What happened to Leo Mayer?

In 2009 I watched a couple of his matches and practice sessions in Los Angeles and I remember thinking that the guy had quite a potential. Maybe a little too emotional but his game was promising.

What happened to him? Did he get injured or just lost his confidence out of a sudden?

Back injury. Then had a leg injury. Just starting to come back now. Injuries mostly, along with mental fragility.

He had a good RG last year, but he got injured at Wimbledon I believe, and it has been downhill from there.

He struggled with a back injury the second part of last year, had surgery this year and now he's trying to regain form. He won easy today in the FO qualifiers; but it's still a long way to go.

Hopefully he makes the Main Draw! I always thought that his hard court game was better than his clay game, hopefully his is fully fit by the US hard court season.

He'll be back in the top 100 in a few months, he has won a few matches in the challengers, only a matter of time. Too good a player to disappear.

Leo is doing great at the French Open! Won all of his qualifiers and has a pretty decent chance of advancing to the Second Round :bigclap:

Looks like he is going strong after all the injuries! Good luck, Leo :cool:
