Andre Agassi arrived earlier this week wanting to test himself both physically and mentally after eight weeks off. So far, he's passed every time. Agassi beat former top-10 player Paradorn Srichaphan 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 Friday in the Mercedes-Benz Cup quarterfinals. ``Today was a good step for me, to play against a guy that can hit the ball as well and as big as Paradorn,'' Agassi said.
