Kuala Lumpur, Oct 4 (IANS) World No.8 David Ferrer claimed the Malaysian Open title here on Sunday, defeating his Spanish compatriot Feliciano Lopez in the final between the top two seeds. The 33-year-old Spaniard Ferrer picked up his fourth title of the season and 25th career title in a 93-minute game, reports Xinhua. 

“I am very happy. I played well during the match — I served well, I received well and I played consistently. I’m very happy with my game. It’s important for my game to serve well because if I don’t, it will be difficult against Feliciano because he pressures a lot at the net. This year is a good year — I won all my finals,” said Ferrer. 

In the doubles final, second seeds Treat Huey of the Philippines and Henri Kontinen of Finland picked up their second title in as many weeks with a 7-6 (4), 6-2 victory over top seeds Raven Klaasen and Rajeev Ram.
