Wawrinka feasts on Ferrer to take Portugal title.

Stanislas Wawrinka continued a fine run of recent form by defeating top seeded David Ferrer in straight sets at the ATP Portugal Open.

Wawrinka prevailed 6-1, 6-4 in just 64 minutes. “Stan played a great match, he deserved to win,” said Ferrer, whose own game was littered with 31 unforced errors.

It took Ferrer 25 minutes to get on the scoreboard as he was pinned down by Wawrinka’s aggressive approach during an opening set.
The second set was a more competitive affair but Wawrinka secured the crucial break to move 5-4 ahead and then served out the match to seize the title.

It was the first ATP tour title for the 28-year-old Swiss since winning Chennai in 2011.
