The Spaniard's fourth Mexican crown came with a 6-3 7-5 success against the in-form Japanese star and gave him a seasonal record of 18-1.

It was also a 24th career title for Ferrer, who never really looked in trouble.

He took the opening set after a 3-1 lead and then took a 3-0 advantage in the second.

Nishikori - who rises to a best four in the world - came back at him but Ferrer broke again and took the match in an hour and 49 minutes.

In the women's draw, Timea Bacsinszky lifted a first WTA title since 2009 after a four-year absence from the sport.

The fifth seed beat Caroline Garcia 6-3 6-0, reeling off eight games in a row in the process.

"Maybe I'm like a good wine - with time, I'm better," she told the WTA's official website.

"But seriously, I almost stopped playing in 2013. The road was long and still is long, but I've been working hard and I'm really proud."
