David Ferrer ends 2 year wait for title

Spaniard David Ferrer claimed his first (ATP) Tour title in almost two years by seeing off Alexandr Dolgopolov to win the clay-court tournament in Bastad on Sunday.

The 35 year old Ferrer came through 6-4, 6-4 to seal the 27th title of his career, but first since October 2015 when he won in Vienna.

The former French Open finalist, now ranked 46th in the world, was cruising to victory with a 5-1 lead in the second set, but needed seven match points to eventually get over the line.
