Florian Mayer Biography

Florian Mayer is a German professional tennis player who plays on both the ATP Tour and the Challenger Tour. In 2011, Mayer won his first ATP title after four previous defeats in ATP finals. He has also won ten challenger events on top of this. At the 2004 Wimbledon Championships, Mayer reached the quarter-finals, which is his best Grand Slam result to date. He received the ATP Newcomer of the Year award in 2004. By winning three out of three matches at the 2011 World Team Cup in Düsseldorf, Mayer was the key player in the German team to capture the trophy for the fifth time. He won his first title in Bucharest, defeating Pablo Andujar in the final. On 13 October 2011, Mayer defeated world no. 2 Rafael Nadal in a brilliant display of tennis. Mayer is known for his unorthodox style of play. He has a long backswing on his forehand and backhand and uses a lot of different slices and spin on his backhand side. He is also known for his jumping backhand dropshots which catches many of his opponents on the backfoot.
