2019 champs Ram, Salisbury top singles stars in Vienna

   Doubles specialists Rajeev Ram, a volunteer assistant coach at the University of California, Berkeley, from Carmel, Ind., and Joe Salisbury of Great Britain opened their title defense in Vienna today against two singles stars.
   Ram and Salisbury, the reigning Australian Open champions, edged Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria and Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland 6-4, 3-6 [10-6] in the opening round of the indoor tournament.
   Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam singles champion, and Dimitrov, who has advanced to three major semifinals, reached a career-high No. 3 in singles in 2014 and 2017, respectively.
   Ram and Salisbury will play the British team of Jamie Murray, Andy's older brother, and Neal Skupski in the quarterfinals. Murray and Skupski topped Austrian wild cards Dennis Novak and Dominic Thiem, the defending singles champion and reigning U.S. Open winner, 7-5, 6-7 (1) [10-5].
   Salisbury and Skupski won the Vienna doubles title in 2018. Skupski played World TeamTennis for the California Dream, based in the Sacramento area, in 2015. 
   Both Ram and Jamie Murray earned doubles crowns in the SAP Open in San Jose, Calif., Ram with former Stanford All-American Scott Lipsky in 2011 and Murray with American Eric Butorac in 2007. Butorac played for the Sacramento Capitals in WTT in 2008.
   The SAP Open, Dream and Capitals have folded. 
   USTA Pro Circuit — Shelby Rogers, who reached her second Grand Slam quarterfinal last month in the U.S. Open, is seeded first in the $80,000 Bellatorum Resources Pro Classic in Tyler, Texas. 
   The singles main draw, which begins Wednesday, also features 28-year-old Stanford graduate Kristie Ahn, seeded fifth, and San Francisco Bay Area products CiCi Bellis, 21, and Katie Volynets, an 18-year-old wild card.
   Bellis, who climbed to a career-high No. 35 in 2017 before undergoing three operations on her right wrist and one on her right elbow, won last week's $80,000 Mercer Tennis Classic in Macon, Ga. 
   In the first round of Tyler qualifying, 15th-seeded Tessah Andrianjafitrimo of France nipped Allura Zamarripa, an 18-year-old wild card from Saint Helena, Calif., in the Napa area, 3-6, 6-0 [10-5]. 
   Zamarripa and her twin sister, Maribella, have verbally committed to the University of Texas in Austin in 2021.
