Ferrer, who last week dumped his longtime coach Javier Piles, beat Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 7-5, 6-1. Murray, who hadnt played since Davis Cup in mid-September because of a back complaint, kept pace with Tsonga until 5-5. Even to that point, Murrays rustiness was obvious with accumulating unforced errors. After Tsonga broke Murray for the first time, he stayed in charge. "I was feeling fine with my body and the knee, and this win over someone like Murray is going to give me great confidence as I start the new season," Tsonga said. Murray, who will take on Wawrinka for fifth place on Friday, said: "The court was very quick and needed quick reaction. Tsonga was definitely sharper." Zapatillas Saucony España .

In fact, Moyes considers the Community Shield -- collected on Sunday after United beat Wigan 2-0 -- to be the 50th and final title of Alex Fergusons illustrious managerial career that ended in May. "It was his team that won the Premier League by (11) points last season so todays is really Sir Alexs (win)," Moyes said after the clash of the league and FA Cup winners at Wembley Stadium. "The ones going forward will be down to me. So big thank you for Sir Alex getting me into this position." For the former Everton manager, who was hand-picked by Ferguson to succeed him after nearly 27 years at Old Trafford, the traditional curtain-raiser to the English season was all about avoiding embarrassment. And Robin van Persies double against the FA Cup winners will lift some of the anxieties around United following a lacklustre run of pre-season results before its Premier League title defence begins next weekend. "Ive been really impressed with Robin," Moyes said. "Hes been easy to work with. Hes been really receptive and helpful." The sixth-minute header and second-half deflected strike reinforced Van Persies status as Uniteds leading striker during Wayne Rooneys absence. The future of Rooney was the biggest issue Ferguson left Moyes to resolve. The former Everton manager has been steadfast through an off-season of agitating by the unsettled striker that he would not be sold, with two bids from Chelsea rejected. Rooney was ruled out of all the official preseason fixtures and Sundays match due to hamstring and shoulder problems. But, adding to the mystery, Moyes said that while Rooney is in line to play for England against Scotland on Wednesday, hes unlikely to be fit for Uniteds Premier League opener at Swansea on Saturday. "I dont see why you think thats confusing," Moyes said at a post-match media conference dominated by questions about Rooneys future. Moyes insisted that he "didnt fall out with Wayne." The reason for Rooneys frustration seems to be Van Persie, with the Netherlands striker moving above him in the pecking order since joining a year ago from Arsenal. Zapatillas Saucony Rebajas. And Van Persie took just six minutes to find the net at a sun-drenched Wembley in north London. After Van Persie sent the ball to Evra on the left flank, the left back crossed the ball back to the forward in the penalty area to head past goalkeeper Scott Carson. It was game over, with Wigan rarely posing a threat. Winning the FA Cup was the high point for Wigan last season, with its first major trophy success followed by relegation from the Premier League. It was Moyes going to United that led to Wigan losing manager Roberto Martinez after the cup triumph. After Martinez headed to Everton, Owen Coyle was hired by Wigan. The League Championship season is already under way, and returning to the worlds richest league is Coyles priority, even with a Europa League campaign to look forward to, starting in September. The couple of opportunities Wigan did have to equalize were squandered against the 20-time English champions. After James McClean worked his way down the left flank, Grant Holt couldnt get on the end of his cross. And just before half time, Leon Barnetts header was off-target. After the tour of Asia and Australia that yielded just two wins this was a trouble-free preparation for the season for United. "We looked a lot better today," midfielder Michael Carrick said. Although it was a routine victory, the lack of spark highlighted Uniteds failure to reinforce the squad, with moves for Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara both faltering. Instead, Van Persies goals served as a reminder of the success of Ferguson a year ago in prizing a top asset from a fierce rival. Although quiet after the first goal he sprang into life again to net again just before the hour. Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck did the hard work in carving out the opportunity, and the low strike from Van Persie was heading on target but landed in the net after taking a deflection off James Perch past Scott Carson. And, for the first time in Uniteds history, a manager collected a trophy in his first season. What was missing in the game was a disputed goal. This would have been the first time in English football history when the referee could defer to goal-line technology with Hawk-Eyes 14 cameras in the ground following FIFA approval. ' ' '
