History beckons as David Ferrer bid to win Acapulco for third consecutive time

Abierto Mexicano Telcel: Defending Champion David Ferrer defeated the Columbian Santiago Giraldo 7-5, 6-4 to cruise into the finals of the Acapulco played here at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel on Friday. With this win, the top seeded Spaniard registered 14 victories on the trot at the Acapulco and would be vying to become the second player to win the ATP World Tour 500 event for the third consecutive time. He will take on his countryman Fernando Verdasco in the final on Sunday.

Ferrer currently ranked number six saved all six break points he faced and wrapped off the match in one hour and 51 minutes.
Ferrer is on a tremendous form and started off the year on a positive as he successfully defended his Heineken Open crown in Auckland before winning the Copa Claro in Sao Paulo in February.

"There is no doubt that tomorrow I will give my everything to win both singles and doubles. But win or lose, this week has been a great result for me. I love this tournament and the people here and I will keep coming back."

Meanwhile the eighth-seeded Fernando Verdasco defeated Stanislas Wawrinka 6-3, 6-3 to reach his first final of the season.
