Spanish tennis ace dismisses thoughts of retirement

SPANISH tennis star David Ferrer has said that he’s not quite contemplating retirement just yet and that he will continue playing as long as he enjoys playing the game.

“I still do not think about retirement. I go day by day and learning, I will continue playing because I look forward to it and with a lot of motivation. In case I see that I do not enjoy playing tennis, I will decide to hang the racket; it would not make sense to continue,” said Ferrer, who is currently at No 37 in the world rankings and now into his 36th year. He’s particularly looking forward to seeing his country enjoying success in the 2018 Davis Cup.
“I think we can do some great things in the Davis Cup. We start the event playing at home and we have very good tennis players like Carreño, Bautista. We also have some good doubles teams in the top-ten, Spain has very good tennis players; I think we can win the Davis Cup in 2018, but we’ll have to be calm.”

Ferrer – who is about to begin the 2018 season chasing a record-breaking fifth title in Auckland and ahead of the first major, the Australian Open – was asked about what he believed has been the most important match in his long career.
“If I had to pick a special victory it would be the Davis Cup final against Juan Martín del Potro in Sevilla, or when I won the Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy. There are also some great matches that I didn’t win, such as the one in the Davis Cup final in Prague against Tomas Berdych; easily the best I’ve ever played on a tennis court.”
