   On Saturday, Jenson Brooksby routed his opponent to reach the boys 16 final in the USTA National Clay Court Championships.
   Today, though, the 15-year-old resident of Carmichael in the Sacramento area suffered the opposite fate.
   No. 7 seed Lukas Greif of Evansville, Ind., dominated No. 14 Brooksby 6-1, 6-1 in Delray Beach, Fla.
   In the semifinals, Brooksby demolished JanMagnus Johnson of Naples, Fla., 6-1, 6-0.
   Brooksby also was the runner-up in the 14s last year, falling to William Grant of Santa Barbara.
   Brooksby won the 12s in the 2013 USTA National Championships in Little Rock, Ark.
   In boys 16 doubles this week, Brooksby and Stevie Gould of Corte Madera in the San Francisco Bay Area reached the round of 16 before losing to Axel Nefve of Hinsdale, Ill., and William Woodall of Washington, D.C., 6-2, 6-3.
