After falling to world No. 62 Yen-Hsun Lu in the Auckland semifinals and failing to defend his title, world No. 3 David Ferrer heavily criticizes himself. The 31-year-old Spaniard has not won a title since last February.

"I didn't play so good—it is maybe one of the worst defeats of my career," Ferrer told reporters. "Today I made a lot of mistakes like a junior."
