The son of a tennis coach, Feliciano Lopez is one of the few men on the ATP tour who is capable of playing consistent serve-and-volley tennis. A left-hander with a sliding slice serve, Lopez won his first doubles title in Mallorca in 2001 and his first singles trophy in Vienna in 2004. The following year, Lopez became the first Spaniard since Manuel Orantes in 1972 to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals. He claimed his first grass-court title in Eastbourne in 2013 and defended that title the following year with a victory over Richard Gasquet in the final. Lopez has been a staple on Spain’s Davis Cup team throughout his career, helping his country to titles in 2004, 2008, 2009 and 2011. Lopez became a Grand Slam champion for the first time in 2016 when he and Marc Lopez defeated Bob and Mike Bryan in the French Open doubles final.
