   Yasmin Schnack and Eric Roberson, who played mixed doubles together in the 2013 U.S. Open, will meet Whit Livingston and Justin Garcia today in the Open Division final in the Sacramento Clay Court League.
   The match is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Ben Combs' house (8582 Westin Lane) in Orangevale. The champions will split $1,000 and the runners-up $500.
   Schnack and Roberson won a national playoff in 2013 to earn an automatic wild card in the U.S. Open. They fell in the first round to Slovakians Janette Husarova and Filip Polasek 6-4, 7-6 (3).
   Later that year, Schnack and Roberson took the mixed doubles title in the Sacramento Clay Court League.
   Play begins at 9 a.m. today with the 9.0 final. Kurt Chan and Anton Talle will face Laura McGaffigan and Bella Norton for the total first prize of $200. The second-place team will share $100.
   In the 40-and-over final at 11 a.m., Bryan Paveglio and Chris Potthast will take on Chris Evers and Dave Hagiwara. The champs will divide $500 and the runners-up $250.
   Admission and lunch, provided by Dickie's BBQ, are free. Proceeds from the tip jar will benefit the Sacramento Junior Tennis Fund.
