Andre Agassi saved the U.S. Davis Cup team from an embarrassing collapse. His Czechoslovak opponent fell apart instead.Agassi beat Karel Novacek, 7-6 (7-5), 6-0, 6-0, giving the Americans a shaky 3-2 quarterfinal victory yesterday at the PTC Sonesta Sanibel Harbour Resort in Fort Myers, Fla.Before Agassi won, the U.S. team was in danger of blowing a 2-0 lead for the first time since 1960. The Czechoslovaks upset John McEnroe and Rick Leach in doubles Saturday, then drew even in yesterday's first singles match when Petr Korda beat Pete Sampras in four sets.
