   Five weeks before turning 18, CiCi Bellis is on the verge of cracking the top 50 in the world.
   Bellis, who grew up in Atherton in the San Francisco Bay Area and now is based in Orlando, Fla., jumped 14 places to No. 56 by reaching the quarterfinals of last week's Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
   She ousted sixth-ranked Agnieszka Radwanska in the third round for her first victory over a top-10 player before losing to former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki.
   Bellis is by far the youngest player in the top 100. Next is No. 33 Ana Konjuh, a Croat who turned 19 on Dec. 27.
