Tarango breezes in USTA 40 Hard Courts

   Jeff Tarango finally got on the court in the USTA National Men's and Women's 40 Hard Court Championships.
   The former Stanford All-American and ex-touring professional routed Mark Bonfigli of Burlington, Vt., 6-1, 6-0 Tuesday in the third round in La Jolla. Tarango, 43, of Manhattan Beach had received a bye in the first round and walkover in the second round. 
   Also advancing to the round of 16 were second-seeded Oren Motevassel of Sunnyvale, third-seeded Jeff Greenwald of Corte Madera, eighth-seeded Curtis Dunn of San Francisco and unseeded John  Saviano of Los Altos Hills.
   Northern California's two representatives in women's singles, both unseeded, lost badly to seeds in the second round. Nicole Samuel of Tiburon was blanked by No. 3 Amy Alcini of Malibu 6-0, 6-0, and Kim Boyden of Corte Madera fell to No. 4 Kim-Trang Nguyen of Santa Ana 6-2, 6-0.
   In men's doubles, eighth-seeded Karl Gifford of Alpharetta, Ga., and Motevassel reached the second round, but Dave Kuhn of Elk Grove and Alex Levie of Solana Beach lost to Andrew Chase of Sherman Oaks and Brian Joelson of Beaverton, Ore., 6-1, 6-3.
