Ferrer wins Malaysian Open

Spain's David Ferrer defeated countryman Feliciano Lopez to win the ATP Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday.

The top-seeded Ferrer beat second seed Lopez in straight sets 7-5, 7-5, in a match that lasted one hour and 34 minutes.

The final was a fairly even affair with Ferrer sticking to his usual consistent baseline came and Lopez coming to the net as much as possible.

In the first set, the top seed was broken in the seventh game but broke back immediately to eventually run out winning the first set thanks to another service break and his greater consistency.

The second set was tight but at 6-5 Ferrer broke serve and went on to win the set and the well-deserved title.

The tournament win, fourth in 2015, was Ferrer's twenty-fifth career title overall.
