Thrilled that Ferru won Auckland but surprised at the score. Thought it would be much more competitive or do the scores not reflect the quality of the match?

Imram, yet another welcome to the forum from me and thank you so much for the two videos. The woman interviewing him in the second video was quite attractive and he was quite shy with her. I thought the eight upsies or whatever they called it with the ball was respectable from David considering the flip flops. But he was a bit embarrassed at his poor score and looked cute saying he'd try to to a better job with the match. He also answers everything straight up like when he was asked which Daveed would win and he said "I'll try for Ferrer" - always liked that about him - he never sends a snide answer back - and it's not because of his English. He probably doesn't do it in Spanish either.

Nice lad. Nice win. Keep them videos coming Imram!!!!

And I thought I was too tired to post last night. First 6 games of the match had me worried ( yes me) since DF had a harder time holding onto his serve. But after that he seemed to settle in to a rhythm and Nalby seemed a bit off. I assume needs more matches, better physical etcetc. Anyhoo

RESULTS - SATURDAY, 15 JANUARY, 2011

Singles - Final
[1] D Ferrer (ESP) d [6] D Nalbandian (ARG) 63 62

Doubles - Final
[2] M Granollers (ESP) / T Robredo (ESP) d J Brunstrom (SWE) / S Huss (AUS) 64 76(6)

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Ferrer: “It’s very special. When I won here [in 2007] it was my first hard court title and to win it for a second time four years later is special because it’s more difficult now with the pressure and expectation. I like a lot to play the second week of the season here; I like the tournament a lot, the people support me a lot.

“Of course I am with confidence after winning a tournament; the next tournament I will go in with confidence in my game and my mentality.

“I think David did not have a good day. He played a little bit badly in the second set. Maybe it was the key in the first set at 3-3 when I went a break up and won the set. He lost concentration. I thought I played very consistently and I did my job.”

Nalbandian: “He played better than me. I had some chances in the beginning of the first set, but couldn’t take them. Sometimes I missed easy shots and I tried risks that didn’t work.

“I think it was a very good week. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes you play good and lose, sometimes you play bad and win. Sport is like that. Today I lost. I will try to play better every day.”

Thx for the citation Alisia. D'you know... I don't think I've ever heard David say a bad thing about an opponent - limited English or not. I just don't think it's in his nature... Now HE REALLY is a humble champion more than anyone else (and yes, in the face of derision / opprobium, I do include the Top Two in this estimation, as D appears to accept his "limits" more than anyone else, but I think these limits possibly more mental than anything else.)

Before anyone brings on the big guns, let me say, I really admire what Rafa and Roger have brought to tennis, but, it's David who raises my spirits, who stirs my blood... Rafa and Roger are on a different planet, but Ferru's HUMAN, with all the human faults and he fights so goddam hard every day and is so gentle and lovely with it...
Hope you folks can understand what I'm getting at... Don't mean to upset anyone.

Ferrer Wins Battle Of Davids, Clinches 10th Title

World No. 7 David Ferrer won his 10th ATP World Tour title on the eve of the Australian Open as he halted David Nalbandian’s hot streak in Auckland with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over the Argentine in the final of the Heineken Open on Saturday.

Four years ago at the ATP World Tour 250 tennis tournament in Auckland, the 28-year-old Ferrer won his first ATP World Tour hard-court title with victory over Tommy Robredo.

“It’s very special,” declared Ferrer. “When I won here [in 2007] it was my first hard court title and to win it for a second time four years later is special because it’s more difficult now with the pressure and expectation. I like a lot to play the second week of the season here; I like the tournament a lot, the people support me a lot.

“Of course I am with confidence after winning a tournament; the next tournament I will go in with confidence in my game and my mentality,” added the Spaniard, who faces Jarkko Nieminen in the first round of the Australian Open.

The top seeded Ferrer was strong on serve throughout the week, holding 93 per cent of his service games in the lead up to the final, and he continued that trend against Nalbandian, saving all three break points he faced. In overturning a three-match losing streak against the Argentine, Ferrer broke serve three times from five opportunities and wrapped up victory in 68 minutes.

And there one year passed and it´s time for Auckland again

Hope the tournament will be as good for David as the one last year Mucha suerte

Btw, did anyone of you see the final from Abu Dhabi against Djokovic yesterday? Ferru lost in straight sets, but it was soooo cute, because Marta was there as well and during his speech she was smiling all the time and just looked so happy and proud about her boy (even if he lost), this was soooo sweet
