Professional careerEdit

2001Edit

In his ATP debut at Stuttgart as a qualifier ranked 236, López defeated Richard Fromberg, eventual French Open finalist Guillermo Coria, two-time French Open winner Sergi Bruguera, and Alberto Martín en route to the semifinals, where he lost to Guillermo Cañas.

2004Edit

Although in his beginnings López did not achieve very good results playing doubles, in the last years he has won several doubles titles in Challengers and his best performance in an ATP tournament was in this modality. That was in 2004, when he reached the final of the Open de Tenis Comunidad Valenciana partnering with his friend and countryman Feliciano López.

2008Edit

In April 2008 in Barcelona, López beat No. 141 Yuri Schukin to qualify into the ATP main draw, where he beat No. 68 Ivo Minář before losing to No. 37 Juan Ignacio Chela. In May, he made the main draw of the 2008 French Open as a Lucky Loser after beating No. 124 Andreas Beck.

2010-2013Edit

In 2010, López won three doubles titles, including the Masters 1000 at Indian Wells partnering Rafael Nadal. They defeated Daniel Nestor and Serbian Nenad Zimonjić in the final. López made the year-end finals with his frequent partner Marcel Granollers. They won the tournament, defeating the Indian duo of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna in the final.

In 2012, Marc and Rafael Nadal, again won the doubles final at Indian Wells, defeating Americans John Isner and Sam Querrey. He and Granollers also won the Masters 1000 in Rome, beating Łukasz Kubot and Janko Tipsarević in the final. In Toronto, they were defeated in the final by the Bryan brothers.

In 2013, they only made one final, in Cincinnati, where they again fell to the Bryan brothers.

2014-2016Edit

In 2014, López and Granollers made two Grand Slam finals. At the French Open they were defeated by French duo Édouard Roger-Vasselin and Julien Benneteau. At the US Open, they lost the final to the Bryan brothers.

In 2015, they again made the final in Rome, but were defeated by Pablo Cuevas and fellow Spaniard David Marrero.

In 2016, López teamed with countryman Feliciano López to win the tournament in Doha, Qatar, and they also made a runner-up showing in Dubai. López won his first major at the 2016 French Open with Feliciano López.

In 2016 Rio Olympics he teamed up with Rafael Nadal to win the gold medal in the men's doubles event.

On 6 September 2016 at the US Open, López was part of the last match ever played at the old Louis Armstrong Stadium. Alongside his partner Feliciano López, they defeated the Bryan brothers (Bob and Mike) in the quarterfinals of the men's doubles tournament, the score 7–6(7–2), 4–6, 6–3.[2] The pair will eventually lose in semifinals against fellow countrymen Pablo Carreño Busta and Guillermo García López in straight sets.
