In the meantime, let us take a look at how the 2018 edition of the tournament turned out to be.
The defending champion in the 2018 ATP Marrakech was the Croatian Borna Coric, but he withdrew from the event before it began. Consequently, the top seed went to Albert Ramos Vinolas while the second seed was awarded to Kyle Edmund.
They were, in turn, joined by the likes of Richard Gasquet, Philipp Kohlschreiber, Robin Haase, Mischa Zverev, Alexandr Dolgopolov, and Benoit Paire. Interestingly enough, among these top eight seeds, four fell in the first round and two fell in the second round.
The only seeded players present in the quarterfinals were Gasquet and Edmund. The two met in the semis and it was the young Brit who sailed to the final on the back of a 6-3, 6-4 win over the Frenchman. In the opposite half of the bracket, Pablo Andujar was shaking things up as he swiftly made his way to the semifinal.
Over there, the Spaniard faced Joao Sousa, whom he dispatched comfortably with 6-4. 6-4. The final match was played between Andujar and Edmund, and it was the unseeded 32-year-old who won the tournament. That was Andujar’s third Grand Prix Hassan title, with the other two coming in the Casablanca editions of the tournament.
