Horrible from Ferrer
Didn't see that one coming. Then again Benneteau is one of those players you can't underestimate which clearly Ferrer did.
you sure? i'm actually having problems to believe ferrer could even think that way.I think it's just got to the stage where Ferrer is ranked so high that he can't motivate himself to keep fighting in small events like this. He wanted to win this match but he wasn't up for a long fight with another baseline grinder like Benneteau. He just wanted to get a few matches under his belt before the AO.

Ferrer pretty much gave up at the start of the 2nd.
