Germán López Montoya (born 29 December 1971) is a former professional tennis player from Spain.[1]

Career[edit]

Lopez was runner-up in the 18 and Under category of the 1989 Orange Bowl, losing the final to Fernando Meligeni.

The Spaniard made his first Grand Slam appearance in the 1991 French Open and in the opening round lost to Cristiano Caratti, despite winning the first two sets. He played in three further Grand Slam tournaments during his career, all in 1992. Only once did he make the second round, in the 1992 French Open, where he defeated Tomas Carbonell.[2]

He reached the quarter-finals at Madrid, Stuttgart and Guaruja in 1991. His victory over world number 10 Emilio Sánchez in Stuttgart was the biggest win of his career. The following year he made the final of the Grand Prix Hassan II event in Casablanca, after a comprehensive semi-final win over Bart Wuyts when he didn't drop a single game. He won the first set of the final against Guillermo Pérez-Roldán but was unable to win the title. Also in 1992, Lopez was a semi-finalist in San Marino and Bordeaux.[3]

As a doubles player he won one Challenger tournament and reached a highest ranking of 210.
