Marc López Tarrés (Catalan: [ˈmark ˈɫopes təˈres], Spanish: [ˈmark ˈlopeθ taˈres]; born 31 July 1982) is a professional male tennis player from Spain, who started playing tennis at the age of 8 years old and became professional in 1999.

Professional career[edit]

2004[edit]

Although in his beginnings López did not achieve very good results playing doubles, in the last years he has won several doubles titles in Challengers and his best performance in an ATP tournament was in this modality. That was in 2004, when he reached the final of the Open de Tenis Comunidad Valenciana partnering with his friend and countryman Feliciano López.

2008[edit]

In April 2008 in Barcelona, López beat No. 141 Yuri Schukin to qualify into the ATP main draw, where he beat No. 68 Ivo Minář before losing to No. 37 Juan Ignacio Chela. In May, he made the main draw of the 2008 French Open as a Lucky Loser after beating No. 124 Andreas Beck.

2012[edit]

At the BNP Paribas Masters in Indian Wells, CA, Marc along with fellow Spaniard, Rafael Nadal, won the doubles final 6–2, 7–6(3). They defeated Americans John Isner and Sam Querrey.
