Máximo González Mereira (American Spanish: [ˈmaksimo ɣonˈsalez meˈɾeiɾa];[a] born July 20, 1983 in Tandil) is a professional tennis player from Argentina. His career-high singles ranking is World No. 58, achieved in July 2009. González reached the semifinals of Umag in 2008 and Kitzbühel in 2014.
Early career through 2006
In singles play, González won two Futures events in the second half of 2004. He won four more Futures events in 2005 before finally finding success on the Challenger circuit with two consecutive semi-final appearances and a quarterfinal, improving his ranking to No. 206 in November 2005.
His success waned in early 2007, and by the end of July, his ranking had slipped to #267 in singles, despite qualifying in late July for his first ATP-level event, and then again a second time the following week.
In August, he built on that recent success, winning his first-ever Challenger title in Spain. The following week in Italy, he won his second Challenger title, beating former world #9 Mariano Puerta in the final. He beat Puerta a second time a few days later, but lost in the second round that week. The following week, still in Italy, he won his 3rd Challenger singles title, as well as his 7th doubles title. In the first week in September in Romania, he won his 4th Challenger in five weeks. In seven weeks, he went 27–3 in singles matches, including wins over 14 top-200 players, to improve his ranking to a #125 on September 10, 2007.
