Barcelona Open 2019: Nadal ends Ferrer’s run

Rafa Nadal defeated David Ferrer 6-3 6-3 to advance to the Barcelona quarterfinals for the 13th time of his career, but it was all about Ferru today as he played his last match in Barcelona and will retire in Madrid in a few weeks time.
The former world number 3 is a true champion who always gave it all on court and has a trophy case most players can only dream of: 27 titles among them 10 ATP 500 and one Masters 1000 (Bercy 2012), 3 Davis Cups (2008, 2009, 2011). He reached the 2013 Roland Garros final (l. to Nadal), the Australian and US Open finals and the Wimbledon quarterfinals. He also recorded 54 top 10 wins, the last one being a victory over Zverev in Miami last month.
