  Andre Agassi returns a ball against Yevgeny Kafelnikov on the way to his sixth Grand Slam title. AP

Smoldering start, fiery finish

Agassi downs Kafelnikov to win second Australian title

Andre Agassi won his third title in four Grand Slams with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 victory over defending Australian champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov on Sunday. The Russian jumped out to a 4-0 lead on the way to winning the first set, but after that it was all Agassi as he beat Kafelnikov for the fourth straight time. Coupled with Lindsay Davenport's 6-1, 7-5 victory over Martina Hingis on Saturday, Americans have now swept the past three Grand Slams singles finals.
