Finals set in Sacramento Clay Court League

   Top-seeded Darrin Cohen and Eric Roberson will meet third-seeded Jeff Shin and Justin Garcia on Sunday at 1 p.m. in the open division final of the Sacramento Clay Court League.
   The match will follow the mixed doubles final at 9 a.m. and the 40+ doubles final at 11 a.m. All will be held at Ben Combs' house at 8582 Westin Lane in Orangevale.
   The public is invited free of charge, including a barbecue lunch. A tip jar will be available for the Sierra College women's tennis team, which will be present to help with the event. 
   In the 40+ doubles final, second-seeded Dave Hagiwara and Chris Evers will take on fourth-seeded Bryan Paveglio and Steve Scurfield.
   The open and 40+ semifinals were played last weekend. 
   In the mixed doubles final, top-seeded Yasmin Schnack and Roberson will face second-seeded Isabella Kling-Norton and Chris Gerety.
   Schnack and Roberson trounced Petra Abraham Wallace and Justin Coupe 6-0, 6-0 in today's semifinals, and Kling-Norton and Gerety dominated Laura McGaffigan and Brian Ishimoto.
   Schnack and Roberson won a national playoff to earn a wild card into the U.S. Open in August. They fell to Slovakians Janette Husarova and Filip Polasek 6-4, 7-6 (3) in the first round in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.
   Husarova has been ranked as high as third in the world in women's doubles and Polasek as high as No. 20 in men's doubles.
