Like many of the top Spanish players Feliciano Lopez is left-handed, however unlike most of his compatriots he uses a single-handed backhand. He will usually slice his backhand instead of opting for the topspin drive. He is known for his strong serve and ability to play balls repetitively on the baseline. He is also a confident net player and has been known to adopt the serve-and-volley routine of play during matches.

In 2005 he was the first male Spanish tennis player to reach the quarter-final of Wimbledon since 1972, when Manuel Orantes reached the semi-finals. This is Lopez's best Grand Slam result so far and he repeated it again at Wimbledon in 2008, this time beaten by Marat Safin in four sets.

He is currently ranked 31st in the ATP Rankings and is 30th in the ATP Race. His highest ranking is 20th.
