Carretero, a former junior French Open Champion, shocked the tennis world by winning the title in Hamburg as a virtually unknown player ranked only 143. En route to the title he defeated two top 100 players, two top 20 players (Washington and Boetsch), and most notably, Yevgeny Kafelnikov in the semi-finals, and Àlex Corretja in the final. After winning the title, Carretero lost in the first round of Roland Garros and did not have any significant results other than winning a Challenger tournament held in Sopot, Poland in 1999.
He retired from professional tennis after the 2001 season.
