Andre Agassi celebrated his 1,000th professional match by beating Australian youngster Peter Luczak in the second round of the Stella Artois Championship in London on Tuesday.

The Australian Open champion then found his rhythm in the second set, winning the match with a backhand 7-6, 6-4. The 33-year-old says he's feeling good enough to go the distance at Wimbledon.

Thai star Paradorn Srichaphan became the first major seed to fall, losing 6-3, 6-3 to Croatian Mario Ancic.
