It is now official as David Ferrer, who will be 37 by then, has been granted the first wild card into the Mutua Madrid Open.
The Masters 1000 event will be held the first week of May. Ferrer, who hasn’t played since retiring in the second round of the Auckland tournament before the Australian Open, will end his career there.
He’s training. And he has a wild card into Buenos Aires next week.
Currently ranked No. 151, Ferrer’s actual ranking could fall outside the top 200 by the time Madrid rolls around. Not that it matters.
