What’s in the news
David Ferrer has revealed that this year’s US Open is likely to be his last ever Grand Slam.

The 36-year-old and former world number three is actively winding down his career after 18 years on the ATP Tour.

He had an unhappy Rogers Cup, losing to Bradley Klahn in the straight sets – the first time he has ever lost to a qualifier in a Masters 1000 tournament.

And he’s now revealed that the US Open will likely be his last major before retiring on home soil back in Spain.

That would technically mean that the Australian Open is an option for him, but it appears that it is unlikely to tempt him.
