AFP, NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND

Ferrer is enjoying one of the best seasons of his career and it was his 51st win of a season that has seen him reach the French Open semi-finals and push Andy Murray hard in the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

It saw him add the Swedish open title to those he has already accrued in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, on grass, on the hard court of Auckland, New Zealand, and his favored clay surface like Bastad, as well as Buenos Aires and Acapulco, Mexico.

Top seed Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia won the Mercedes Cup on Sunday, a victory that allowed his wife to drive away with a luxury Mercedes.

World No. 8 Tipsarevic won his third career ATP Tour title by beating Argentine second seed Juan Monaco 6-4, 5-7, 6-3.

It was the 28-year-old’s first trophy of the year and it adds to previous titles in Moscow and Kuala Lumpur last year.

Tipsarevic also won a top-of-the-range Mercedes-Benz.

“I don’t want to call it a deal, but I have pretty solid car at home, so I don’t need it,” Tipsarevic said. “But my wife [Biljana] and I had our anniversary a couple of days back. She also had her birthday. So I promised her the car, if I won the tournament. The points go to me.”
