Flamboyant New Yorker James Blake came through a tough test against Sargis Sargsian at Flushing Meadows.


Blake, who is unseeded at the event, prevailed in four tough sets against the dangerous Armenian.

Blake was into his stride from the outset and took the opening two sets with relative ease.

Yet Sargsian came roaring back to win the next 6-4, and looked to have finally found his range in the fourth.

The pair produced some fabulous exchanges to entertain the largely pro-Blake New York crowd, but could not be separated as the set moved into a tie-break.

Still the pair traded shots and points at will before Blake broke crucially at 6-6 and eventually closed out 6-3 6-4 4-6 7-6 (8-6).

Andre Agassi overpowered Andreas Vinciguerra of Sweden to move into the third round of the US Open at Flushing Meadows with a 7-6 (7/1) 6-1 6-4 victory.

While many of his peers are retiring, Agassi, the 2003 Australian Open champion, hardly seems to be slowing down as he aims for a ninth Grand Slam title, including a third here.

The 33-year-old top seed, playing in his 17th consecutive US Open, needed just one hour 53 minutes to defeat the 22-year-old left-hander after taking only 86 minutes to beat Spain's Alex Corretja on Monday.

The inclement weather put top seed Andre Agassi, who faces fellow American Taylor Dent, in a poor position.

Agassi's third-round match with Yevgeny Kafelnikov started on Saturday but was postponed by rain to Sunday, when he completed a 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 6-4 victory.

Agassi, who has yet to drop a set in three matches, was to play on consecutive days but now gets a day off since his meeting with Dent was postponed until Tuesday.

The battle between fifth seed Guillermo Coria of Argentina and Sweden's Jonas Bjorkman, with the winner playing Agassi or Dent, also was postponed, as were the other men's fourth-round matches.

On Tuesday, sixth seed Lleyton Hewitt of Australian will face 11th seed Paradorn Srichaphan of Thailand, who is playing well and won the tune-up event on Long Island.

Hewitt, the 2001 champion, has reached the semi-finals each of the last three years.

Justine Henin-Hardenne beat Kim Clijsters in a one-sided US Open final to claim her second Grand Slam title of the year.

Henin-Hardenne, who already had the French Open crown in the bag, triumphed 7-5 6-1 and was a comprehensive winner on the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Once again, world number one Clijsters failed on the big stage, producing too many errors throughout the match.

With Henin-Hardenne having endured a three-hour semi-final against Jennifer Capriati on Friday night - a match that ended with her being put on a drip due to dehydration - Clijsters began as the favourite but could not cope with Henin-Hardenne's accuracy.
