Rusty Ferrer beaten in Barcelona

April 25, 2013 11:29:16 UK

David Ferrer suffered a surprise early exit at the Barcelona Open on his first appearance since suffering a thigh injury at last month's Miami Masters.

Ferrer had been beaten 2-6 6-4 7-6 by Andy Murray in the final of the Miami Masters and looked very rusty in Barcelona, suffering a 7-5 3-6 6-1 defeat to the world number 66 Dmitry Tursunov.

It wasn't Ferrer's best match. He didn't play his best tennis.

Dmitry Tursunov

Ferrer, who has been the runner-up at the Barcelona Open on four occasions, had been expected to challenge Rafael Nadal for the title. Nadal is 1.01 to beat Benoit Paire in the next round of the tournament.

Tursunov, who was playing in his first clay-court tournament of the season, admitted after his shock success: "It wasn't Ferrer's best match. He didn't play his best tennis.

"I played very quickly and I didn't make it easy for him. Ferrer was the favourite based on surface and ranking. It was a match where there were a lot of opportunities for both players."

Elsewhere, the fifth seeded Milos Raonic eased into the third round with a 6-4 6-2 victory over France's Edouard Roger-Vasselin. The Canadian is 1.50 to beat Ernests Gulbis in the next round.

Tommy Robredo beat the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, who had played well against Nadal in Monte Carlo last week, 7-5 6-1, while Juan Monaco thrashed Bernard Tomic 6-0 6-2 in just 49 minutes.
