David Ferrer has claimed his second title of the season…
The 30-year-old Spanish tennis pro defeated Stanislas Wawrinka 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 on Sunday to defend his Copa Claro title in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Ferrer, the top seed in the tournament, broke his opponent six times — including three in the final set — to earn the 20th title of his career.
He won the Heineken Open last month in Auckland, New Zealand.
Wawrinka was looking to win for his fourth ATP title, but couldn’t match Ferrer’s consistency on the outdoor clay court.
Ferrer won 11 straight points during one stretch in the third set, a slump from which Wawrinka just couldn’t recover.
Ferrer won this tournament last year, beating Nicolas Almagro in an all-Spanish final. Backed by strong support from the Argentine crowd, Ferrer promised to return.
