MARRAKECH, Morocco (AP) — World No. 355 Pablo Andujar of Spain upset British's No. 1 player Kyle Edmund 6-2, 6-2 in the final of the Grand Prix Hassan II on Sunday. The Spaniard also won this event in 2011 and 2012.

Due to three elbow surgeries, Andujar's ranking fell drastically but is getting back on the right track.

Edmund, who was the No. 2 seed, was aiming for his first ATP Career title. Despite the loss, the 23-year-old is having a great start of 2018 after reaching his first Grand Slam semifinal at the Australian Open in January.
