His father is Geraldo, and his mother is Judith.[2] He has a brother named Andres, and a sister, Celine.[2] Felder began playing tennis at four years of age.[2]

As a junior, his career-high rankings were # 4 in singles, and # 5 in doubles, both in 2002.[5]

In February 2007 he played for the Uruguay Davis Cup team against Jamaica.[6][7]

After testing positive for cannabis in 2007, Felder was banned for two months.[8]

Felder won a gold medal in men's tennis at the 2013 Maccabiah Games.[9]
