   Stanford's Carol Zhao earned the top spot in the NCAA Division I preseason rankings, announced last week.
   Zhao, a 5-foot-5 (1.65-meter) junior from Canada, reached the NCAA singles final in May in Waco, Texas. She lost to North Carolina sophomore Jamie Loeb, who then turned pro.
   Cal's Maegan Manasse, a junior from Redondo Beach in the Los Angeles region, is ranked fourth, and USC's Giuliana Olmos, a senior from Fremont in the San Francisco Bay Area, is 10th.
   Manasse and Denise Starr, a junior from Brooklyn, N.Y., are rated third in doubles.
   On the men's side, UCLA junior Mackenzie McDonald of Piedmont in the Bay Area, is ranked third in singles and sixth in doubles with Martin Redlicki.
   Collin Altamirano, a sophomore at NCAA champion Virginia from Sacramento, is 27th in singles. 
   The next NCAA rankings will be released on Jan. 5.
   The inaugural ITA/Oracle Masters in Malibu, Calif., highlighted the opening of the fall season last weekend.
   The Masters men's and women's singles titles went to Cameron Norrie of Texas Christian and Danielle Collins of Virginia, respectively. Zhao did not play in the tournament.
   USC's Giuliana Olmos, a senior from Fremont in the Bay Area, and Gabby Smith captured the Masters women's doubles title, and Virginia's Luca Corinteli and Ryan Shane took the men's doubles crown.
   The next big tournament is the All-American Championships. The women's event is scheduled for Oct. 8-11 in Pacific Palisades, Calif., and the men's is set for Oct. 8-12 in Tulsa, Okla.
