He started to play tennis at the age of 8. When he was 15, he moved to Barcelona and, at 17 to Villena in Alicate, where he spent nine months in Equelite at Juan Carlos Ferrero’s Academy.
It is known that he supports Valencia’s soccer team. He not only reads but keeps every book he has read. He is married to Marta and his son Leo was born last year. Agassi was his idol when he was younger, and if he was losing a match he couldn’t serve because of the tears in his eyes.
His statistics are simply amazing: he played 50 consecutive Grand Slams before he retire from Wimbledon in 2015 ( due to an injury in the left elbow), he won 3 Davis Cups, he was Top 20 during eleven seasons (Top 10 during seven, Top 5 during 4) only over came by Rafa Nadal in Spanish tennis history, his best ranking was number 3 in the world.

He played more tan a thousand matches with a record of 727 -372 W -L (145 victories in Grand Slams). He faced 7 170 break points with his service and saved 60% of them.
He is simply Ferrer. Humble by nature. Always looking down without looking for any advantage.
His numbers are amazing and unreachable. He will keep fighting until the end.
