Tsonga says in L'Equipe today he wants to play there because he needs matches before the French Open.

Weak entry list, Calleri or Montanes would probably win this.

Wild cards for Gasquet and Tsonga. The field is a lot better with a top 10 and a top 15 player.

Poor entry list but really, who wants to go all the way to Morocco a week before the French Open starts?

I'll be shocked if he gets it, but Simon also asked for a WC.
And Tsonga confirms in L'Equipe he'll play here.
