David Ferrer Player Profile
David Ferrer of Spain is an outside bet for Wimbledon
David Ferrer has enjoyed a productive 2015 so far but the search for a first Grand Slam continues.
Always associated among the world's top 10 players, the Spanish clay court specialist has remained a threat to anybody who opposes him but has never captured one of tennis' top prizes.
Winning tournaments in Qatar, Rio de Janiero and Acapulco have will done his confidence no harm ahead of Wimbledon - and neither will his newfound ranking of Spain's No 1 after Rafael Nadal's decline.
The gritty, battling qualities of the Spaniard will please a British crowd who will appreciate his efforts but will it be enough to challenge the elite players? He lost in two sets to Novak Djokovic in Rome and four sets to Andy Murray at the French Open so owes them something.
The eighth seed will know that, at 33-years-old, time is running out to make his mark in the latter stages of a Grand Slam.
