Casablanca, Morocco (Sports Network) - Tommy Robredo of Spain claimed his 10th clay-court trophy on Sunday at the Moroccan Grand Prix, outlasting South Africa's Kevin Anderson by a 7-6 (8-6), 4-6, 6-3 margin.

Robredo won a tournament for the first time since capturing the Santiago crown in February 2011. He owns a career record of 11-7 in finals.

The 30-year-old Robredo saved all four break points he faced in the final set, helping him become the seventh different Spaniard to lift the trophy here.

Anderson fell to 2-3 all-time in title matches, including a loss to Bernard Tomic in the Sydney season-opener this year. He was playing in a tour-level final on clay for the first time.

Robredo, who is working his way back from a leg injury that sidelined him for five months last year, played Anderson for the first time.
