Biography

Since Benjamin Becker defeated Andre Agassi in the American's final tennis match at the 2006 US Open, the 31-year-old has struggled to improve on his breakthrough moment. Becker's powerful serve, comparable to his namesake Boris (no relation), is the German's main weapon. In March 2007, he broke into the world's top 40 for the first time and has one ATP Tour title to his name (Ordina Open, 2009). Becker has never progressed beyond the second round of Wimbledon, losing at that stage on five seperate occasions.
