Career[edit]

Górriz took part in 13 Grand Slam tournaments during his career.[3] From his 11 singles appearances he made the second round twice.[3] The first time was in the 1992 French Open who he beat world number 29 Omar Camporese, before being eliminated in the next round by Michael Chang in four sets.[3] In the 1993 Wimbledon Championships he also made the second round, with a win over Slava Doseděl.[3] On this occasion he lost in the second round to Todd Martin.[3]

The Spaniard made at least one quarter-final appearance on the ATP Tour every year from 1990 to 1994.[3] His best performance came in the 1991 Kremlin Cup, when he was a semi-finalist.[3]

As a doubles player he had more success, winning a title at Genova in 1991, with Alfonso Mora.[3] He was also runner-up at two tournaments.[3]
