Career

2006: Breaking top 200

Granollers made the first round of the Wimbledon tournament in 2006, but lost to Andrei Pavel. In the qualifying rounds, he beat Stéphane Robert, Konstantinos Economidis and Marco Chiudinelli.[3]

2007: Breaking top 150

In 2007, Granollers won the Naples and Rome Challengers for doubles with Flavio Cipolla, and the Maspalomas Challenger for doubles with Marc López. At the 2007 French Open, he made the second round of the men's doubles tournament with Feliciano López before they lost in three close sets to the number 4 seeds Fabrice Santoro and Nenad Zimonjić, who won 7–5, 1–6, 6–4. He lost at the French and Wimbledon Championships both times in the second round of qualifying for the main draws.

2008: Breaking top 60 & first singles title

2008 saw Granollers qualify for the Australian Open Singles Draw, but lost to Evgeny Korolev in straight sets in the first round.[4] He reached the quarterfinals of the 2008 Abierto Mexicano Telcel in Acapulco, Mexico, an International Series Gold tournament, before losing to José Acasuso 7–6, 6–3. On 20 April, he won his first ATP singles title at the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships, defeating World No. 8 James Blake in the final.[5] He had saved two match points in the semifinals.[6] The previous day, he and Pablo Cuevas lost in the doubles final. Following Rafael Nadal's announcement that he would not play the Davis Cup Final at Argentina on 21–23 November, Spain's Captain Emilio Sánchez announced that Marcel Granollers would replace Nadal. This was Granollers' first Davis Cup appearance, although he did not play any matches.

2009: Breaking top 45

In 2009, Granollers won three ATP doubles titles at the 2009 Brasil Open, the 2009 Copa Telmex, and the 2009 Kremlin Cup, teaming up with Tommy Robredo, Alberto Martín, and Pablo Cuevas respectively.

2010

In the first round of the 2010 Australian Open, Granollers pulled off a remarkable comeback when he recovered from 2 sets down against world no.8 and French Open finalist, Robin Söderling. He then lost to Alejandro Falla in the 2nd round.

2011: Breaking top 30

Granollers lost in the first round of the Australian Open to eventual champion Novak Djokovic, and he didn't win consecutive matches until the 2011 Miami Masters, where he got to the fourth round.[7] In July, he beat Stanislas Wawrinka, Mikhail Youzhny, and Fernando Verdasco to win his first title of the year and his second career title at the Swiss Open.[8][9] In the US Open, he reached the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career, to break into the Top 30.[10] In November, Granollers claimed the title at the Valencia Open 500 by defeating Juan Mónaco in three sets and said, "Winning here has been the biggest achievement in my whole career."[11] He beat four Top 20 players: Alexandr Dolgopolov, Marin Čilić, Gaël Monfils and Juan Martín del Potro en route to the final at the ATP World Tour 500 tournament.[11] Granollers played for the victorious Spain Davis Cup team in 2011, losing the doubles rubber (with Fernando Verdasco) in the quarter final against United States.[12]

2012: Breaking top 20

Marcel Granollers reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time at French Open, losing to David Ferrer in three straight sets.[13] Granollers lost to Marin Čilić in the final match of Croatia Open on 15 July 2012.[14] Playing doubles alongside countryman Marc López, he went 3–4 in finals, winning titles at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, Swiss Open and ATP World Tour Finals. Granollers and Lopez were the first Spanish pair to play at the season-ending championships since Sergio Casal and Emilio Sánchez in 1994.[15] He also partnered López at the 2012 Summer Olympics.[16]

2013: Fourth singles title

Granollers made it to the fourth round of the US Open for the first time, and he lost to top-seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets.

2014: US & French Open doubles runner-ups

In 2014, he had a very consistent doubles performances at the French & US Open, making the finals at both events.

2015-present

Granollers suffered a significant loss in form, with only one tour-level late round appearance: the semifinals in Zagreb Indoors losing to Andreas Seppi. His year-end ranking dropped to No. 84. He reached the Quarterfinals of the 2016 Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters before losing to Gaël Monfils in straight sets; he was lucky to be in the draw as he was only in due to being a lucky loser.

Playing style

Granollers' good serve and net skills account for his excellent doubles record. His comparatively technically weak groundstrokes are underpowered with low takebacks on both wings but they provide a decent defensive framework.[17] He is also known for his heavy grunting, so much as to result in ridicule and accusations of gamesmanship due to its loud volume and questionable timing during matches.[18][19][20]
