Gordon falls twice in Spring International juniors

   Michaela Gordon endured a rough day.
   The 15-year-old resident of Saratoga, near San Jose, lost in the girls 18 singles semifinals and doubles final on Saturday at the USTA International Spring Championships in Carson.
    Gordon, seeded third in singles, fell to second-seeded Sofia Kenin, 16, of Pembroke Pines, Fla., 6-2, 6-3. Kenin, the 22nd-ranked junior in the world and Orange Bowl girls 18 champion last December, evened her record against Gordon, ranked 29th, at 1-1.
   The fourth-seeded pair of Gordon and Raquel Pedraza of Claremont then lost to unseeded Caroline Dolehide of Hinsdale, Ill., and Ena Shibahara of Rancho Palos Verdes 6-7 (4), 7-5 [10-3].
   Kenin will play fourth-seeded Fanni Stollar of Hungary for the singles title. Stollar beat seventh-seeded Ingrid Neel of Rochester, Minn., 6-4, 6-4.
