HEINEKEN OPEN 2014
Ferrer Climbs Auckland Harbour Bridge
Auckland, New Zealand
by ATP Staff|
Four-time former Heineken Open champion David Ferrer enjoyed the stunning views of the Auckland city skyline and North Shores as he walked up the Harbour Bridge on Monday.
The Spaniard followed in the footsteps of David Beckham, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber in climbing one of the most iconic landmark attractions in New Zealand.
“This is definitely something special that you don’t get to do every day,” said Ferrer. “It was great to take some time this morning to do this and enjoy the beautiful views from this bridge.”
The 31-year-old Ferrer is unbeaten in his past 12 matches in Auckland, winning three successive titles in 2011 (d. Nalbandian), 2012 (d. Rochus) and 2013 (d. Kohlschreiber). The Valencia native also lifted the trophy in 2007 with victory over Tommy Robredo. The top seed will open his 2014 campaign against either Federico Delbonis or a qualifier, following a bye through the first round.
