Re: **Leonardo Mayer Cheering Thread!**
Last season was a great one for Leo. Leo went from being ranked #217 in May to finishing #78 on the back of a 37-14 challenger record, with three titles in five finals, as well as making the third round at the French Open after qualifying. Each of Leo's titles and finals came from late July onward, meaning he was in extremely great form for the second half of 2011. That makes the beginning of 2012 important for Leo, to give himself a buffer rankings wise so that he won't have as much pressure in defending so many points the second half of the season.
In 2012, Leonardo has a 5-8 overall record so far, with a QF in Sao Paulo being his best result. He's beaten Ferrero, Chardy and Giraldo on clay this season so hopefully he can start matching some consistency with his potential of great form. This week Leo is in Miami and plays Baghdatis in R1. He beat Marcos at the French Open last season so hopefully he can recreate that result this week in the United States. GL to Leo in Florida!
