Bio He is a Spanish tennis player.

His preferred surface is clay, on which he has won two ATP titles and nineteen ITF titles in singles.
In a first-round contest between two qualifiers, Carballés Baena recorded his first ATP World Tour win at the 2014 Casablanca Open as he defeated David Goffin of Belgium in straight sets. He followed this up with a tightly fought win over João Sousa in the second round. He faced lucky loser Andrey Kuznetsov in the quarterfinals and won in straight sets. His run was stopped in the semifinals by Guillermo García-López, again in a close three-set match.

He made his Masters 1000 debut as a wildcard at the 2016 Miami Open. He made his debut as a qualifier at his home Masters at the 2016 Mutua Madrid Open. He made also his Major debut at the 2016 French Open after qualifying.

In February 2018, he won his first ATP tournament at the 2018 Ecuador Open Quito, beating Albert Ramos Viñolas in the final. He became the first Spanish qualifier to win a title since Almagro at the 2006 Valencia Open and the youngest Spanish champion at age 24 since Nadal (age 24) at the 2011 Barcelona Open. This victory resulted in him reaching the highest singles ranking of his career of World No. 72 thus far.

In February 2020, Carballés Baena won his first ATP title in doubles at the 2020 Chile Open in Santiago, partnering with fellow Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, where they defeated in the final the 2nd seeded pair Arévalo/O’Mara.

He reached the third round of the 2020 French Open, his best showing at a Grand Slam in his career by defeating 9th seed Denis Shapovalov in the second round, his first top-10 win and first victory in five sets, but retired in the next round against 18th seed Grigor Dimitrov.

In April 2021, he won his first title of the year at the 2021 Belgrade Challenger. In May, he qualified for the Masters 1000 in Rome for the first time.

Carballés Baena qualified to represent Spain at the 2020 Summer Olympics in singles and doubles partnering with Pablo Andujar. In September 2021, following his 2021 US Open second round showing, he reached his third Challenger final of the year as a top seed at the 2021 Murcia Open in Spain, losing to second seed Tallon Griekspoor. At the same tournament he also reached the final in doubles partnering Alberto Barroso Campos.

At the 2022 Firenze Open Carballes Baena advanced to his 15th ATP Tour quarterfinal, but only his first on a surface other than clay, defeating second seed Matteo Berrettini, his third Top-20 triumph.

Carballes Baena was defeated in the first round of the 2023 Australian Open in straight sets by eventual champion Novak Djokovic.

At the ATP 250 2023 Córdoba Open he broke the record for the longest match ever in the tournament history when he lost to compatriot Bernabe Zapata Miralles in three hours and 26 minutes in the first round. The previous-longest match was in 2020, when Albert Ramos-Vinolas outlasted Pablo Andujar in three hours and 20 minutes.

Five years after his first ATP title, he won his second at the 2023 Grand Prix Hassan II in Marrakech defeating fifth seed Maxime Cressy in the first round, fourth seed Tallon Griekspoor in the quarterfinals, second seed Dan Evans in the semifinals and Alexandre Müller in the final. As a result, he moved to a new career high in the top 50 at world No. 49 on April 10, 2023.

He won his first match ever in Madrid and only his fifth at a Masters 1000 level, defeating David Goffin. He also won his first match ever in Rome defeating Hugo Dellien. Next he defeated Dan Evans for a second time in the season in a marathon lasting almost four hours, the longest best-of-three-set match of the season, to reach the third round for the first time in his career at a Masters level.
