  • Ferrer captures Bastad title

    7/15/12 9:52 PM | Kelli DeMario
    World No. 5 David Ferrer won his fifth ATP World Tour championship title of the season, having upended compatriot Nicolas Almagro Sunday afternoon. The veteran came through the final in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2.

    Top seed David Ferrer added ATP World Tour title number 16 to his tally after taking out fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro. The 30-year-old needed just 68 minutes to seal his second championship win at the SkiStar Swedish Open. Ferrer converted four of six break points en route to a 6-2, 6-2 victory on Sunday.

    "It has been the best season of my career; I have won five titles," said Ferrer. "I have never done this well and I am very happy for that. I work hard, I always fight every match and every year I try and improve on my game.

    "Last year I played really good tennis," the World No. 5 commented. "I am a better player than in 2007 when I won here. I work to improve my game. I don't work to be in the Top 4. I work to be a better player and nothing else.

    "I think the Top 4 are amazing players, and they are better than everyone else at this moment. I don't think about the Top 4, I think about me and the Top 10.

    "I got some good results on the grass courts and now I have won here in Bastad. Of course I have confidence (going into the London Olympics). I will have two days of relaxing and then next week I will practice on grass."
