(October 7, 2013) David Ferrer becomes the latest player to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals, to be held in London from November 4-11. The 31-year-old Spaniard is the fourth singles player after Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray to qualify for the eight-man season finale. This will be his fourth straight year playing in the event, fifth overall. Ferrer was a finalist in this event in 2007 falling to Roger Federer.
“I’m very happy to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for the fifth time,” said Ferrer. “At the beginning of the year it’s always a goal to make it to London and if you finish in the Top 8 then you know that you’ve had a good season. The O2 is an amazing venue to play at and the great fans help to bring the event alive.”
Four singles and five team spots remain up for grabs with four weeks remaining in the regular ATP World Tour season. Juan Martin del Potro, Tomas Berdych, Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka currently hold down the fifth to eighth spots in the Emirates ATP Race To London.
