David Ferrer Bio

A classic grinder and one of the best returners in the men’s game, David Ferrer enjoyed a breakout season in 2007, reaching the semifinals at the U.S. Open and the final at the Tennis Masters Cup, where he lost to Roger Federer. He finished the season with a 61-23 record. That year, he became one of seven Spaniards to end a season in the ATP’s Top 5. Ferrer also helped Spain win its first Davis Cup in four years in 2008. Ferrer won titles in Acapulco and his hometown of Valencia in 2010 and advanced to three other finals. Ferrer opened 2011 winning Auckland for the second time then upset top-ranked compatriot Rafael Nadal to reach his second career major semifinal at the Australian Open. Ferrer successfully defended his Acapulco championship and was runner-up to Nadal in back-to-back events in Monte Carlo and Barcelona. Ferrer beat both Andy Roddick and Mardy Fish to lead Spain to a Davis Cup quarterfinal victory in Austin, Texas and in December defeated Juan Martin del Potro to help Spain collect its fifth Davis Cup championship in Seville. Ferrer registered his 400th career victory in the Tokyo quarterfinals, was runner-up to Andy Murray in the Shanghai final and beat both Murray and top-ranked Novak Djokovic to secure a semifinal spot at the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London. Ferrer won three titles — Auckland, Buenos Aires and Acapulco — in the first three months of 2012. Ferrer swept Fernando Verdasco in the final to win his third consecutive Acapulco final. Ferrer won his fourth title of the 2012 season on the grass of 's-Hertogenbosch, concluding the season with seven titles. In 2013, Ferrer won his fourth Auckland title, recorded his 500th career win en route to his second Australian Open semifinal and, at the age of 31, reached his first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros in his 42nd career Grand Slam tournament appearance.
