After losing his first three matches of the season in Australia, including a tough four-setter to Hewitt at AO, he made the semis of the Heilbronn challenger, including the 6-1 6-4 defeat of Berrer in the semis. But after that, he lost four straight MD matches before winning his first round match in Miami 6-3 7-5 over Cipolla, his first career Masters 1000 victory
He lost in the second round to Gasquet 3-6 7-6(6) 2-6 and has a 5-8 overall record this season. Unfortunately ATP hardcourts have been a little bit tough for Cedi but hopefully with the tour turning to clay it will bring him better results. His next scheduled tournament is in Casablanca in two weeks from this Monday. Hopefully this little break will help Cedi clear his head of some of the losses so far this season and prepare fully for the upcoming clay season!
