Spanish tennis player David Ferrer spoke about his attitude to the tournament in Auckland. “People always treat me as a New Zealand guy, and this is one of the reasons why I’m here. Last year I had five or six priority tournaments, and Auckland was one of them. I have been playing here in Auckland for 14 years. Of course, this is a different language, a different culture, but when I’m here, I feel very happy and comfortable. For me, it is usually very difficult to feel comfort in a country where they speak another language. I am very happy to play at one of my favorite tournaments, albeit for the last time. Of course, it will be a hard starting match with Robin Haase, I am pleased to play the central court again, “the Tour press service quotes David.
