World number three David Ferrer of Spain said that he’s happy and satisfied with how his 2013 season panned out, stating that his performances in Grand Slam events have been fruitful. He noted his first Grand Slam final appearance at the French Open as a major highlight of the year.
“My season has been good. I reached the Quarterfinals at Wimbledon, then got injured for a month after that I found it hard to get back on track, especially in Montreal and Cincinnati. Then I reached the Quarterfinal at US Open. The Asian tour was not as good as I expected. Maybe the first week in Asia was the worst I had. But after that it was good, I reached the finals in Stockholm and Valencia,” he said.
“The final at Roland Garros, it has been good in general. I have been as consistent as last year, which was difficult. Now I am no.4 and there are only three players better than me, so it is hard to make it better. I will finish 4th or 5th in ranking but there is another Masters tournament to go. I wanted to finish amongst the top 8, I did it. It was a shame to lose last few finals. But I am happy with consistency. A Masters 1000 is always difficult. I will only focus on tomorrow’s match against Simon or Mahut. But ofcourse win here will be difficult,” he added.
