ATP Marrakech Players 2019

The Grand Prix Hassan II promises another strong field for its 2019 edition when it begins on Monday 8 April.

Last year's finalist Kyle Edmund returns 12 months after finishing runner-up to Pablo Andujar to see if he can go one better. Edmund, an Australian Open semifinalist in 2018, won his first and so far only ATP Tour title in Antwerp last October after making his first ATP Tour final at the 250-level Grand Prix Hassan II. The British no. 1's start to the season was marred by a knee injury but he won the Indian Wells Challenger in March and looks set for a strong challenge on the clay.

Former top-10 player Pablo Carreno Busta has also had his issues with injuries, and has only played one event since reaching the round of 16 at the Australian Open. But the former US Open semifinalist has three ATP Tour titles to his credit and will be a very real threat to become the latest Spanish champion at the Grand Prix Hassan II, following in the footsteps of compatriots Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Robredo, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and three-time winner Pablo Andujar.

Edmund and Carreno Busta are due to be joined by charismatic left-handed Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco, another former top-10 player, and by the equally experienced and perpetually dangerous Gilles Simon (champion at the Grand Prix Hassan II in 2008) and Philipp Kohlschreiber, who reminded everyone what a threat he can be with his recent victory over Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells. Both Simon and Kohlschreiber have won numerous clay-court titles.

Tunisia's Malek Jaziri is sure to attract a significant share of local support in Morocco, while those who like spotting future stars of the game will be very excited at the presence in the field of two youngsters who have recently made quite an impact: Big-serving Pole Hubert Hurkacz, who is racing up the rankings after reaching the quarterfinals of the Indian Wells Masters; and Felix Auger-Aliassime, the 18-year-old Canadian who became the youngest man ever to make the Miami Masters semifinals. With such a varied blend of generations, established names clashing with next big things, the 2019 Grand Prix Hassan II promises to be better than ever as it begins in Morocco on Monday 8 April.

About the Grand Prix Hassan II

Africa’s only ATP World Tour event relocated from Casablanca to Marrakech in 2016 after a 21-year sojourn in Morocco’s largest port city, but the Grand Prix Hassan II continues to enjoy the same crucial position in the tennis calendar. 

With the major hard-court events of the spring US swing, the Indian Wells and Miami Masters, in the books, the tennis world’s attention turns to red clay and the trio of major upcoming clay events held throughout April, May and early June: The Mutua Madrid Open, the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome and the French Open at Roland Garros in Paris. Every player wants his or her game to be at its peak for those events so it’s crucial for the tennis stars to find their feet of clay as quickly as possible and the Grand Prix Hassan II is a popular destination for those heading back from the USA before the European clay-court season starts in earnest at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

For the first six years of its existence the Grand Prix Hassan II was part of the Challenger Tour but celebrated its first year as an ATP World Tour event in 1990 when Thomas Muster won the title. Since then, two African players have won the title: Hicham Arazi in 1997 and Younes El Aynaoui in 2002.

The usual suspects have dominated the list of ATP Marrakech winners, however, with Spanish and French players exercising an almost total hegemony over the title in the last decade. Julien Boutter, Paul-Henri Mathieu and Gilles Simon of France have all won the title since 2003, with former world no. 1 and French Open champion Spain’s Juan Carlos Ferrero winning the 12th title of his glittering career in Casablanca in 2009. 

Ferrero would be followed by fellow Spanish winners Pablo Andujar (2011-12), Tommy Robredo (2013) and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (2014), meaning that in the past seven years at the Grand Prix Hassan II, only two non-Spanish men have won the title: Stan Wawrinka in 2010, who would go on to win the 2014 Australian Open and 2015 French Open titles, and the talented, left-handed Slovakian Martin Klizan in 2015, who defeated Dustin Brown, Nicolas Almagro and Daniel Gimeno-Traver to claim the prized Casablanca title. Federico Delbonis, who would play a crucial role in Argentina's Davis Cup victory in 2016, claimed the title that year when he beat rising Croatian star Borna Coric in the final. Coric eventually got his hands on the trophy in 2017, saving five match points before beating Philip Kohlschreiber for his first career title.

Pablo Andujar became the first man in the history of the Grand Prix Hassan II to win three titles when he lifted the trophy after a six-year hiatus in 2018, having defeated Kyle Edmund - the first British player to reach the final.
