Andre Agassi came through a tricky third-round encounter against big-serving Taylor Dent to reach the last 16 of the Australian Open.
The in-form Dent, seeded 29, was always likely to give his fellow American a game and that proved the case under the lights of the Rod Laver Arena.
After dropping the first set, Dent had three set points in the second before losing it on a tie-break and Agassi went on to record a 7-5 7-6 (7/3) 6-1
