Ferrer Online video Ranking: / five


David Ferrer has been beaten by Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland in a match of the ATP World Tour Finals. Wawrinka won the match in three sets by 6-7(3-7), 6-4, 6-1.

It was the 12th match between these two players and Wawrinka defeated Ferrer for the 5th time.

It was a very important match for Wawrinka. If he had lost, he would have been knocked out of the tournament, but, now, with this win, he has kept himself alive and if Rafael Nadal manages to get better of Tomas Berdych in his next match, Wawrinka will make it to the final 4.

Talking to the reporters in the post match interview, Wawrinka said, “I did what I had to do. I won and now, it’s all up to Rafa. He is a great player and I hope he wins his next match.”

On the other hand, Ferrer was gutted to end up on the losing side even after getting up by a set. The Spaniard said, “I think I played too many matches off late. I didn’t realize that coming into this tournament, but, now, I have realized that. Participating in 7 competitions in space of 50 days is just too much.”

In the opening set, Wawrinka started well and was ahead by 5-2 at one point of time, but, Ferrer made a tremendous come back and won 4 games on the trot to make the score 6-5 in his favour. He was serving for the set in the 12th game, but, he failed to serve it out and the set went into the tie breaker.

In the tie breaker, Ferrer kept his nerves and ended up winning it easily to grab the first set.

But, from there onwards, Wawrinka began dominating. The Swiss number 2 broke Ferrer’s serve four times in the next two sets and won both the sets by profound margins to finish off the match.
