Unseeded Fils beats top seed for Orange boys 18 title

   Unseeded Arthur Fils of France surprised top-seeded Peter Fajta of Hungary 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 today to win the boys 18 title in the Orange Bowl on clay in Plantation, Fla.
   Fajta had needed more than 2 1/2 hours to subdue another unseeded French 16-year-old, Luca Van Assche, in the semifinals, while Fils had breezed past 12th-seeded Juncheng Shang of China.
   In the girls 18 final, wild card Ashlyn Krueger of Highland Village, Texas, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area beat seventh-seeded Jana Kolodynska of Belarus 6-4, 6-4. 
   Last year, Krueger won the 16s, and Kolodynska fell to Robin Montgomery of Washington, D.C., in the 18s final.
