RIO DE JANEIRO: Spanish world number nine David Ferrer stormed to the ATP Rio Open title on Sunday (Monday in Manila), battering Italian Fabio Fognini 6-2, 6-3 in a one-sided final. Fognini, ranked 28 in the world, had edged out titleholder and clay king Rafael Nadal in his semifinals 24 hours earlier but had no answer to Ferrer as the second seed sped past him in one hour and 23 minutes.
