I was also wondering about Seppi...I'm more inclined to say he's a defensive baseliner.

One that has me stumped is Benneteau - he doesn't strike me as being a true offensive baseliner; he can counterpunch effectively and has a relatively good net game. But I suppose he doesn't volley often enough to warrant being labelled anything other than a baseliner.
Oli Rochus isn't a defensive baseliner, he is a better version of Dudi Sela.

Benneteau is a scrapper, gets a lot back, attacks now and then with good volleys.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
