David Marrero Santana (Spanish pronunciation: [daˈβið maˈreɾo sanˈtana]; born 8 April 1980 in Las Palmas, Spain) is a professional tennis player from Spain. He has achieved most of his success in doubles, winning 9 titles and reaching a career-high doubles ranking of World No. 5 in November 2013.

Professional career[edit]

2000–2007[edit]

Marrero earned his first world ranking late in 2000 as a 20-year-old, but he spent only a few weeks inside the top-500 until early 2005. By late 2005, he had made it into the top-300, but faded over the next year to close out 2006 outside the top-400. In the middle of 2007, he again inched into the top-300, but faded again to close out 2007 at No. 362.

2008[edit]

As a qualifier, Marrero reached the final of a Challenger in Chile in January, losing to No. 132 Rubén Ramírez Hidalgo after upsetting No. 272 Sebastián Decoud, No. 187 Adrián García and No. 111 Nicolás Lapentti. This result brought him back into the Top 300 at World No. 289. The very next week he gained revenge over Ramirez-Hidalgo to qualify into an ATP stop in Chile, where he again beat Garcia before losing to No. 104 Fabio Fognini in the 2nd round. In February, Marrero scored another upset, defeating World No. 114 Máximo González.

2009–2012[edit]

Marrero reached his career-high singles ranking of World No. 143 in February 2010.

2016 match fixing controversy[edit]

In January 2016, Marrero was featured in a New York Times article about his suspected match-fixing at the Australian Open.[1]
