Ferrer Tennis Academy players David Ferrer and Iñigo Cervantes are ending the year playing in the ATP World Tour Finals and ATP Challenger Tour Finals, respectively, as reward for the results achieved in 2015.
David Ferrer has once again been ranked as one of the top eight players in the world thanks to a magnificent season, in which he has lifted five titles: ATP 500 Vienna, ATP 250 Kuala Lumpur, ATP 500 Acapulco, ATP 500 Rio de Janeiro and ATP 250 Doha. This brings the total number of individual ATP titles won by the Ferrer Tennis Academy player thus far to 26.
These and other outstanding results during the 2015 season, such as the ATP Masters 1000 semi-finals in Paris and Rome and the ATP 500 in Peking and Barcelona, have enabled the player from Javea to secure his seventh appearance at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.
David has been drawn in the Ilie Nastase group with Rafa Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray. His first opponent will be the Scot Andy Murray, who he will meet on Monday 16th November at 2 p.m. local time at the Barclays Center in London.
For his part, Iñigo Cervantes has been rewarded for his great season on the ATP Challenger circuit with confirmation of his participation in the ATP Challenger Tour Finals that will be played by the top eight players of 2015, starting on 23rd November in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Along with Cervantes, Paolo Lorenzi, Farrukh Dustov, Radu Albot, Marco Cecchinato, Guido Pella and Daniel Muñoz have also qualified to play the ATP Challenger Tour Finals, and will face each other in a tournament that has the same format as the ATP World Tour Finals, consisting of group stages (four players per group), semi-final and final.
In his first year at the Ferrer Tennis Academy, Iñigo Cervantes has once again performed at an excellent level and been winning titles on the ATP Challenger circuit. He won the tournaments played in this category in Marburg, Venice and Ostrava, achieving his best ranking thus far, which leaves him just outside the Top 100.
