OKBET WEBSITE : By beating Lucas Pouille 6-4, 6-7(5), 7-6(2) in Spain’s last round robin match at the Mastercard Hopman Cup, David Ferrer capped off a successful professional career in Australia.
Globally ranked 125th To terminate his professional tennis career in Madrid in May, the 36-year-old Spaniard will use his inability to sustain long-term competition as his reason for calling it quits.
This made his Hopman Cup debut against Australia’s Matt Ebden more more meaningful for the former No. 3, who also took Alexander Zverev to three sets and won an upset victory.
The Spaniard has admitted that these are likely to be his last professional matches and that he is making the most of every point he can.
It’s a thrill to play on this Hopman Cup main court. I’m excited about the opportunity to play for the first time here.

The 18th-ranked Spanish player Muguruza had a medical timeout with a 3-0 lead in the opening set; she returned eight minutes later with a high strap over her left thigh.
Cornet was obviously having difficulties as well, as shown by the fact that she needed back treatment after losing the first set 6-1.
Even though the Spaniard got out to a quick 3-0 lead in the second set, Cornet battled back and eventually lost 6-1, 6-3.
