    Sixth-seeded Sebastian Fanselow of Germany beat Marcos Giron of Thousand Oaks in the Los Angeles area 6-4, 6-3 Thursday in the second round of the $25,000 Broadway Tennis Center Men's Futures in Burlingame.
   Giron, the 2014 NCAA singles champion from UCLA, won last week's $25,000 Berkeley Futures.
   Fanselow, a 24-year-old former Pepperdine All-American, reached the quarterfinals for the sixth consecutive tournament. He won two $10,000 tourneys in Southern California in three weeks last month.
   Fanselow, ranked a career-high No. 403, is scheduled to face top-seeded Ruben Bemelmans of Belgium today.
   Bemelmans, ranked No. 216 after reaching a career-high No. 84 last year in September, trounced Connor Farren from Hillsborough, near Burlingame in the San Francisco Bay Area, 6-0, 6-2.
   Wild card Andre Goransson, a Cal senior from Sweden, edged Jan Choinski of Germany 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-4. Goransson, the runner-up last week on his home courts, will meet unseeded American Mico Santiago.
   Here are the Burlingame singles and doubles draws and today's schedule.
