   Apparently, Keenan and Aidan Mayo like to stick together.
   Both brothers from Roseville in the Sacramento area reached the round of 16 in their respective age groups in the Junior Orange Bowl without losing a set.
   Then they survived three-setters to advance to the quarterfinals of the prestigious tournament in Coral Gables, Fla.
   And then they lost.
   Keenan, seeded third in the boys 14s, fell to unseeded Chen-jui Ho of Taiwan 6-3, 6-3 on Sunday. Aidan lost to fellow No. 9 seed Ross Weibull of Sweden 2-6, 6-1, 6-1 in the boys 12s.
   Keenan, 6-foot-2 (1.88 meters), is ranked No. 1 in the United States in the 14s. He won the USTA National Clay Court Championships in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in July.
   Aidan is ranked No. 3 nationally in the 12s.
   Both players train at the USTA center in Carson in the Los Angeles region.
