CASABLANCA, Morocco (AP)—Top-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka rallied to beat 85th-ranked Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 in the second round of the Grand Prix Hassan II on Wednesday.

The 17th-ranked Wawrinka, who won this clay-court event in 2010, had seven aces.

It's Wawrinka's third clay-court tournament this year, having reached the final before losing to David Ferrer in Buenos Aires.

Haase beat Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 6-3, 2-6, 7-5, and De Schepper eliminated Steve Darcis of Belgium 6-3, 6-4.
