In the only battle among seeded players in the third round, French Open champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov, the No 4, defeated MaliVai Washington, the No 13, 6-4 6-3.Wayne Ferreira had become the 10th seed to go out when he lost 6-2, 6-4 to Sweden's Magnus Gustafsson.
The result means that Boris Becker, beaten by Spain's Carlos Moya in the second round on Wednesday, is assured of his place in the eight-man ATP Tour World Championship in Hanover next month, where he will defend the title.
Pete Sampras, Michael Chang, Goran Ivanisevic, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Thomas Muster and Agassi have already gained a spot for the end-of-year event, which starts on 19 November. Agassi's place was confirmed after the Wimbledon champion, Richard Krajicek, withdrew from next week's Stockholm event.
