Top seed: Grigor Dimitrov
Defending champion: Federico Delbonis
Grand Prix Hassan II gives a good chance for the players out of top 20 to compete on clay. Those who failed to gain good form before the start of the clay portion of the season can now struggle for the ATP 250 title.
Weather and Courts
Climate conditions in Marrakech are very specific and are mostly favorable for clay players. This week 28-32 °C and no precipitation are expected. Again, classical clay players who apply topspin shorts will benefit out of it. Slow clay will give them additional advantage.
The draw in Marrakech is always very close, the championship battle is quite equal and the champions change every single year. In 2016 Federico Delbonis from Argentine claimed the title, in 2015 – Martin Klizan. Before that, the Spanish players dominated on the Moroccan courts.
Spain is represented by many big names this year: Albert Ramos-Vinolas, Nicolas Almagro, Tommy Robredo, Marcel Granollers. The event favors the Spaniards but this year they don’t stand out of the entire crowd. Paolo Lorenzi, Benoit Paire, Diego Schwartzman, Philipp Kohlschreiber should also be competitive.
We’d like to single out Federico Delbonis who is to defend the title. The Argentine is red-hot and should take the event seriously. He looked very solid at the Masters events.
Grigor Dimitrov was invited to participate in the event. The Bulgarian is eager to get big wins and will attract maximum attention. He’s definitely among the favorites, but the surface is not the most favorable for him.
