Marcelo Pinheiro Davi de Melo (born September 23, 1983) is a Brazilian tennis player. He is the younger brother of Daniel Melo and grew up in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He stands at a height of 2.03 m (6 ft. 8 in.).

Primarily a doubles specialist, his career-high doubles ranking is World No. 1, which he achieved in November 2015, the best Brazilian doubles player position of all time. In 2015, Melo became the first Brazilian male ever to win a French Open doubles title, playing alongside Croatian Ivan Dodig.

Alongside regular teammate André Sá, he reached the men's doubles semifinals at Wimbledon in 2007 and the quarterfinal at the 2007 US Open. In 2009, he reached the mixed doubles final at the French Open with American Vania King, becoming the seventh Brazilian to reach the final of a Grand Slam and the first since Gustavo Kuerten. He won Roland Garros, was runner-up in Wimbledon, won 7 Masters 1000 titles and reached the doubles final on the ATP World Tour Finals. In men's doubles, Melo reached at least the semifinals of all four Grand Slams.

They came to play in the Masters Cup, in which the top eight doubles in the world compete, but they ended the year ranked No. 9 in the Champions Race; this was because Melo was injured in Wimbledon and took time to recover, and Melo and Sá had not made any major campaign in the Masters Series and Grand Slams.
