Sacramento academy bags another national title

   The JMG Tennis Academy is having a better year than Starbucks.
   A player from JMG in Sacramento won a national title for the third time since August earlier this month. Priya Nelson, 8, routed Susanna Maltby of Glen Ellyn, Ill., 6-2, 6-0 in the girls 8 final at the Little Mo Nationals in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 21.
   Nelson won all of her matches in straight sets.
   "Priya is both highly dedicated and highly talented, which is unique at her age," Joseph Gilbert, the founder and director of JMG, said in a statement. "I've been fortunate enough to coach her from the very beginning, and I just love catching talented young players early like that. It's easy to see Priya's headed for lots of future success, and it will be very exciting to watch her journey."
   On back-to-back days in August, JMG's Collin Altamirano and Jenson Brooksby won titles in the USTA Boys 18 and 12 National Championships, respectively. Altamirano, 17, became the first unseeded player in the 71-year history of the USTA Boys 18s to capture the title.
   Past Little Mo champions include Andy Roddick and Canada's Vasek Pospisil, who reached the semifinals of last week's Swiss Indoors in Basel. Pospisil lost to hometown hero Roger Federer 7-5 in the third set.
