Ferrer Defends Buenos Aires


(February 24, 2013) David Ferrer won his second tournament of 2013 by defeating Stanislas Wawrinka 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 on Sunday to defend his Buenos Aires title, his 20th career ATP crown.

“Winning 20 ATP tournaments is tough to do,” Ferrer said. “Never in my life did I think I would win 20. It is something that, well, dreams come true more than we think.”

“I am very happy for this title,” Ferrer added. “I cannot describe it with other words. It’s very hard to win back-to-back titles, and this tournament in Buenos Aires is always very tough. I am very proud.”

“I think David was better today,” Wawrinka said. “He was a little bit stronger than me and he deserved the victory. But I’m really happy with my week. It was important to play well and win some great matches, especially the semi-final yesterday. It was a great week for me so I need to take the positives from that.”
