Marcel Granollers

Discussion in 'General Pro Player Discussion' started by MurrayMyInspiration, Oct 25, 2012.

  1. I really enjoyed his match today against Simon....He is not the most aesthetically pleasing player.. His forehand is quite western and whippy, He serves like hes in a straight jacket, Beautiful backhand though and great at the net!! He was just approaching like crazy today off his backhand side and hitting crisp volleys.. He serve and volleyed I would say 10 times today...2 in a row at 1 stage...Just putting pressure on Simon and played all the big points coming to the net...I enjoyed his perfromance and what you might assume is Spanish baseliner but hes crafty and is well able to come to net like ferrer. Nice attitude, polite guy. I like him :) Anyone else agree/disagree?

    I enjoyed the match as well, but I can't like the guy.

    His grunting are annoying in a way that make me want to kill him to see if he produce screams louder than hitting 10mph forehands.

    I remember watching Marcel play Cilic earlier this year. His grunting was so annoying that I was happy Cilic won.

    However, his compact backhand does look nice and he definitely has good hands at net, even on clay.

    I am not annoyed by grunts for some reason, as long as I'm entertained by their game/match.

    He stands in for Rafa as Marc's doubles partner for tournaments not in IW or the Middle East. He cracked the Top Ten in doubles and the Top Five for doubles teams, should be going to WTF.

    Marcel is gorgeous he's definitely another member of the hot Spanish guys on the ATP Tour. It seems the most attractive men on the ATP Tour are all from Spain! I love Marcel's grunt it is very sexy!!!

    He's got game but his grunting against Paul Henri Matthau at RG was ridiculous.
