Leonardo Mayer is our mover of the week. For the second consecutive week, a lucky loser won a title, and this week it was his turn. He defeated Florian Mayer in Hamburg to win the German Open title, which catapulted his ranking back into the top fifty. Although it is still not at his career high, he will be extremely ecstatic with this improvement. It takes one great run to change your rankings and we have seen that time and again especially at the tournaments with significant ranking points. If you are lucky, which he was, and go far in the draw you can gain those valuable points.
