Agassi to face Bruguera in Atlanta Open exhibition

ATLANTA (AP) Andre Agassi will face Sergi Bruguera in an exhibition as part of the Atlanta Open on July 31, providing a rematch of the 1996 Olympics gold medal final in Atlanta.

The exhibition will be played as Atlanta marks the 20-year anniversary of the Olympics.

Agassi, who celebrated his 46th birthday on Friday, is an eight-time Grand Slam singles champion who defeated Spain's Bruguera for the 1996 gold medal. The 45-year-old Bruguera is a two-time French Open champion.

Agassi said the exhibition is a chance ''to re-live a special Olympic moment.''

John Isner will return as the three-time defending singles champion in the tournament.
