David Ferrer retired from tennis: Goodbye to the “best of the terrestrials”
Endpoint for a remarkable career. David Ferrer gave up 6-4 6-1 with Alexander Zverev in the second round of Madrid and materialized his retirement from professional tennis.
Ex-N ° 3 of the world, Top 10 for ten different seasons (seven of them consecutively), champion of 27 ATP titles, finalist of Roland Garros, other five times semifinalist of Grand Slam, 12th player in history with more won matches and the lauros continue and follow to frame the Spanish race.
Simply “the best of the terrestrials”, consecrated in a generation that saw him deal hand in hand with the “superhuman” Big 4 at its best and always stays in the first places.
On his farewell tour, Ferrer went battling true to his style. In all the tournaments he played in 2019 he won at least one match.
This Wednesday, in Madrid, he started with Zverev himself (4-1 after beating him in Miami), but the German responded fiercely and signed one of the less rewarding victories of his career, but more than needed in his lazy start of season (which sees him defend just the title in the Magic Box).
Post party, Ferrer celebrated on the court with his family, received the blessing of the historic Manolo Santana and saw how all the figures of the circuit came together to dismiss him in a video full of admiration and respect. Zverev, his last executioner, stayed at the side of the track to film the ceremony …
The player is gone, the legend is born.
