   Jenson Brooksby will have to be content with reaching his second consecutive semifinal in a professional tournament.
   The 18-year-old amateur from the Sacramento suburb of Carmichael lost to wild card Brandon Holt, the son of International Tennis Hall of Famer Tracy Austin, 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-4 on Saturday in the semifinals of the Los Angeles $25,000 Pro Tournament.
   Holt is playing on his home courts at USC, where he is a junior.
   Brooksby, who won the USTA Boys 18 National Championships in Kalamazoo, Mich., last August to earn a wild card in the U.S. Open, also reached the semis of a $25,000 tournament in Waco, Texas, last November. He plans to enroll at Baylor in Waco in the fall or next January. Brooksby still seeks his first berth in a pro final.
