Agassi Rolls to Second Toronto Title
Andre Agassi won his second Player’s Ltd. International tennis title Sunday by defeating Jason Stoltenberg, 6-4, 6-4, halting the Australian’s run of upsets.
The eighth-seeded Agassi used a consistent first serve and an impressive second serve to throw Stoltenberg off his net game.
“Going out there, I really felt Jason was going to really come at me and put a lot of pressure on me and try getting to the net,” Agassi, 24, said after collecting the $245,000 winner’s check. “More than anything, I was trying to get him to hit a lot of balls.”
Agassi was brilliant on his first serve, won six of eight second serves and saved all seven break points in the 80-minute match at the National Tennis Centre.
