David Ferrer has claimed his third tournament title of the year in 2012…
The 29-year-old professional Spanish tennis player—currently ranked No. 5 in the world on the ATP rankings list—easily defended his title at the Mexican Open on Saturday, beating fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco 6-1, 6-2 in the final.
Ferrer broke Verdasco twice in each set to take the match in just over an hour.
This marks Ferrer’s second title in as many weeks, following his victory last Sunday at the Copa Claro event in Buenos Aires. Ferrer won his first tournament of 2012 in Auckland, New Zealand at the Heineken Open.
With his performance at the Mexican Open, Ferrer has improved his 2012 record to 18-1—with his only loss coming to Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open.
