David Ferrer Wins 25th Career Title, Improves ATP Finals Hopes After Kuala Lumpur Win
by Staff | October 4th, 2015, 1:33 pm

In a clash of Spanish veterans, David Ferrer ousted Feliciano Lopez 7-5, 7-5 to win the Kuala Lumpur title. It was Ferrer’s 25th career title in his 50th final.

“I feel very happy, because I have never played so well at this tournament,” said Ferrer. “I played my best match of the week in this final, and my sensations after my elbow injury are now very good. Feliciano is a good tennis player, but an even better person. I wish him all the best for the rest of the season.”

Ferrer broke serve in the 12th game of both sets to improve his record against Lopez to 9-6.

“I think I did what I needed to do in order to beat David, which is to play aggressively,” said Lopez. “After I got the break in the first set, I got broken right away serving with the new balls, which was unusual. David played a lot more consistent after that, and made it difficult for me to win points, to shorten the points.”

The 8th place Ferrer adds 250 points toward qualifying for the ATP Finals in London. The title was also the 33-year-old’s 4th of 2015.

Congrats to Ferrer. I guess he’s back from injury. So much for my prediction that Gasquet would overtake him for hte last spot in the finals.
