   Katie Volynets, a 16-year-old amateur from Walnut Creek in the San Francisco Bay Area, upset another former collegiate All-American today for her first victory in the main draw of a professional tournament.
   Volynets, a 5-foot-6 (1.68-meter) qualifier playing in her fourth pro tourney, dismissed Anna Danilina, a 23-year-old Moscow native who plays for Kazakhstan, 6-2, 6-3 in the first round of the $25,000 McLeod for Health Florence (S.C.) Open on hardcourts.
   Danilina, 5-foot-10 (1.79 meters), reached the quarterfinals of the 2017 and 2018 NCAA Division I Singles Championships in her last two years at Florida.
   Volynets ousted Dutchwoman Arianne Hartono, this year's NCAA singles champion as a senior at Mississippi, on Tuesday in the final round of qualifying.
   Volynets is scheduled to play Emina Bektas, a 25-year-old wild card from Indianapolis, on Thursday. Bektas, a former Michigan All-American, eliminated top-seeded Kristie Ahn, a 26-year-old Stanford graduate, 7-5, 2-3, retired on Tuesday.
