David Ferrer and his absence during Asian swing: 'I got injured on holiday'

David Ferrer has always been a great example of consistency on the Tour. His absence from the Asian swing was, therefore, surprising. However, there was a reason why he was forced to skip the Asian swing. The Spaniard got injured on holiday in Santiago in September, which forced him to withdraw from the China Open and Shanghai Masters. 'I didn't have any goal this year, I wasn't at a high position and I was not having chances for Masters.

I believed it was right moment to hang out with my friends. The funny thing is that I went with friends who do not play sports and the only one who got injured was me,' Ferrer told Onda Cero Radio. He is next playing the European Open in Antwerp, Belgium.

He only wanted to enjoy and have fun. 'Every year I used to do something different, sometimes in Europe, last year in United States and this year I will go to Galapagos.' He also spoke about his career overall: 'At the end of the day, winning or losing is important but it's not the most important thing.

Improving daily and enjoy the journey is most important. If I had understood it earlier, I would have been a better player.' ALSO READ: Knee issues for Rafael Nadal: 'I don't know whether I play Basel, Paris'
