Granollers-Pujol turns 21 today.

He's a slow-and-steady climber who probably isn't going to be a top player, but I think he has a good shot at the top 100.

For what it's worth, he's the fourth-highest ranked player born in 1986 behind Nadal, Gasquet, and Monfils. That may just mean that year lacks significant depth in talent, but it's interesting nonetheless, if only to underscore how good Gasquet and Nadal have been since they've established themselves for years while some of their peers are only just now breaking into the ATP Tour.

simon should have defended his final no more progress!

Marcel won the Junior Davis Cup with Rafa Nadal.
He seemed to be a Futures player but finally is reaching good results.
He is also Top-80 in ATP Doubles Rabking, has won several Doubles Challengers.

Wow well done to this guy :) :) I'd have thought Gilles could've taken him though but you know, this happens doesn't it.

He had a pretty good year last year, but now finally something in an ATP-level event :)

After you see this you'll remember Marcel Granollers-Pujol forever and his screams of passion will haunt you even in your dreams and nightmares
and apparently Andy Murray schooled him on clay :devil:

I've been a big fan of Marcel for a long time, and I'm really happy about this win. :D

Marcel :yeah:

(but I'm sad about Gilles losing, of course... and sad for the $15000 vcash it lost me :sobbing: :tape: )
