   Jenson Brooksby will play for the title in the $25,000 UTR Pro Tennis Series in Newport Beach, Calif.
   The 20-year-old resident of Carmichael, Calif., in the Sacramento area crushed Tristan Boyer, a Stanford freshman from Altadena in the Los Angeles region, 6-1, 6-1 today in the semifinals of the first-place playoff.
   Brooksby has won all 10 of his sets in the tournament, his first as a professional. He is scheduled to play Brandon Holt of Rolling Hills in the L.A. region on Sunday.
   Holt, the 22-year-old son of International Tennis Hall of Famer Tracy Austin, defeated Govind Nanda, a UCLA junior from Redlands in Southern California, 2-6, 7-5, 6-1.
   Brooksby and Holt will meet for the second time. Holt prevailed 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-4 in the semifinals of a $25,000 tournament in Los Angeles last January.
   Meanwhile, Eric Hadigian of Sacramento is slated to play Joshua Ortlip of Irvine in the L.A. region in the final of the second-place playoff. Hadigian, a Gonzaga sophomore, beat Daniel De Jonge, a Pepperdine junior from the Netherlands, 6-4, 6-1. 
   In the final of the third-place playoff, Stanford senior Timothy Sah of San Diego is set to face Miles Jones of Marina Del Rey, an L.A. suburb. Sah defeated Robert Shelton, a Pepperdine sophomore from Lancaster, Pa., by walkover.  
   ATP Tour — Gianluca Mager of Italy eliminated sixth-seeded Sam Querrey, a 33-year-old San Francisco native, 7-6 (8), 6-1 in the second round of the Delray Beach (Fla.) Open. Querrey, the 2016 champion, fell to 1-5 in singles since last January.
   In the first round of doubles, Austin Krajicek of Plano, Texas, and Querrey defeated wild cards Bjorn Fratangelo of Orlando, Fla., and Dennis Novikov of San Jose, Calif., 7-6 (4), 6-3. 
   Querrey is playing in his first tournament since the ATP handed him a suspended fine of $20,000 for breaching the COVID-19 protocol in Russia last October. 
   WTA Tour — Fifth-seeded Shuko Aoyama and Ena Shibahara of Japan beat Karolina Muchova and Marketa Vondrousova of the Czech Republic by walkover to reach the quarterfinals of the Abu Dhabi WTA Women's Tennis Open in the United Arab Emirates.
   Aoyama and Shibahara, a 22-year-old native of Mountain View in the San Francisco Bay Area, are scheduled to face top-seeded Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei and Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic on Monday.
   Hsieh, ranked No. 1 in women's doubles, and Krejcikova, ranked seventh, edged Sharon Fichman of Canada and Giuliana Olmos, a product of Fremont in the Bay Area, 6-2, 5-7 [12-10].
