Grand Prix Hassan II
Saturday Summary

Singles - Semifinal: (3) P Andujar def. F Cipolla 6-3 7-5
Back-to-back finals here for Pablo Andujar. He must really like this place. This will obviously let him regain a big chunk of the ground he lost last week.

Singles - Semifinal: (7) A Ramos def. I Andreev 6-3 7-6(9-7)
Igor Andreev has been running into a lot of players who aren't in the best shape, but here he finally bumped into an in-form clay player. Albert Ramos is climbing fast; with this, we show him up to #42. At the rate he is going, a Roland Garros seed seems quite possible.

Doubles - Final: Brown/Hanley def. (4) Bracciali/Fognini 7-5 6-3
Dustin Brown seems to have a bit of a doubles identity crisis. He has two titles -- one on indoor hardcourt (Metz 2010) and now this one on clay. Not exactly the normal pairing. Especially given that he was playing with Paul Hanley, himself no fan of clay. And it was their first time together, too! Hanley picks up his first title since Sydney 2011 -- and his first on clay since Hamburg 2009. So it was a bit of a breakthrough for both guys.
