David Ferrer completed a successful defence of his Abierto Mexicano Telcel Open title with victory over Nicolas Almagro in the final in Acapulco. Neither player could make the most of the four breaks of serve they shared in the opening set, and in the end it was Ferru who secured the tie-break 7-4.
Almagro, who was seeking a third-straight ATP Tour crown, battled back in the second set and forced a decider by winning another tie-break 7-2. But the effort of dragging himself back into the contest seemed to sap Almagro, and Ferrer quickly broke twice early in the final set on his way to taking it 6-2 and securing an 11th career title.
Let me say: ''¡¡Enhorabuena Ferru!!''
