Morocco, Rabat Future: Hicham Arazi comes back

I am not sure if this is a one-off comeback, or whether he is seriously coming back to the tour, but Hicham is in the draw of the Rabat F2 Future:

Quote:
Kamil Capkovic SVK [8] vs. Ali El Alaoui MAR [Q]
Hicham Arazi MAR [WC]
vs. Ilya Marchenko UKR [Q]
Marek Semjan SVK [Q]
vs. Juan-Martin Aranguren ARG
Karim Maamoun EGY vs. Torsten Popp GER [4]
Seeing as the Rabat Challenger is next week, I am guessing he will play there too and get a WC Anyways, the draw is pretty tough, but he oculd win a few matches.

No, but he will play the Rabat Challenger. Younes did play a Future this week though, in Oujda (Morocco F1) and won it.

He beat Victor Crivoi in the final 0-6 3-6

Re: Morocco, Rabat Future: Hicham Arazi comes back

Wow, Arazi disappeared really quickly a few years ago while he was still a steady top50 player. I'm surprised to see him back at any level but looking at his stats from the ATP site, it seems Arazi did the Morocco Futures circuit last year too with no further appearances anywhere after that. Maybe Casablanca or one of the lesser clay challengers will give him a WC but I wouldn't count on that.

Best of luck for:

Re: Morocco, Rabat Future: Hicham Arazi comes back

He has done well Marchenko is doing reasonably in Futures, and Capkovic is basically a Challenger-level player. To beat them like that shows that Arazi still has what it takes

Go Arazi - he has been a great entertainer... awesome talent...

Loved his matches at Roland Garros over the years.
