AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Top seed David Ferrer beat second-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber 7-6 (5), 6-1 on Saturday to win the Heineken Open title for the third straight year and fourth time overall.

Ferrer matched the record of Australia's Roy Emerson, who won the Auckland singles titles in 1960, 1965, 1966 and 1967.

Spain's Ferrer won the title for the first time in 2007.

The win gave Ferrer the 19th singles title of his career and his eighth in the past 12 months. His win in Auckland last January gave him the first of seven singles titles he won in eight finals appearances in 2012.
