Tursunov, Querrey fall to 0-2 entering Aussie Open

   Dmitry Tursunov will not exactly be filled with confidence when he plays next week in the Australian Open.
   The longtime Sacramento-area resident fell to 0-2 in singles this year with a 6-4, 6-4 loss Monday to Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus in the first round of the $434,250 Apia International in Sydney. Baghdatis won the tournament in 2010 and Tursunov in 2008.
   Tursunov, a 29-year-old Moscow native, lost to Albert Ramos of Spain 7-5, 6-2 in the opening round at Doha, Qatar, last week.
   Sam Querrey also dropped to 0-2 entering the Australian Open. In a clash of American wild cards in Auckland, New Zealand, the 24-year-old San Francisco native lost to Ryan Harrison, 19, of Bradenton, Fla., 6-4, 6-3 in the first round of the $398,250 Heineken Open.
   Both players have had extensive success in Northern California.
