Bastad - In-form Spaniard and top seed David Ferrer won his fifth ATP title of the year here on Sunday beating compatriot Nicolas Almagro 6-2, 6-2.

Ferrer, 30 and winning his 16th career title in what was his 31st final, eased to the title against his 26-year-old opponent, who is yet to beat him in 10 meetings.

Ferrer is enjoying one of the best seasons of his career and this was his 51st win of a season that has seen him reach the French Open semi-finals and push Andy Murray hard in the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

It saw him add this title to those he has already accrued in 's-Hertogenbosch, on grass, on the hard courts of Auckland, and his favoured clay surface like here as well as Buenos Aires and Acapulco.
