NorCal men fall in USTA National 40 semifinals

   Both Northern California men lost today in the semifinals of the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships in the San Diego suburb of La Jolla.
   No. 3 seed Oren Motevassel of San Jose fell to No. 1 Tony Bujan, the two-time defending champion from Tustin, 6-3, 6-4. No. 9 David Smith of San Francisco bowed out against No. 4 Marcio Carlsson of Florianopolis, Brazil, 6-2, 6-1.
   Carlsson, 40, has lost only four games in five matches. He reached No. 119 in the world in 1998.
   Bujan, a 45-year-old teaching pro in Orange County, was a three-time All-American at TCU in the early 1990s.
   Motevassel, 48, won the title in 2011 and 2012. He climbed to a career-high No. 161 in 1997.
