Feliciano López Díaz-Guerra (Spanish pronunciation: [feliˈθjano ˈlopeθ ˈdi.aθ ˈgera]; born 20 September 1981) is a professional tennis player on the ATP Tour. He began life in Toledo and now lives in the Spanish capital, Madrid. Lopez achieved his career-high singles ranking of world no. 12 in March 2015.[2] Currently, he has appeared in more consecutive majors than anyone, dating back to the 2002 French Open.

In 2005, he was the first male Spanish tennis player to reach the quarterfinals of Wimbledon after 1972, when Manuel Orantes reached the semifinals. He repeated the feat in 2008 and 2011. Lopez defeated Tim Henman at the 2007 Wimbledon second round in what would be Henman's last Wimbledon match. Throughout his career, he has played in the most five-set matches that have gone beyond 6–6, his longest fifth set being 16–14 at the 2009 Australian Open against Gilles Müller.

Playing style

Lopez is left-handed and uses a single-handed backhand. He is known for his strong serve and ability to play balls repeatedly on the baseline, and is additionally a confident net player and has been known to serve and volley. Unlike most Spanish players, who almost always prefer clay courts due to the popularity of that surface in their country, Lopez is an exceptionally strong grass-court player, with three quarterfinal runs at Wimbledon (his strongest Grand Slam showing), as well as a title on grass at the Aegon International in 2013, which he successfully defended in 2014. This is due in part to his more traditional playing style, playing more like grass-court legends Pete Sampras and Roger Federer than fellow-Spaniard Rafael Nadal. This traditional arsenal includes a big serve and a willingness to come in to the net.
