   Bradley Klahn is tearing up the Challenger circuit.
   The 2012 Stanford graduate won last week's $50,000 Adelaide (Australia) International for his second straight Challenger title and third in his last four tournaments at that level. He is 18-1 in Challenger singles matches dating to last November.
   With the Adelaide crown, Klahn improved 13 places in the world rankings to a career-high No. 67. The 23-year-old left-hander from Poway in the San Diego area now ranks third among Americans behind No. 13 John Isner and No. 56 Sam Querrey.
   Another 23-year-old former Stanford star, Mallory Burdette, had a rough week. The Jackson, Ga., resident fell 25 notches to No. 165 in women's singles and 448 spots to No. 1,142 in doubles.
