Career

Marrero turned professional in 1998. At the 2000 French Open, she reached the quarterfinals as a qualifier. In the second round, Marrero defeated Dominique Van Roost, who defeated number two seed Lindsay Davenport in the first round. Reaching the fourth round, she defeated Paraguay's Rossana de los Ríos in three sets. It was the first time in French Open history that two qualifiers met in the fourth round. In the quarterfinals, Marrero was defeated by eventual runner-up Conchita Martínez, 7-6, 6-1. At the 2001 French Open, she lost in the third round to Kim Clijsters, who finished runner-up.

2004 saw the Spaniard win Marrero first WTA doubles title in Sopot, Poland. In the final, she and Nuria Llagostera Vives defeated Klaudia Jans and Alicja Rosolska. In 2005, Marrero won her second (and last, to date) WTA doubles title. Partnering Antonella Serra Zanetti, the team, which was seeded fourth, defeated Daniela and Sandra Klemenschits in the final.

At the 2007 US Open, Marrero competed in the women's doubles competition with Selima Sfar. In the first round, Marrero and Sfar defeated Roberta Vinci and former world number one doubles player Paola Suárez in three sets. They lost in the second round, however, to Alicia Molik and Mara Santangelo, who were the 2007 French Open doubles champions.

Marrero announced her retirement from tennis in 2010, after struggling with injuries.[2]
