Before attending Stanford, David was a US Open Boys' Doubles champion with eventual Stanford teammate K. J. Hippensteel in 1998.
He first teamed up with fellow American Scott Lipsky in doubles in college. They finished their college career ranked as the #2 team in the nation, and they extended their partnership into their pro careers. In 2007, Martin and Lipsky qualified for the 2007 Wimbledon men's doubles tournament, where the pair lost in the third round. He and Lipsky reached the ATP Los Angeles men's doubles final in 2007, where the team lost in straight sets to the top-ranked Bob and Mike Bryan. Lipsky and Martin captured their first ATP title in February 2008 indoor on hard courts at the SAP Open in San Jose, defeating the number one ranked doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan, 7–6(4), 7–5 at HP Pavilion in the finals that matched former stars for Stanford.
His career-high doubles ranking was World No. 38, achieved in May 2008.
