Stanford-bound Rotsaert gains Eddie Herr quarters

   The Stanford men already have the top junior in the world, Axel Geller.
   Another top recruit will join the Cardinal next year as fourth-year coach Paul Goldstein continues to rebuild the traditional power.
   Sixth-seeded Alexandre Rotsaert of Boca Raton, Fla., reached the quarterfinals of the prestigious Eddie Herr International Championships with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over 12th-seeded Carlos Lopez Montagud of Spain today.
   Rotsaert, ranked 10th nationally in the 18s, will face top-seeded Timofey Skatov of Russia in the clay-court tournament in Bradenton, Fla. Skatov eliminated 16th-seeded Filip Cristian Jianu of Romania 7-5, 6-1.
   Two Northern Californians, meanwhile, advanced to the semifinals in the boys and girls 14s, respectively, on hard courts in Bradenton.
   No. 3 seed Aidan Mayo of Roseville in the Sacramento area outplayed No. 7 Joel Pierleoni of Great Britain 6-4, 6-2, and No. 2 Vivian Ovrootsky of San Jose beat Kyoka Kubo of Japan 7-6 (2), 6-3. Ovrootsky is ranked second nationally in the 14s.
