David Ferrer’s Net Worth

David Ferrer

David Ferrer (born 2 April 1982) is a Spanish former professional tennis player.

A three-time Davis Cup champion with Spain, Ferrer won tournaments at all levels on the ATP Tour (ATP 250, ATP 500, Masters 1000) except at a major, and currently has the ninth-highest career prize money earnings of all time among male tennis players.

Ferrer also holds the distinction of winning the most matches on the ATP Tour without having won a major.

Ferrer turned professional in 2000 and was regarded as a clay-court specialist in his early career, winning 13 of his 27 titles on the surface.

However, he has had significant success on all surfaces, having reached the final of the 2013 French Open (without losing a set en route), the semifinals of the Australian and US Opens twice each, and the quarterfinals of Wimbledon twice. Ferrer was part of the Spanish Davis Cup team that won the title in 2008, 2009, and 2011. He won the 2012 Paris Masters and was runner-up at six other Masters tournaments as well as at the 2007 Tennis Masters Cup.

He is widely considered one of the best players not to have won a Grand Slam tournament. He first achieved a top-10 ranking in 2006 and reached a career-high ranking of world No. 3 in July 2013.

He retired in 2019, competing for the last time at his home tournament in Madrid.

On 28 November 2015, Ferrer married his long-time girlfriend, Marta Tornel Nieto.

The couple were introduced in 2008 by Ferrer’s then-coach Javier Piles and his wife.

Tornel has an optometry degree and works at her family’s opticians in Benifaió.

On 4 May 2018, Ferrer and Tornel announced the birth of a son, Leo, via social media.

On 15 August 2018, Hopman Cup organizers announced that Ferrer would represent Spain at the 2019 edition alongside Garbiñe Muguruza.

It was his debut appearance at this tournament.

On 28 August 2018, Ferrer announced that the 2019 season would be his last on the tour.

He also announced a preliminary list of 6 tournaments in which he wanted to compete during his final season: the Hopman Cup, Auckland, Buenos Aires, Acapulco, Barcelona, and Madrid.

At the Miami Masters, Ferrer battled from a set down to defeat world number 3 Alexander Zverev. This was Ferrer’s first top 3 victory in almost 5 years.

Ferrer would cross the path of Alexander Zverev again at his final tournament, the Madrid Masters. From 4–1 up in the first set, he lost 6–4, 6–1, thus ending his career.

Ferrer announced that he would be the new director of the Barcelona Open. Albert Costa was the previous director of the tournament for 11 years.
