Salvador Navarro-Gutierrez (born 8 January 1977) is a former professional tennis player from Spain.[1]


Navarro qualified for his only Grand Slam in 1997, at the French Open.[2] He won his opening round match against countryman Marcos Aurelio Gorriz, in five sets, but would lose to Jan Siemerink in the second round.[2]

He never made a quarter-final during his singles career on the ATP Tour but did have a win over world number 27 Sébastien Grosjean at the 2000 Torneo Godó, held in his hometown of Barcelona.[2]

The right-hander also played doubles and was a semi-finalist, with partner Óscar Hernández, in the 2003 CAM Open Comunidad Valenciana.[2] Despite only entering the tournament after another team withdrew, the Spanish pairing were able to upset third seeds Gastón Etlis and Martin Rodríguez in the quarter-finals.[2]
