Mayo falls in Int'l Teen singles, gains doubles final

   Keenan Mayo of Roseville in the Sacramento area lost in the singles quarterfinals but won in the doubles semifinals today in the Nike Junior International Teen Tennis boys 14s in Bolton, England.
   Fourth-seeded Felix Auger Aliassime of Canada topped the unseeded Mayo 0-6, 6-3, 6-4, but Mayo avenged the loss in doubles. Fourth-seeded Roscoe Bellamy, from Pacific Palisades in the Los Angeles area, and Mayo nipped second-seeded Auger Aliassime and countryman Nicaise Muamba 6-7 (4), 6-4 [10-7].
   Bellamy and Mayo will play third-seeded Nicola Kuhn of Germany and Carlos Sanchez Jover of Spain for the title. Kuhn and Sanchez Jover edged sixth-seeded Andrew Fenty and Axel Nefve, both Americans, 6-1, 1-6 [10-7].
   Mayo won the boys 12 singles title in the 2012 USTA National Winter Championships in Tucson, Ariz., and ended the year ranked No. 1 nationally in the division.
