   In a matchup of former tournament champions, sixth-seeded Jeff Greenwald of San Anselmo beat third-seeded Jeff Tarango of Manhattan Beach 6-4, 6-1 on Friday in the quarterfinals of the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships in the San Diego suburb of La Jolla.
   Greenwald won the title in 2009 and Tarango, a former Stanford All-American, triumphed the following year. Tarango climbed to No. 42 in the world in singles in 1992 and No. 10 in doubles in 1999.
   In today's semifinals, Greenwald will play top-seeded Oren Motevassel of San Jose, and second-seeded Tony Bujan of Tustin will meet fifth-seeded Michael Chang -- no, not that Michael Chang -- of Anaheim.
   Motevassel, a native of Israel who reached No. 161 in the world in 1997, won the National 40 Hard Court title in 2011 and 2012. Bujan is the defending champion.
