Lopez career ends in Mallorca with defeat by Hanfmann

Feliciano Lopez’s 26-year playing career ended when he lost 6-2 6-4 to Yannick Hanfmann in the quarter-finals of the Mallorca Open on Thursday. Despite victories over Australians Max Purcell and Jordan Thompson, the Spanish left-hander fell short against Germany’s Hanfmann. Throughout his career, Lopez achieved a career high ranking of 12 and holds the record for appearing in 79 successive Grand Slam main draws. During his final event as a professional, he was supported by 22-time Grand Slam champion Rafa Nadal.

Now, Lopez will shift his focus to his new role as tournament director of the Davis Cup, a competition he won four times. Hanfmann, who also defeated top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Mallorca grasscourt event, will face Adrian Mannarino or Corentin Moutet in the semi-finals.
