Martín Rodríguez (American Spanish: [ma?'tin ro'ð?i?es]; born 18 December 1969) is a former professional tennis player from Argentina.

Rodríguez turned professional in 1991. He reached his career-high singles ranking when he became World Number 71 on June 14, 1999. On 25 October 2004, he reached his career-high doubles rank, when he became World Number 15.

Rodríguez won six doubles titles in his career, but failed to win a singles title in his career which gave him $US1,220,943. Although he played with many doubles partners, he played most of the time with fellow Argentine Gastón Etlis.

Rodríguez's coach was Horacio de la Peña. He currently resides in Buenos Aires.

After testing positive for an excessive amount of caffeine, Rodríguez forfeited prize money and ranking points from the 2002 ATP tournament in Basel.[1]
