Ex-Fresno St. star gains main draw, earns doubles upset

   Maiar Sherif Ahmed Abdelaziz didn't have a bad day.
   The 24-year-old Egyptian and former Fresno State All-American advanced to the singles main draw in the $100,000 LTP Tennis on clay in Charleston, S.C., and teamed with Astra Sharma of Australia to knock off the No. 2 seeds in the first round of doubles.
   Sherif Ahmed Abdelaziz, seeded third in singles qualifying, beat 15th-seeded Harmony Tan of France 6-2, 1-6 [10-2] today to earn a matchup against Kristina Kucova, 30, of Slovakia on Wednesday. Kucova won a $125,000 clay-court tournament in Prague in early September.
   Sherif Ahmed Abdelaziz and Sharma, a 25-year-old former Vanderbilt All-American, ousted second-seeded Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany and Georgina Garcia-Perez of Spain 6-4, 6-4. 
   Sherif Ahmed Abdelaziz reached the NCAA doubles quarterfinals in 2016 as a Fresno State sophomore with her sister, Rana, before transferring to Pepperdine and advancing to the NCAA singles semifinals in 2018 as a senior.
   In another first-round singles match on Wednesday, CiCi Bellis, a 21-year-old wild card who was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, is scheduled to face fifth-seeded Aliona Bolsova Zadoinov, a 22-year-old Spanish citizen from Moldova, for the second consecutive week at 7 a.m. PST. 
   Bellis topped Bolsova Zadoinov 6-0, 2-6, 7-5 on Friday in the quarterfinals of the $80,000 Bellatorum Resources Pro Classic on hardcourts in Tyler, Texas.
   Sixth-seeded Kristie Ahn, a 28-year-old Stanford graduate, is scheduled to meet fellow American Caroline Dolehide at about 11 a.m.
   LTP matches will be streamed live
   ATP TourTaylor Fritz of Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., in the Los Angeles area and Casper Ruud of Norway defeated Raven Klaasen of South Africa and Ben McLachlan (University of California, Berkeley, 2011-14) of Japan 6-7 (5), 6-1 [10-5] in the first round of the Rolex Paris Masters.
   The Paris Masters is one of nine ATP 1000 tournaments, the highest level besides the Grand Slams.
   Third-seeded Rajeev Ram, a volunteer assistant coach at Cal from Carmel, Ind., and Joe Salisbury of Great Britain withdrew because of Salisbury's undisclosed injury or illness.
   Klaasen, 38, and McLachlan, a 28-year-old New Zealand product who plays for his mother's native country, won the Cologne title two weeks ago in their only other tournament together.
   Fritz, 23, captured his first two professional singles titles back-to-back in Northern California Challengers in Sacramento and Fairfield at 17 in 2015.
   Ruud, the 21-year-old son of former top-40 player Christian Ruud, reached the singles semifinals of the 2018 Fairfield Challenger at 19.
