Use "Dimension" layer and draw straight line, then use Arc function to draw circular section to connect with previously drawn straight line.

Another alternative is to draw what you want in a CAD program.  Save as DXF, and then use the import-dxf ulp to import into EAGLE dimension layer.

While a circle with a flat edge is not complicated, for more complicated shapes I fine the above process easier.
