Grand Prix Hassan II In Marrakech Postponed

Rescheduling the tournament later in the year will be considered

Due to COVID-19, the 2021 edition of the Grand Prix Hassan II has been postponed from its traditional April date. Consideration will be given to rescheduling the tournament later in the year.

Last year's event was cancelled due to the pandemic. Frenchman Benoit Paire won the most recent edition of the tournament in 2019.

The Grand Prix Hassan II was inaugurated as an ATP Challenger Tour event in 1984 and as an ATP Tour tournament in 1990. The tournament is entirely funded by Morocco's King Mohammed VI. Marrakech, relocated from Casablanca in 2016, is the only ATP Tour stop on the African continent.

Two Moroccans have won the title in their home country: Hicham Arazi in 1997 and Younes El Aynaoui in 2002.
