Miller saves match point, wins NorCal Junior title

   SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Saving a match point, top-seeded Alaina Miller of Saratoga edged second-seeded Rachel Chong of Danville 4-6, 6-1, 7-6 (6) today for the girls 18 singles title in the NorCal Junior Excellence tournament at the Rio Del Oro Racquet Club.
   Miller double-faulted to trail 6-5 in the tiebreaker. But the 15-year-old, who slugs the ball with two fists on both sides, pulled even with an inside-out forehand after a long rally.
   Miller, ranked fifth nationally in the 16s, won the next point with another inside-out forehand and closed out the match when Chong, 17, netted a forehand return of a soft first serve.
   Fourth-seeded Adrian Chamdani of Santa Clara won the boys 18 singles title when unseeded Andrew Gu of El Cerrito retired with a sore elbow while trailing 6-3, 4-1.
   Gu was coming off a long 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 victory over second-seeded Cameron Klinger of Elk Grove on Saturday.
   It was the third injury-related victory of the tournament for Chamdani, a hard hitter with a sensational one-handed backhand. Riley Scott of Salinas retired while trailing 6-3, 4-2 in the second round, and top-seeded J.T. Nishimura of San Jose defaulted in the semifinals with a back problem. Nishimura is headed to Cal in the fall.
   In addition to Klinger, Gu knocked off the No. 3 and No. 5 seeds. A win over Chamdani would have made it No. 2, No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 for Gu, who has verbally committed to Santa Clara.
   Please see below for results of the singles and doubles finals in all age groups.
   USTA 30 Indoors -- Top-seeded Clayton Almeida of West Palm Beach, Fla., outlasted unseeded Brett Van Linge of San Luis Obispo 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the men's singles final of the USTA National Men's, Women's & Mixed 30 Indoor Championships at the Spare Time Indoor Tennis Center in the Sacramento suburb of Gold River.
   Almeida, 33, will play second-seeded Jan Tiilikainen of Reno for the title on Monday at 9 a.m. Tiilikainen, a four-time champion at 42, dominated third-seeded Michael Kwong of Woodland 6-1, 6-2.
   Heather Nobler of Lincoln, Neb., improved to 2-0 in women's round-robin singles with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Amy McCampbell (0-2) of Austin, Texas. In the other match, Marisue Jacutin-Mariona of Los Altos (1-1) defeated Petra Wallace (1-1) of Sacramento 6-3, 6-1.
