Altamirano gains quarterfinals in Claremont Futures

   Collin Altamirano of Sacramento defeated qualifier Martin Redlicki of Boca Raton, Fla., 6-4, 3-6, 6-0 on Thursday to reach the quarterfinals of the $10,000 Claremont USTA Pro Classic in Claremont, Calif.
   Altamirano, a sophomore at reigning NCAA champion Virginia, ousted top-seeded Marcos Giron in the first round. Giron, 22, of Thousand Oaks, Calif., turned pro last year after winning the NCAA singles title as a UCLA junior.
   Altamirano will face fifth-seeded Daniel Garza, a 30-year-old Mexican who beat qualifier Junior Ore 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 to reach the quarters for the second consecutive year.
   Redlicki, 6-foot-5 (1.96 meters), is a sophomore at UCLA. His teammate, junior Mackenzie McDonald of Piedmont in the San Francisco Bay Area, topped Hunter Nicholas 7-5, 7-5.
   McDonald will meet qualifier Tom Fawcett, a Stanford sophomore who knocked off third-seeded Jean-Yves Aubone of the United States, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. Aubone reached the semifinals last year.
   David Wilczynski, another Stanford sophomore, lost to fourth-seeded Ernesto Escobedo of the United States 6-3, 6-1.
