Andre Agassi will try to become the sixth player in ATP Tour history to reach 800 career wins Tuesday night in the first round of the Mercedes Benz Cup. The first U.S. hardcourt event of the summer began Monday with Jeff Morrison, Glenn Weiner, Kenneth Carlsen, Karol Beck and Gilles Elseneer winning first-round matches.

The top-seeded Agassi will face Alex Bogomolov Jr. in his first match since withdrawing from Wimbledon with a strained right hip. A three-time winner of the Mercedes-Benz Cup and former No. 1, Agassi went into his layoff after losing in the first round of three straight tournaments for the first time since 1997.
