   Keenan Mayo of Roseville in the Sacramento area helped the United States finish seventh among 16 teams in last week's ITF World Junior Tennis Finals on clay in Prostejov, Czech Republic.
   Mayo, 14, went 2-0 in singles and 3-2 in doubles in the 14-and-under tournament. Ranked No. 1 nationally in the boys 14s, the 6-foot (1.83-meter) Mayo won the singles title in last month's USTA National Clay Court Champion- ships in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
   Also on the third-seeded U.S. boys team in the World Juniors were Roscoe Bellamy of Pacific Palisades, a suburb of Los Angeles, and Steven Sun from Glen Cove, N.Y., on Long Island in the New York area.
   Nations advanced by winning at least two of three matches (two singles and one doubles).
   Top-seeded Germany beat No. 2 Canada 2-1 for the boys title, and No. 6 Russia topped No. 2 Ukraine for the girls crown.
   The U.S. girls finished fifth with Rachel Lim of Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., Claire Liu of Thousand Oaks in the L.A. area and Elysia Bolton of Lake Forest, Ill.
