Right.
Sorry but I don't know how his surname should be written phonetically in English I think I've already written a couple times on MTF that this is freaking difficult surname even in Poland. Some Polish people hearing this surname would write it with 3 errors "Pszysienrzny" instead of "Przysiężny"

I try to listen to the umpires. They are "generally" correct.

I know, but I find they are "generally" more accurate than the commentators. Specially that espn crew. It's sad listening to them.

Re: In case you've ever wonderer about the right pronounciation...

Marcel Granollers, Marcel is a Catalan name (the Spanish equivalent is Marcelo, like Ríos) and should be pronounced "MarSSEL" and not "MarTHEL" like the non-Catalan speaking Spanish journalist does. The ll should also be different.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
