Just so the fans know he is playing again ;)

He was given a WC and is the top seed. First round win over Qualifier Denis Molcianov, 6-4 6-1, and a second round win of Manuel Jorquera of Italy, 6-2 6-7 6-4.

Quarter final match against Karim Mamoun of Egypt, the number six seed.

Deboogle!.

Maybe a meeting with D. Young will propel him to AO '03 form.

Well 2006 is far from being a bad year for Younes. He continues his progression in the rankings at 182 this week. He defeated Grosjean in Doha 6/4 6/4 before losing to Tursunov 7/6 6/2 and defeated Moodie in Dubai before withdrawing due to personal reasons (he could have played Nadal in R2). Then started practicing on clay and reached QF in the St Brieuc challenger losing to Peter Wessels 7/6 6/3.
He's now playing in a future in his home tennis club in Rabat and will face Mamoun from Egypt in QF but apparantly he was not in a good day psychologically cause it seems he won't get a WC for next week's Casablanca Open. This is very very disappointing for him and the Moroccan Tennis Federation is probably giving a WC to a young moroccan player but who has zero chance to reach R2 in main draw.
Too bad but as I know Younes, he won't surrender, he's playing in the Tunis Challenger the week after and he's gonna prove them wrong.
Come On Younès, you're a true fighter and gentleman.

Rabat FU sounds like a cake walk. Why is he doing this?

Maybe if he played in Ribbit CH (French), he would meet better competition.

Score says round 2 was a tight match: I think Younes knows his level.

Here is the mail I sent to the Moroccan Tennis Federation in order for Younes to get the Wild Card (oh sorry it's in French):

A l'attention des responsables de la FRMT et du Grand Prix Hassan II

Ma surprise fut grande lorsque j'ai su dimanche 16 avril 2006 sur 2m (Al
Majalla Riyadiya) que la dernière wild card du Grand Prix Hassan II était
toujours libre.
M. Hagouch, directeur du Grand Prix, a clairement indiqué lors de
l'émission qu'une commission technique devait se réunir le mercredi 19
avril pour octroyer la wild card soit à un ancien joueur marocain soit un
jeune compatriote.
Il est évident qu'il s'agit là de Younès El Aynaoui (ancien) et de Mehdi
Ziadi ou un autre (jeune).

En tant que très grand fan du tennis et amoureux du drapeau national, je
tiens à souligner que:

1) Younès El Aynaoui est le plus grand joueur de l'histoire du tennis
national avec 4 quarts de finale en Grand Chelem et 5 titres ATP dont 1 au
Grand Prix Hassan II en 2002;

2) Malgré les nombreuses blessures qui l'ont privé de tennis durant des
années, Younès El Aynaoui a toujours su revenir au plus haut niveau grâce à
son professionnalisme et sa grande détermination. D'ailleurs, El Aynaoui
est actuellement l'incontestable numéro 1 du tennis marocain puisqu'il est
classé à la 181 ème place mondiale, très loin devant Mehdi Tahiri (numéro 2
marocain) qui est 565 ème !! De plus, Younès est actuellement en grande
forme que ce soit sur le plan physique ou tennistique. En effet, malgré
ses sorties peu nombreuses, il a pu atteindre les 1/8 de finale dans des
tournois très prestigieux à Doha ( 1 million de dollars) et Dubai ( 1
million de dollars) avec des victoires convaincantes sur des grands noms du
tennis: Sebastien Grosjean et Wesley Moodie. Il a également atteint les
1/4 de finale il y a 15 jours au Challenger de St Brieuc sur terre battue
avant de s'incliner face au coriace néerlandais Peter Wessels.

3) Il ne faut pas oublier que Younès El Aynaoui était à la 600 ème place
mondiale il y a de celà 1 an et qu'il a réussi de belles choses en fin
d'année dernière avec une victoire sur Feliciano Lopez au Masters Series de
Montreal et une 1/2 finale au Challenger d'Ukraine avec une victoire
notable sur la tête de série n° 1, le Roumain Victor Hanescu, dès lors 34
ème mondial !!

4) Pour prouver sa bonne foi, son amour envers son pays et son envie de
jouer au Grand Prix Hassan II cette année, Younès El Aynaoui nous fait
l'honneur de participer à la dernière étape des Futures du Maroc (F5 Rabat)
cette semaine et je suis persuadé qu'il offrira au public du grand tennis
avec incha allah une belle victoire en finale qui le motivera énormèment
pour faire bonne figure au Grand Prix Hassan II. En effet, malgré le très
bon classement des participants, Younès a les armes nécessaires pour
enchanter le public qui ne souhaite qu'une seule chose: voir un Marocain
aller loin dans le tableau final.

5) Aussi, permettez moi de dire, avec tous mes respects, que Ziadi ou un
autre jeune, n'a pas la moindre petite chance de remporter son match du
premier tour dans le tableau final (voire même du tableau des qualifs !!).
Ceci relève du miracle. Il en est de même pour Mehdi Tahiri, qui malgré sa
combativité, n'a pas le niveau pour rivaliser avec des joueurs classés
parmi les 90 premiers.

A mon avis, il serait plus judicieux de délivrer la Wild Card pour le
jeune marocain (Ziadi ou autre) au tableau des qualifs.

En conclusion, compte tenu du fait que:
* El Aynaoui est le plus grand joueur de l'histoire du tennis marocain;
* Il est de très loin le numéro 1 marocain (181 ème);
* Il est en excellente progression depuis 1 an ( de la 600 ème à la 181
ème);
* Il jouit d'une excellente forme physique et tennistique;
* Il est le seul à pouvoir rivaliser avec des adversaires de taille,

Younès EL AYNAOUI mérite amplement la Wild Card pour le tableau final du
Grand Prix

Bad news :sad:
I agree with you, he deserves the WC. Anyway, any chance of arising another Hicham or Younes in Morroco, pete?

Thank you for the updates, posters. :)

Keep going, Younes. You're an inspiration. :D

Oh well, we have some very good young players such as Reda El Amrani (18), Mohamed Saber (18), Anas Fettar (19), Yassine Idmbarek (19). These guys are very talented. We will follow most of them in the Qualies in Casablanca.
But for now, they're still far behind Mehdi Tahiri and Mounir El Aarej.

You forgot Rabie Chaki who qualifies for Futures events and plays them in Europe.
Also Younes is playing here because it is good practice for Casablanca and will get the wild card if he performs well.

Oh you're right, I totally forgot Rabie Chaki who's doing very well lately (semi finals in France F6 I think) and qualifying every time for the main draw.
But sorry no Wild Card for Younès in Casablanca, plus he's playing the Rabat Futures so if he reaches the final, he won't even be able te play qualies in Casablanca.
But I know he's very mad because of the WC. So if I were in his shoes, I'll try to play qualies in Casablanca, qualify and do something big in main draw. That can be the best answer to the Moroccan tennis Federation.
No news about his QF in Rabat F5 against Mamoun ??
Thanks

Wondering if he lost to play the Q in Casablanca :tape:

Maybe not, I'm not saying he did... :tape:
