- Story Text: Defending champion Stefan Edberg advanced to the quarter-finals of the Legg-Mason Tournament in Washington, D.C. on Thursday (July 20).
Edberg, despite nursing a sore shoulder, had little trouble dismissing Paul Mekesa of Kenya 6-2 6-2. The Swede took advantage of Mekesa's low first serve percentage and repeatedly returned cross-court winners.
Edberg's quarter-final opponent will be Italy's Cristiano Coratti, who beat South African Grant Stafford 7-6 (8-6) 6-1.
Later in the day, top seed Andre Agassi had a comfortable 6-2 6-2 win over fellow American Michael Joyce. His quarter final opponent will be Mauricio Hadad of Colombia.
