Previously, he had already won seven singles and six doubles tournaments on the circuit Future ITF and three doubles tournaments ATP Challenger Series. He followed this up with two more Challenger titles the same year, the Seguros Bolívar Open Medellín defeating Argentinian Guido Andreozzi in two sets, and the first edition of the São Paulo Challenger de Tênis, defeating another Argentinian Eduardo Schwank taking his tally to three Challenger wins in 2013.

ATP Tour

In July 2013 Gonzalez received direct entry to his first ATP World Tour event, the 2013 Claro Open Colombia, however he lost in the first round to Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in three sets.

Gonzalez made his Grand Slam tournament debut at the beginning of 2014 at the Australian Open, receiving direct entry for the first time. He was drawn against third seed David Ferrer, however lost in straight sets to the Spaniard. He also entered the doubles draw, teaming up with Argentine Carlos Berlocq. The pair were drawn against local wildcard pairing of Benjamin Mitchell and Jordan Thompson, however lost in three sets despite taking the opening set. Gonzalez received direct entry to two consecutive ATP Tour events in South America, losing in the first round of the Royal Guard Open to Italian Paolo Lorenzi, followed by another opening round loss, at the Copa Claro in Buenos Aires, this time to Frenchman Jérémy Chardy. He followed this with an appearance at the inaugural rio Open in Brazil, losing once again in the first round to Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay. The following week, he made it four losses in a row, losing to Potito Starace of Italy at the Brasil Open.

At the 2014 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, Gonzalez received his first ever entry to a Masters 1000 tournament. Here he recorded the first ever Tour level wins of his career, defeating Adrian Mannarino in the first round, and backing that up with a win over 31st seed Ivan Dodig of Croatia. His third round opponent was world number 2 and eventual champion Novak Djokovic, in a significant step up from his previous opponents. He took a set off the former world number one before succumbing 1-6 6-3 1-6.
