Profit: 0.00 - 8 = -8
Mayer against Souza in Medellin, clay court.
Mayer ranked 71 holds a 14-14 record on ATP tour and 6-5 on challenger tour this year. While he has won 7 of his last 10 games (all on clay) he hasn't beat anyone with good game, losing to players like Rufin, Trungelliti and Gonzalez. Out of his seven wins three are against Olivo, who is not impressive player at all, two first ones coming with big margin but last one in his last game in three tiebreaks showing that Mayer might be feeling some fatigue due to his heavy schedule (9 games in 15 days)
Souza ranked 135 holds 6-10 ATP and 14-7 challenger tour record, is mostly clay courter with 5 titles to his name on challenger tour clay events. He had great success in Colombia winning events in Cali and Quito (sept and start of oct) but lost twice after that in Brazil in first and second round. He had some rest after that and now back in Colombia took two wins 63 10 (retire) and 64 64 so seems like this Colombian atmosphere suits him well. Must try the underdog here as i don't think he should be underdog on clay court and Mayer seems to be fatigued with heavy schedule and a three tiebreak game.

funny game. Souza was better, Mayer had problems to hold every service game and was trailing 1-4 in third but still won.
