Grand Prix Hassan II
Casablanca
Monday Summary


Singles - First Round: B Paire def. (5) D Young 4-6 7-6(7-5) 6-2
Donald Young was defending Challenger points this week, so he is going to fall several spots below his current #45. It appears he'll stay Top Fifty, but perhaps not by much. What with all the points coming off this week, this win is likely to put Benoit Paire in the Top Hundred.

Singles - First Round: G Garcia-Lopez def. (8) F Fognini 6-4 3-6 7-5
A double, or maybe a triple, surprise: Fabio Fognini likes the surface better, he is higher-ranked, and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez has been in poor form. This means no Top Fifty spot for Fognini.

Singles - First Round: I Andreev def. A Montanes 6-3 6-3
A significant upset based on current rankings, especially given how well Albert Montanes likes clay. But it's worth remembering that Montanes missed both Miami and Indian Wells. Unfortunately, this puts him on a five match losing streak.
