He has a negative record in finals at Challenger level, if it makes you feel better.
I was wondering about that yesterday, but didn't bother to look it up
Oh, there's a few articles from the local papers reporting Sunrise. Nothing too interesting, but this one has a blurb of his interview:
In the other semifinal, No. 2 seeded Gilles Simon of France beat Santiago Giraldo of Colombia, 6-1, 6-2.
Simon, whose once was ranked as high as No. 6 in the Association of Tennis Professionals, resembled a player from more than a year ago, before he missed part of last year with a right knee injury.
Simon played aggressive, controlled the match with his serve and had a consistent backhand.
"I think I was going the wrong way during the last few months of last season," said Simon, who won in just less than an hour. "Last year was very hard for me because I got injured. I had to deal with it for about six months where I had to pull out or retire from matches. Tonight, I felt very strong."
This one is about Mayer, if anyone is interested in "scouting" the opponent.
