David Ferrer is going to take part in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship for the 4th time and he will be looking for his first title there. He had gone very close to winning that tournament a couple of years back in 2011, but, he had got beaten in the final.

Ferrer is high on confidence at the moment. His performance in the last season was fantastic. He claimed his maiden Grand Slam singles title by winning the final at Roland Garros and ended the season as the third ranked player in the world. It’s his career best ranking. His goal next season should be to move further up in the rankings and for that, he would like to make a good start to the season.

Talking to the reporters a few days back, Ferrer said, “I have played a few times in UAE, but, I am yet to win the title there. This time around, I am entering that competition with a much better frame of mind and I think this year I have a very good chance to achieve glory.”

“I have always been supported immensely by the people of UAE and I am hoping to get the same kind of support again. I would be pleased to win the title in front of those guys. I know it’s not easy as I will be up against some very good players there, but, I will try my best.”

Ferrer’s first opponent in Abu Dhabi will be the Swiss player Stanislas Wawrinka who has also been in good form of late. When asked about that match, the Spaniard said, “Stanislas is coming out of a good season. So, he is not lacking confidence and I will have to play really well to put him under pressure.”
