Monday’s action at the Grand Prix Hassan II in Marrakech was brought to an early close prior to the start of main-draw play due to heavy rain in Morocco.

Seventh seed Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and eighth seed Laslo Djere were among those on the day’s schedule, with Henri Laaksonen and Richard Gasquet set to square off on centre court.

The ATP 250 event, which opens the Tour’s clay swing alongside Houston, was set to begin main-draw play after the conclusion of four qualifying matches — none of which were completed before the rain. As a result of the delays, 12 main-draw singles matches are on the schedule for Tuesday, with top seed Felix Auger-Aliassime and second seed Daniel Evans on the centre court slate.

The Marrakech event was last played in 2019, when Benoit Paire took the title. While the Frenchman is not in the 2022 draw, former champions Pablo Andujar (2011-12, ’18) and Federico Delbonis (2016) are competing this week in North Africa.
