   Jenson Brooksby "Brothers," 20, of Carmichael, Calif., in the Sacramento region ousted seventh-seeded Jason "Carl" Jung, a 31-year-old Los Angeles-area native who plays for Chinese Taipei, 6-1, 6-4 today in the first round of the $52,080 Orlando (Fla.) Open.
   Brooksby, who turned pro in December, saved both break points against him in his first career match against Jung, who won the $100,000 San Francisco Challenger in 2018.
   Brooksby is set to meet either Thai-Son Kwiatkowski of Charlottesville, Va., or qualifier Altug Celikbilek of Turkey for the first time on Wednesday. 
   Kwiatkowski graduated from the University of Virginia in 2017, winning the NCAA singles title as a senior and leading the Cavaliers to three consecutive NCAA team titles (2015-17). He reached the semifinals of the $108,320 Tiburon (Calif.) Challenger in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2019.
