Ferrer wins Unicef Open 2012 title

Ferrer wins Unicef Open 2012 title

David Ferrer beat Philipp Petzschner 6-3, 6-4 to win the Unicef Open 2012 title.

Ferrer broke twice in the opening set and once in the second, closing the match with a love game to comfortably win the Wimbledon warm-up.

Ferrer said he "played his best match of the week" to beat Petzschner.

“I'm very, very happy. I've won two times here,” said Ferrer. “This is special for me because grass is maybe my worst surface. On a clay court or hard court, my game is more adapted.”

“Today was a tough match. The key was with my serve,” assessed Ferrer. “I served very good all the match. I played my best match of this week. I was more consistent than in my last matches.”

“I think he played a great match. He deserved to win the tournament and he was the best player here,” Petzschner said. “I made too many mistakes today. If I want to beat him, I have to play at my highest level. But I'm happy with the week. I played really good tennis.”
