David Ferrer v Mischa Zverev Head to Head
The pair have played each other once before, but that was as far back as 2008 in Rotterdam. On that occasion Zverev won in straight sets on a hard court.
Ferrer, Popular Spanish Veteran Nearing the End
Ferrer, at the age of 37, is now at the veteran stage of his career, and has announced that either this event, or the one that follows in Madrid, will be his last event before retirement.
If this is to be his last appearance on a tennis court in a senior event, it will mark the end of a glorious career that has brought him 27 career titles, a Grand Slam final appearance, and more than US $31 million in prize money.
Barcelona is a tournament where he has enjoyed a fair measure of success over the years, reaching the final four times, only to lose on each occasion to compatriot Rafael Nadal. A very popular figure on tour, he is sure to get a warm and emotional welcome from the crowd when he steps on court.
Zverev, Only Form of Note Came in Doubles
31-year-old Mischa Zverev is the older brother of world number three Alexander. He is having a very poor year when it comes to singles events; only in Miami has he gone beyond the first round of any tournament that he has entered, and even then he was helped by the fact his opponent retired during their first round match.
In fact, his best result so far this year came with his brother, with the pair winning the doubles title in Acapulco.
However, his performances on clay do little to suggest he can cause an upset in Barcelona. He was beaten in straight sets in Marrakech, and failed to get out of qualifying in Monte-Carlo.
Ferrer v Zverev Odds
Ferrer is the heavy odds-on favourite for this match at 2/11, whilst Zverev is priced at 51/10. If this is to be the last tournament for the Spaniard, it is unlikely to be Zverev that brings the curtain down on his illustrious career.
