Ferrero retires from professional tennis

Juan Carlos Ferrero lost to Nicolas Almagro in the first round at the Valencia Open 500 and finished his 14-year career on the ATP World Tour.

The Spaniard cried as he received a standing ovation on court after the encounter.

"This is a very special week, a very emotional week," said Ferrero. "Today on court it was very emotional, but it’s been very emotional since the tournament started.

"There were two sides of the coin to playing against Nico," he continued.

"When I first saw the draw, I was really not happy because he was one of the few players I didn’t want to play. We’re best friends, we practise together, and Nico is also trying to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. I was really not happy, but then, the nice side of it is that I played my last match against a very important person for me, a great friend."

"You would have seen a lot of the crowd really lifted towards the end of the fourth set there when I started to get back into that set and they could sense that he was getting a little bit tight trying to close it out and going to a fifth as well. Feelings like that you can't buy. Until you're one of the players out there experiencing it, it is a massive adrenaline rush."

Ferrero wins MercedesCup 2011 Title in Stuttgart

Ferrero wins MercedesCup 2011 Title in Stuttgart

Juan Carlos Ferrero defeated Pablo Andujar 6-4, 6-0 to win the 2011 MercedesCup title in Stuttgart.

“It’s been a dream for me this week,” said Ferrero. “This first tournament playing here [after] a very long year at home, practising zero, so I came here with no goals. Now I am the winner of the tournament. I’m very happy. I take a lot of confidence in myself again. I can believe that I can win tournaments again after the injury. That is the most important thing. The knee responds very well, so everything’s perfect.”

Ferrero earned 250 ATP Rankings points, €68,850 in prize money and a Mercedes-Benz SLK 350 BlueEFFICIENCY car.

“I knew here we win the car, so it’s one thing I wanted to do,” said Ferrero. “And today I think my father is very happy about it.”

There were three service breaks in the first six games, with Ferrero taking a 2-0 and 4-2 lead. Andujar saved two set points at 3-5, but Ferrero was not to be denied. He won 18 of his 28 service points, closing out the set with an ace.

Ferrero converted his fourth break point opportunities in the first game of the second set and never looked back, as Andujar hit four double faults and won 15 points.

“I started the match very strong, very aggressive all the time with my forehand and with my backhand, and I put a lot of pressure on him all the time,” said Ferrero. “The second I didn’t let my level down, so I stayed motivated all the time and played aggressive till the end.”

“After what I’ve been passing at home, recovering very slow all the time, staying 10 months at home, it was very difficult to come here and win,” he admitted. “When I was playing first round, I could not imagine that I would win the tournament. For me it’s a big surprise and I’m very happy about it.”

Andujar came into Stuttgart on a four-match losing streak.

“He [played] the best match of the week,” stated Andujar. “I thought I had a chance to beat him before going to the court, but after the first set I started to get a bit nervous because he was not missing, he wasn’t making long rallies, he was fighting every ball, and for me it was difficult. I didn’t stay at that level, and finally he won.”

Andujar picked up 150 ATP Rankings points, and €36,250 in prize money.

“I’m playing solid and I played a really good week for me. I lost to a former World No. 1. It’s tough for me, but still I’m happy – happy for him as well because I know he had a tough time [coming back from injury].” He commented after the loss.
