Brooksby qualifies for Antwerp, draws fifth seed Opelka

   Top-seeded Jenson Brooksby, a 20-year-old rising star from Carmichael, Calif., in the Sacramento area, beat eighth-seeded Norbert Gombos, 31, of Slovakia 6-4, 6-2 today to qualify for the European Open, an ATP 250 tournament in Antwerp, Belgium.
   Brooksby, ranked No. 70 (ninth in the United States), is scheduled to play 6-foot-11 (2.11-meter) Reilly Opelka, ranked No. 25 (first in the U.S.) and seeded fifth, for the first time on Tuesday in the opening round of the indoor hardcourt tournament.
   Both Brooksby and Opelka, 24, reached the round of 16 in the U.S. Open last month.
