David Ferrer claims that his second-round defeat at the Barcelona Open to Dmitry Tursunov was one of the worst performances of his career.

David Ferrer has described his second-round defeat at the Barcelona Open to Dmitry Tursunov as one of his worst performances in recent years.

The world number four and top seed was beaten 7-5 3-6 6-1 by the Russian qualifier on Wednesday in what was a major upset at the tournament.

"I couldn't seem to hurt him with my shots," Ferrer is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "It was a strange match mentally and physically.

"This was a match to forget - probably one of the worst I've played in recent years."

Tursunov's reward for beating Ferrer is a third-round encounter with Thomas Bellucci.
