Guillermo defeated Ram in the first round of Miami 6-4 7-6(9) before losing to Troicki 4-6 6-1 6-4 in the second round. With these latest results, Guillermo is 9-7 on the season heading into Casablanca. He's having a decent year all things considering, after the struggles of 2011, and is heading into his favorite time of the year, European clay. He defends quite a lot of points the next weeks so it's good he found some form now that he can hopefully continue to maintain as the tour moves to clay.
Casablanca starts the week after next so he will have had time to rest and prepare after his loss in Miami and the next week upcoming to get ready for the tournament. GL in Casablanca, Guillermo!
