Marcel Granollers is easily one of the most interesting names in the Spanish tennis circuit. The 32-year-old Barcelona native reached as high as 19th in the ATP Singles rankings, doing so back in 2012. He came as high as 4th in the Doubles rankings, too, achieving that feat in February 2013.
Across an impressive career, he’s enjoyed some serious ups and downs. From being runner-up at the US Open and French Open in 2014, at Doubles level, to enduring a frustrating period out of the Top 100, Granollers has been a fine advert for returning from adversity and always having eyes for continual, long-term improvement.
His first ATP Singles win came in 2008, when he beat James Blake at the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships. Big wins have come in the past against the likes of Fernando Verdasco at the Swiss Open, and wins over Juan Monaco at the Valencia Open.
A talented competitor with an eye for the right move, his tactically mature style of play has always made Granollers a tough competitor to overcome. Outside of the superstar era of the present, Granollers has long been seen as a symbol of progress, consistent improvement and en eye for detail.
