   Collin Altamirano was heading toward his fourth career Challenger quarterfinal.
   Then misfortune struck.
   The Sacramento native and resident twisted his left ankle and retired after losing the first set to Aleksandar Vukic of Australia 7-6 (3) today on green clay in the $54,160 Savannah (Ga.) Challenger.
   Altamirano led 5-2 with two service breaks, but Vukic fought back to 4-5 in the first meeting between the 23-year-old, 6-foot-2 (1.88-meter) right-handers. With Altamirano serving for the set at deuce, he hurt his ankle running up to retrieve a sharply angled inside-out forehand.
   Altamirano hopped on his right leg to his chair and took the first of three medical timeouts. On the next point, he slugged an inside-out forehand wide for 5-5.
   Both players then held serve, despite Altamirano delivering at half-speed, to send the set to a tiebreaker, in which Vukic won the last four points.
   Altamirano broke through in the $75,000 Winnetka (Ill.) Challenger last July, reaching the semifinals as a qualifier. He advanced to the quarters in his next tournament, retiring at 2-3 in the third set against Joris De Loore of Belgium in the $75,000 Lexington (Ky.) Challenger, and in the $162,480 Newport Beach (Calif.) Challenger in January.
   Donaldson surgery -- Jared Donaldson, the runner-up in the 2015 Sacramento Challenger, underwent right knee surgery at Stanford University Medical Center on Tuesday.
   Donaldson, 22, reached the third round of the 2016 U.S. Open as a qualifier, stunning then-No. 14 David Goffin of Belgium in the first round, and attained a career-high ranking of No. 48 in March 2018.
