David Ferrer was honored on Tuesday at the Philippe Chatrier track at Roland Garros, a beaten land that he claimed to be treading "for the last time" , a few weeks after having ended his professional career at the Mutua Madrid Open. "I will never forget you," said the Alicante native.

"It has been 17 years that have gone by very quickly," added Ferru, who became a finalist in the 2013 edition, falling in three sets against Nadal. Precisely before the Balearic's match against Nishikori, the tribute to Ferrer took place, which received the applause of the public gathered at the Chatrier and a commemorative trophy from Bernard Giudicelli, president of the French Tennis Federation, and the director of Roland Garros Guy Forget.

"I have a lot of emotions, it's been my favorite tournament all my life, I've seen all the players who have been able to win in this central court grow up, for me it's a dream," said Jávea. "I will miss it very much to be here again and everything related to Roland Garros This is going to be the last time I stepped on this center, I enjoyed it a lot, I will not forget you" closed.
