It's disorienting, isn't it? I've struggled with it too.

A lot of people don't like him, at least from his singles. More because he fits into this 'vulture' category, and people think he's a 'pusher' or a 'grinder'. I think those that do can partly be accused of tennis stereotyping. It seems that every new player from Spain these days is labelled in such a manner. I'm not saying he has the most interesting style in the world, but he wouldn't be such a great doubles player if he didn't have talent in the forecourt.

He can lose his temper very occasionally, and perhaps one could say he struts around in an arrogant manner. I think he's great, though. One of my absolute favourite players.

I despise this nomenclature.

I don't even know what "vulture" means although I see the word more and more on GM.

Lucky for Marcel that he didn't get broken there. He might never have recovered my good opinion.

It's all ridiculous. I just don't take it seriously, but it still annoys me.

Marc's on fire, yes.

But THAT was a return by Granollers.

Have to be fair to Marray and Nielsen, they played well to get the break back and now look more in control.

Not just yet. Need to wait about twenty minutes before it actually starts.
