Spadea drops Greul in Delray Beach opener

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Eighth-seeded Vince Spadea beat Simon
Greul 6-2, 7-5 on Monday night in round-robin play in the Delray
Beach International.

Spadea, who grew up less than a half-hour away in Boca Raton,
entertained a sparse crowd that braved mid-50s temperatures.

Fourth-seeded Benjamin Becker, the German player who handed
Andre Agassi his last career loss in the U.S. Open last September,
edged Kevin Kim 7-6 (7-4), 6-3.
