Ferrer Claims His Second Unicef Open Title

David Ferrer has received a serious confidence boost with Wimbledon right around the corner…

The 30-year-old Spanish tennis star secured his fourth title of the year by beating unseeded Philipp Petzschner 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday to win the Unicef Open grass-court tournament in Den Bosch, Netherlands.

It’s the second time Ferrer, who was the tournament’s top seed this year, has taken home the title.

Ferrer, the 2008 champion, broke the German twice in the opening set and once in the second, closing the match by winning a game at love to comfortably earn a victory at the Wimbledon warm-up.

“Now I want to enjoy this moment and tomorrow I will focus on Wimbledon,” Ferrer said. “I played my best match of the week.”

Following a successful clay court season that included wins in Acapulco and Buenos Aires, reaching the final in Barcelona and a semifinal appearance at Roland Garros, Ferrer demonstrated few problems adapting to the quicker grass surface.

Ferrer is seeded seventh at Wimbledon, and the Spaniard faces a first-round match against Germany’s Dustin Brown.
