The Stockholm Open is underway, with one Swede advancing, one Swede knocked out and six more waiting for their chance to strut their stuff. 

Ervin Eleskovic was soundly defeated by Denmark’s Kenneth Carlsen 6-0, 6-1, while former Australian Open Champ Thomas Johansson had to fight mightily to defeat Xavier Malisse of Belgium 7-6, 7-6. 

Other winners on Monday:  Jan-Michael Gambill of the United States, Andrei Pavel of Romania and Spain’s Fernando Verdasco. 

And Stockholm tennis fans are awaiting the appearance of Andre Agassi, who is the number one seed ahead of fan favorite Joachim Johansson. 

Agassi, who is on a quest to grab a spot in next month’s eight man Master’s Cup, arrived in Stockholm today.  He hasn’t played the Open since 1994, and fans here are salivating over the chance to see this legendary player in action.
