Mayo reaches boys 12 semis in Winter Nationals

   Top-seeded Aidan Mayo of Roseville in the Sacramento area wore down ninth-seeded Vikas Deo of Carrollton, Texas, 7-5, 6-1 today to reach the boys 12 semifinals at the USTA National Winter Championships in Tucson, Ariz.
   Mayo, who trains at the USTA center in Carson, will meet fourth-seeded Niroop Vallabhaneni of Paradise Valley, Ariz. Vallabhaneni routed sixth-seeded Sam Feldman of Brookline, Mass., 6-0, 6-2.
   Mayo's doubles semifinal was postponed by rain. Top-seeded Mayo and Billy Suarez of Huntington, N.Y., are scheduled to play fourth-seeded Hugo Hashimoto of San Jose and Alex Lin of Granite Bay.
   In the girls 14s quarterfinals, sixth-seeded Katie Volynets of Walnut Creek lost to ninth-seeded Chelsea Kung of Fort Worth, Texas, 2-6, 6-3, 6-1.
   Volynets won the USTA Girls 12 National Championships in Alpharetta, Ga., in August, and Mayo took the boys 12 consolation title in last week's Junior Orange Bowl in Coral Gables, Fla.
   In Scottsdale, Ariz., the boys 16 quarterfinal between 17th-seeded Austen Huang of Elk Grove and fourth-seeded Timothy Sah of San Diego was postponed by rain.
