Toronto: Andre Agassi who made a late pull out from $2.95 ATP Masters Series in Toronto has been fined for not showing up. The organizers must be peeved because they have now also lost one of their biggest names on the first day. Top seed Lleyton Hewitt crashed out of the tournament following a 2-6, 6-4, 6-3 defeat to Felix Mantilla. Play was interrupted for a little over two hours with the Australian leading 6-2, 4-5. But 27-year-old Mantilla fought back to clinch the match. The defeat was Hewitt's first loss in 15 matches, his most recent previous defeat coming against Guillermo Canas in the fourth round at the French Open. Fellow Spaniard Fernando Vicente's however succumbed to fourth seed Tim Henman after losing in straight sets. (With PTI inputs)
