David Ferrer did not have a great ending to his year on the tour. The world no. 3 went 0-3 in the round robin stage of the ATP World Tour Finals, losing to Rafael Nadal, Stanislas Wawrinka and Tomas Berdych, which marks his worst losing streak this season.
The Spaniard played seven consecutive tournament in as many weeks heading into the year-end championships. He had reached the finals in three events but lost to Grigor Dimitrov, Mikhail Youzhny and Novak Djokovic.
“I know is a lot of tournaments,” he said. “But after last year I want to play in Stockholm because I didn’t play too many matches. Well, I did final in Stockholm, final Valencia, final Paris, and three matches here. Is too much. But now I know it’s too much. Before, I never know it. I did three finals in three weeks, no?”
While Ferrer finished the season ranked third, he only won two titles this season and holds a 2-7 record in finals, which is a significant drop from the previous season, where he finished the season with his first ever ATP Masters title win. He finished his 2013 season with 60 wins and 24 losses.
