CASABLANCA, Morocco, April 27 (UPI) -- Former runner-up Dominik Hrbaty of Slovakia Thursday beat wild card Slimane Saoudi in the second round of the Grand Prix Hassan II in Casablanca, Morocco.

The scores in the victory over his Algerian opponent were 7-5, 7-6 (7-2).

Other winners were second-seeded Jose Acasuso of Argentina; unseeded Albert Montanes of Spain, who led seventh-seeded Nicolas Massu, 6-1, 2-1, when Massu was forced to retire due to an abdominal injury; and No. 8 seed Paul-Henri Mathieu of France.

Massu was beaten by Italian Daniele Bracciali in last year's final.

Friday's quarterfinals will pit the top-seeded Hrbaty against Montanes, Acasuso against Mathieu, third-seeded Julien Benneteau of France against No. 5 and fellow Frenchman Marc Gicquel, and Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo of Spain will play Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean, the 2000 Casablanca runner-up.
