes-Benz Cup at Los Angeles Tennis Center on Tuesday didn't look anything like the fierce competitor who finally fell in the Wimbledon final to Pete Sampras in five sets. "He didn't play like he did at Wimbledon, that's for sure," said the unseeded Raoux, who upset third-seeded Ivanisevic in the first round, 6-4, 6-4.

It was just a few weeks ago that Andre Agassi once again vowed to work his way back to the top of the tennis world. An injured right wrist and equally wounded confidence has precipitated Agassi's drop from No. 1 in 1996 to No. 141 in the rankings this year. After a first-round loss to Todd Martin at the Eurocard Open in Stuttgart, Germany, last month, Agassi promised to embark on a full fall schedule. For the people at the Burbank Tennis Center, that made for a big surprise.
