I Don’t Deserve a Grand Slam Title: David Ferrer

Making an honest self-assessment, Spanish tennis player David Ferrer said that he has zero Grand Slam titles for the reason that he doesn’t deserve to have one.

Speaking to PTI (via The Hindu) ahead of Spain’s Davis Cup tie against India, Ferrer highlighted his failure at the majors even as he took pride in his otherwise successful career.

“I don’t have a Grand Slam but tennis is very justice (sic); I don’t have it because I don’t deserve it,” he said.

The fact that the 34-year-old has 26 ATP singles titles under his belt, however, makes him proud of his achievements.

“Anyway I am proud of my career. I have tried to do best and I am happy for that,” added Ferrer, who made it to the French Open final in 2014 (lost to Rafael Nadal).

Ferrer will look to get hold of some winning momentum when he plays the two singles rubbers against hosts India in the World Group playoffs, beginning Friday in New Delhi.
