Casablanca - Second-seeded Martin Klizan has defeated Daniel Gimeno-Traver 6-2, 6-2 in the final of the Grand Prix Hassan II on Sunday to claim his third ATP tour title.

Klizan made the most of his opponent's nervous start to break immediately.

The 41st-ranked Slovak then saved four break points in the fourth game and built a 5-1 lead.

Gimeno-Traver, who played in his first final, dropped his serve in the third game of the second set and Klizan went up 5-2. He fended off three other break points to serve out the match.

Klizan's previous titles came in St. Petersburg in 2012 and Munich last season.
