Ferrer Claims First Rio Open Crown; Easily Defeats Fognini in Final

atpworldtour.com February 22, 2015 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - David Ferrer made quick work of Fabio Fognini to claim his first Rio Open presented by Claro title on Sunday evening.

 

Ferrer needed one hour and 23 minutes to dispatch Fognini 6-2, 6-3, winning his 23rd ATP World Tour crown and a record seventh in Latin America's 'Golden Swing'. The 32-year-old Spaniard, also a three-time titlist in both Acapulco and Buenos Aires, was previously tied with countryman Nicolas Almagro.

 

Ferrer, who captured his second title of the year after prevailing at the season-opening Qatar ExxonMobil Open (d. Berdych), improved his perfect FedEx ATP Head2Head edge over Fognini to 8-0. He also defeated the Italian in the Argentina Open final last year.

 

The World No. 9, who earlier in the week cracked the Top 20 of the Open Era match wins list (615-295 win-loss mark), takes home $343,000 and 500 Emirates ATP Rankings points. In front of Brazilian sporting legends Gustavo Kuerten, Ronaldo and Cesar Cielo, Ferrer broke twice in the opening set and secured the decisive break of serve in the fourth game of the second.

 

Fresh off a stunning comeback victory over World No. 3 Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals at the Jockey Club Brasileiro, Fognini was bidding to win his fourth ATP World Tour title. He collects $154,620 and 300 Emirates ATP Rankings points for his efforts.
