Máximo González Mereira (born July 20, 1983 in Tandil) is a professional tennis player from Argentina. His career high ranking is #58, achieved on July 6, 2009.

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 #206 in November, 2005. Two years after beginning to play professional tennis full time, he reached a career high of #156 on August 14, 2006.

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.
