Ferrer lost in the first round in Beijing and skipped the Shanghai Masters last week through injury.

In 2012, the 30-year-old Valencia native has won a career-high five titles on three different surfaces, including Auckland, ‘s-Hertogenbosch,  Buenos Aires, Acapulco and Bastad.

“I’m  very happy because to qualify again is a great achievement,” said Ferrer in a statement. “It’s always one of my goals at the beginning of each year.

The point race now has three weeks remaining. with ATP 250 tournaments this week: the Kremlin Cup in Moscow, the If Stockholm Open and the Erste Bank Open in Vienna. Tomas Berdych, Juan Martin del Potro and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga currently hold down the final three qualifying spots with all three playing this week.
