   Two San Francisco Bay Area residents, one boy and one girl, won their first-round matches today in the Orange Bowl 16s on clay in Plantation, Fla.
   Kurt Miller of Los Gatos routed Humza Noor of Olathe, Kan., 6-0, 6-1, and Anushka Khune of Palo Alto topped Maddy Zampardo of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich.,  6-3, 5-7, 6-2.
   On Monday, Miller is scheduled to play 12th-seeded John Kim of Sunnyvale in the Bay Area, and Khune is set to meet 16th-seeded Salma Farhat of Bellevue, Wash. Kim and Farhat received first-round byes.
   In the final round of boys 18 qualifying, top-seeded Alvaro Guillen Meza of Ecuador edged Karl Lee of Sacramento, Calif., 6-7 (5), 7-5 [11-9]. The first round of the main draw is scheduled to begin Monday.   
   Fifteenth-seeded Aidan Mayo, who grew up in the Sacramento suburb of Roseville, drew a first-round bye in the boys 18s. Mayo, who reached last year's doubles final, could face top-seeded Peter Fajta of Hungary in the third round.
   Wild card Vivian Ovrootsky of San Jose, Calif., is set to play qualifier Katja Wiersholm of Kirkland, Wash., in the opening round of the girls 18s on Tuesday.
