Agassi second win at Delray Beach

Delray Beach, FL (Sports Network) - Top-seeded Andre Agassi and defending champion Xavier Malisse each came away victorious in second-round action at the $380,000 Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

Agassi had to survive three sets to down Ramon Delgado, 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-0, at Delray Beach Tennis Center & Stadium. The American led the first set 4-2 before losing four straight games and finding himself behind in just his second match of the season.

He rallied, however, to outlast Delgado in the second-set tiebreaker and put away the 29-year-old from Paraguay in the third rather easily. The match lasted nearly two hours, going one hour, 58 minutes.

Agassi improved to 4-0 lifetime against Delgado.

The third-seeded Malisse needed just two sets to dispose of American Justin Gimelstob, 6-2, 7-5. The Belgian was pushed to the limit in the second set, needing a break on the final game to come away with the victory.

Malisse will next face Sixth-seeded German Florian Mayer, who handled Austrian Oliver Marach 7-5, 6-3.

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez has the honor of facing Agassi in the quarterfinal round. The Spaniard easily defeated American Todd Widom, 6-3, 6-2, uncorking 11 aces in his win.

The winner of this hard-court event will pocket $52,000.
