From Staff and Wire Reports

With Stefan Edberg and Pete Sampras already out of the tournament, the withdrawal of Boris Becker from the Grand Slam Cup at Munich, Germany, because of a virus was another blow to the lucrative competition.

The tournament began as Ivan Lendl, Michael Chang and Patrick McEnroe won first-round matches. But Jimmy Connors was ousted after winning his first set without losing a game. Jakob Hlasek of Switzerland beat the 39-year-old Connors, 0-6, 6-4, 6-4.
