   Sixth-seeded Jasmine Paolini of Italy drubbed Kristie Ahn, a 28-year-old Stanford graduate from Englewood Cliffs, N.J., 6-3, 6-0 in 59 minutes today in the first round of the Copa Colsanitas, a WTA 250 tournament on clay in Bogota, Colombia. 
   Two years ago in Bogota, 8,660 feet (2,640 meters) above sea level, Ahn ousted top seed and 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in the opening round as a qualifier. Ahn then lost to 17-year-old wild card Maria Camila Osorio Serrano of Colombia in the second round.
   Paolini reached the second round of the French Open last fall.
   Ahn also lost in the first round of doubles. Lara Arruabarrena of Spain and Katarzyna Piter of Poland defeated Ahn and compatriot Usue (pronounced OU-sway) Arconada 6-4, 2-6 [10-2].
