   Six weeks after turning pro, CiCi Bellis is on the verge of cracking the top 100 in the world.
   Bellis, a 17-year-old product of Atherton in the San Francisco Bay Area, jumped 10 places to a career-high No. 101 by winning last week's $50,000 indoor tournament in Saguenay, Quebec.
   The top-seeded Bellis defeated Bianca Andreescu, a 16-year-old Canadian, 6-4, 6-2 for her fifth singles title in a professional tournament and second this year. All of Bellis' previous singles crowns came in $25,000 events in the United States.
   Bellis did not lose a set in four matches in Saguenay. She won by walkover in the semifinals against fourth-seeded Sachia Vickery of Miramar, Fla.
   Andreescu has rebounded strongly after missing six months this year with a stress fracture in her foot. She won her first professional title in a $25,000 tournament in Gatineau, Quebec, in August and reached the girls semifinals at the U.S. Open in September.
