I think it's good that he playing Marrakesh. He's only played 3 matches in the last 7 weeks so he's well-rested. He needs to focus on regain the momentum he lost last month and the only way to do that is to play more matches. He has not entered any of the tournaments in the two weeks between Monte Carlo and Madrid so he'll have time to rest. The draw isn't too difficult so he should be able to win a couple of matches and find his clay court game.
My hope for his clay season:
Morocco: F (I'd prefer a W but even a final would be a good sign)
Monte Carlo: 3R
Madrid: QF (For some strange reason, he's had the least amount of success here among the three clay masters despite the fact that these courts should suit his game the most)
French Open: 4R
Add on a strong run at Queen's Club and he might be able to sneak a top 8 seed for Wimbledon. His biggest rivals for it are Tsonga, Berdych, and Nadal.
Let's hope for a good clay season.

Yeah is it official now
or? Anyway I'm glad with this decision because we've not watched him play much tennis lately
I enjoyed seeing Federer dominate but I need Dimitrov to win too
He has taken a wildcard into Morocco.
