Ferrer Survives Tough Match to Reach Fourth Round at Wimbledon

It wasn’t easy, but David Ferrer has advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon…

The 31-year-old Spanish tennis player, who lost to Rafael Nadal at the French Open in his first Grand Slam final, rallied back to beat the Ukraine’s Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-7 (6), 7-6 (2), 2-6, 6-1, 6-2 in an intense third round match on Saturday at the All England Club.

In a back-and-forth match on Court 1, Ferrer needed treatment for blisters on his foot but still managed to outlast the 26th-seeded Dolgopolov and reach the last 16 for the fourth year in a row.

Ferrer, who reached the quarterfinals last year, will next face Croatia’s Ivan Dodig.
