PARIS (AP) — Andre Agassi left the French Open in a hurry.
His game undermined by impatience, unforced errors and double faults, Agassi lost in the second round to journeyman Chris Woodruff. Then, the third-seeded American didn’t bother with any explanations.
After his 4-6, 64, 6-7 (9-7), 6-3, 6-2 defeat, Agassi walked off, got into into his chauffeur-driven car and rode off with fiancee Brooke Shields.
It was the second time in three years Agassi was dumped in the second round. The last time, in 1993, Thomas Muster, now this event’s defending champion, ousted him, and Agassi was philosophical about his five-set loss.
This time he was so devastated he literally ran

Rom staff and submitted reports
Muerin scored two runs to add to die attack.
Buddy DiFonzo paced the Breves with two hits. Greg Williams and Tyler Holmig singled and scored in the final
Josef Antosh came on for the Astros and notched five strike outs in the final two innings to earn die save.
The outcome was closer for the Cardinals. Pitchers Wes Clade and Jenry Fellers combined for a one-hitter to hold off the Royals and a gutsy performance by pitcher Bradley Marshall who went seven complete innings and struck out five batters. Erie Garrett got the Royals’ only hit.
Shortstop Cody Reinter, third baseman Jerod Campbell and Fellers each scored twice to pace the Cardinals’ attack. Royals second baseman Matt Wilkinson turned in the game’s defensive gem when Cardinal batter Jerod Campbell hit a slow roller to Marshall at the mound.
Backing up first base, Wilkinson snagged a high overthrow to first base and tagged out Campbell who was on his way to second.
A four-inning pitching duel quickly turned into a scoring barrage between the Astros and Braves in the New Braunfels Sr. League.
Ultimately, the Astros had more offensive fire, scoring seven runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to emerge with an 84 win on Wednesday night at Comal Park Fields.
The Astros-Braves clash was one of two games in the NB Sr. League which resumed play for first time since the Memorial Day break. In the second game, the Cardinals topped the Royals in a 10-7 thriller.
The Astros (5-0) kept their perfect record intact thanks in large part to pitcher Clifton Fischer who struck out six batters and gave up one run in five innings.
Braves pitcher Kevin Hull was equally impressive, matching Fischer for four innings and holding the Astros to a 1-0 lead.
Then the scoring erupted.
Astros outfielder Erie Peock led the way, going 4-for4 at the plate. Jonathan
