Britain's Tim Henman became the latest high profile casualty at the Euros 2.1-million Masters Series event in Rome on Thursday. The number four seed went down 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 to Dominik Hrbaty of Slovakia. However, former world number one Andre Agassi overcame the in-form Croatian Ivan Ljubicic 7-6, 6-3 to progress into the quarterfinals. Also to move into the quarters was Guillermo Coria of Argentina. The French Open runner-up disposed of home favourite Davide Sanguinetti 6-0, 6-4 in just 77 minutes. Coria set up a possible clash with top seed Andy Roddick in the last eight, while Hrbaty's reward is a showdown with Agassi for a place in the semis. (AP)
