Folsom's Tursunov ousted; college results

   Dmitry Tursunov lost Thursday but still had a good tournament.
   The 30-year-old Russian, who lives in Moscow and the Sacramento suburb of Folsom, fell to 16th-seeded Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 on clay in the third round of the Barcelona Open. It was their first career meeting.
   Playing on his worst surface, Tursunov qualified for the tournament, beat 49th-ranked Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan in the first round and ousted top-seeded and fourth-ranked David Ferrer in the second round. By reaching the third round, Tursunov will continue to rise in the world rankings.
   Tursunov has almost halved his ranking this year, jumping from No. 122 to No. 66 after a series of injuries. He climbed to a career-high No. 20 in 2006. 
   Bellucci advanced to his first ATP World Tour quarterfinal since last October, when he reached the Moscow final before losing to Andreas Seppi of Italy.
