David Ferrer: 'I could've faced 2013 French Open final with more ambition'

In an interview to Universo, the former world no. 3 David Ferrer recalled some of the best moments of his career. In 2013 he reached his first Major final at the French Open, and he lost it to Rafael Nadal in straight sets. 'No. I don't think in terms of revenge, but that it was my first Major final. I had played some Major semi-finals with Rafa, but a final changes everything, it's different. And maybe I could have faced it a little bit more prepared or with more ambition. I can't say you exactly, but I thought about many things and I didn't play as I did for the whole tournament.'

Asked which was his best season ever, the current world no. 37 replied: 'Maybe 2012, where I won seven events, but I believe also 2013 where I could have ended as no. 3 and have much success as well, but in 2012 I was at my best physically and in terms of tennis.'

He finally commented on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal: 'I think that at 31 you are young. My best moment was when I was 32, 33, 31 and 30. Federer playing at 36 at this level surprises me, but if someone could do it, it is him.'
