Ovrootsky, Keenan Mayo reach Eddie Herr finals

   Two Northern California juniors reached finals in the Eddie Herr International Championships.
   Vivian Ovrootsky of San Jose will play for the girls 14 singles title, and Keenan Mayo of Roseville in the Sacramento area will vie for the boys 18 doubles crown.
   The second-seeded Ovrootsky outclassed third-seeded Clarine Lerby of the Netherlands 6-4, 6-0 today on a hard court in Bradenton, Fla. Ovrootsky, ranked second nationally in the 14s, will meet fourth-seeded Linda Fruhvirtova of the Czech Republic. Fruhvirtova dominated top-seeded Hina Inoue, Ovrootsky's doubles partner from Los Gatos (near San Jose), 6-2, 6-0.
   Unseeded Adrian Andreev of Bulgaria and Mayo edged Ronan Jachuck of Boca Raton, Fla., and Sumit Sarkar of New York 6-3, 5-7 [12-10] on clay in Bradenton. Andreev and Mayo will play eighth-seeded Alan Fernando Rubio Fierros of Mexico and Dostanbek Tashbulatov of Kazakhstan. 6-4, 6-2 winners over third-seeded Tomas Machac and Ondrej Styler of the Czech Republic.
   Mayo's brother, third-seeded Aidan, lost to his doubles partner, top-seeded Alexander Bernard of Naples, Fla., 6-3, 6-1 in the boys 14 semifinals.
   In the boys 18 singles quarterfinals, top-seeded Timofey Skatov of Russia beat Stanford-bound Alexandre Rotsaert, seeded sixth from Boca Raton, 6-1, 7-5.
   Ovrootsky and Aidan Mayo lost heartbreakers in the doubles semifinals as the top seeds. Seventh-seeded Estefania Gonzalez of Plantation, Fla., and Lorelyz Marruffo of Venezuela nipped Inoue and Ovrootsky 7-5, 6-2 [13-11]. Unseeded Victor Lilov of Raleigh, N.C., and Evan Wen of Morristown, N.J., topped Bernard and Mayo 4-6, 6-2 [10-7].
