   Brooksby has lost only six games in two matches in his first tournament as a pro. He set up a showdown against Alafia Ayeni (2-0), a Cornell senior from San Diego, on Wednesday in a round-robin finale in Group A. Ayeni defeated 30-year-old Alex Sarkissian (0-2) of Glendale in the L.A. area 7-6 (4), 6-3.
