It’s Lucky No. 11 for Tommy Robredo…
The 30-year-old Spanish tenista outlasted South Africa’s Kevin Anderson 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-3 to win the Grand Prix Hassan II in Casablanca, Morocco on Sunday. The win earned him the eleventh title of his career.
In his first-ever match against Anderson, Robredo saved four break points in the final set and broke his opponent for only the second time in the match to clinch his first title since February 2011, when he won on the outdoor clay courts in Santiago, Chile.
Ten of Robredo’s titles and 15 of his 18 career finals have been on clay.
Following his five-month absence last year due to a leg injury, Robredo currently ranks at No. 72 in the world. He’d peaked at No. 5 back in August 2006.
