Top-seeded David Ferrer beat unseeded Philipp Petzschner 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday to win the Unicef Open grass-court tournament for the second time, while Nadia Petrova defeated Urszula Radwanska 6-4, 6-3 to take the women's title.

Ferrer, the 2008 champion, broke the German twice in the opening set and once in the second, closing the match by winning a game at love to comfortably earn a victory at the Wimbledon warm-up.

''Now I want to enjoy this moment and tomorrow I will focus on Wimbledon,'' Ferrer said. ''I played my best match of the week.''

Ferrer is seeded seventh at Wimbledon, and the Spaniard faces a first-round match against Germany's Dustin Brown.

The eighth-seeded Petrova dropped her first service game to Radwanska, but the Russian recovered to take the first set 6-4, breaking the unseeded Pole at love in the set's final game.

The powerful Petrova, who is seeded 20th at Wimbledon, quickly broke in the second set and held on to win 6-3.
