David Ferrer nets second Buenos Aires win on the trot

DAVID Ferrer has won the ATP 250 in Buenos Aires for the second consecutive year after beating Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka in the final by 6-4, 3-6 and 6-1.

The tournament has been won for five years running by Spanish tennis players – Tommy Robredo in 2009, Juan Carlos Ferrero in 2010, Nicolás Almagro in 2011 and Ferrer in the last two years.

Jávea-born Ferrer, who is currently world number four – ahead of compatriot and former number one Rafa Nadal – walked the first set against Wawrinka and looked likely to do the same in set two after breaking his rival's serve for the second time in the seventh game of a match which, up to that point, had brought no surprises.

But a lapse in Ferrer's play from the fourth to the sixth game had already allowed the Swiss world number 17 to break the Spaniard's serves twice and as the set progressed, he began to commit more and more faults allowing Wawrinka to take advantage and forge ahead to victory with a final score of 6-3 in his favour.

After a fairly easy win for Wawrinka in the second set, however, Ferrer got a second wind in the third and, returning to the implacable and impeccable play see in set one, eventually had his rival losing confidence and clinched a swift victory of 6-1.

His victory at the Lawn Tennis Club in the Argentine capital is the 15th title of Ferrer's career and the second this season, following his win on clay at Auckland earlier this year.
