New York:

In men's second round action, Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan cruised into the next round beating American Paul Goldstein 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-0. Srichaphan, the No 15 seed, hit 47 winners to Goldstein's 16 en route to the straight set victory. He will next play No 22 seed Dominik Hrbaty, who beat Slovak compatriot Karol Kucera in five-sets. In the last daylight match on Arthur Ashe court, two-time US Open champ Andre Agassi held a 7-5, 2-6, 6-2, 1-0 advantage over Florian Mayer when the German retired with an apparent left thigh injury. The 34-year-old Agassi - the oldest player in the draw - had not played since Monday night's straight-set triumph over fellow American Robby Ginepri. Agassi, the No 6 seed at Flushing Meadows, is gunning for his ninth major title.
