Top-seeded David Ferrer beat unseeded Philipp Petzschner 6-3, 6-4 Saturday to win the Unicef Open grass-court tournament for the second time.

Ferrer broke the German's serve twice in the opening set and once in the second, closing the match with a love game to comfortably win the Wimbledon warm-up.

Ferrer, who also won the title in 2008, said he ''played his best match of the week'' to beat Petzschner.

Later Saturday, eighth-seeded Nadia Petrova of Russia was playing Urszula Radwanska in the women's final.
