World No. 4 David Ferrer tells Ole that he isn’t bent on winning a Grand Slam title. Ferrer has yet to reach a Grand Slam final.

“Every player dreams of that,” he said. “But I am being sincere when I say I don’t think about it. I only try to play better every week."

The seemingly tireless 30-year-old added that the wear and tear of the tour is weighing on him more than it used to.

“What I do now affects me more,” he said. “I do not recover like when I was 20 or 25 years old. Now I get tired more. Before I could train many more hours, I could go out, do everything and I recovered. Now I have to rest more.”
