   This time, it was even more one-sided.
   In a rematch of Sunday's girls 16 final in the Eddie Herr International Championships, Katie Volynets of Walnut Creek in the San Francisco Bay Area routed 13th-seeded Victoria Hu of Boca Raton, Fla., 6-1, 6-2 in the second round of the 16s in the Orange Bowl on clay in Plantation, Fla.
   Volynets defeated Hu 6-3, 6-2 in the Eddie Herr tournament on hardcourts in Bradenton, Fla.
   Also advancing to the round of 16 in the Orange Bowl was Niluka Madurawe of Sunnyvale in the Bay Area. Madurawe beat Ava Hrastar of Duluth, Ga., 7-5, 6-4.
   Volynets, who will turn 15 on Dec. 31, will face second-seeded Oana Corneanu of Romania. Madurawe will play Lauren Stein of Paradise Valley, Ariz. Stein reached the singles quarterfinals and doubles semifinals (with Volynets) in the Eddie Herr.
   Volynets also moved into the doubles quarterfinals of the Orange Bowl with Melissa Sakar of Lauderdale Lakes, Fla. Madurawe and Chelsea Kung of Fort Worth, Texas, lost to Anna Brylin of Short Hills, N.J., and Amber O'Dell of New Milford, N.J., 7-6 (11), 4-6 [10-7].
   Meanwhile, third-seeded Anton Matusevich of Great Britain upended Jenson Brooksby of Carmichael in the Sacramento area 6-3, 6-3 in the second round of the boys 16s. Matusevich won the Eddie Herr 16s.
   In the first round of boys 18 doubles, Caleb Chakravarthi of Irvine and Keenan Mayo of Roseville in the Sacramento region lost to second-seeded Juan Aguilar of Bolivia and Yibing Wu of China 6-4, 3-6 [10-8].
   Roseville's Sam Riffice, seeded 13th in boys 18 singles, is scheduled to meet Alan Fernando Rubio Fierros of Mexico in the second round on Wednesday.
