Re: Benjamin Becker

He had elbow surgery, and will likely miss the rest of the season.

At this point, he should just not play until the fall, as a PR will kick in for him in a couple of months.

Re: Benjamin Becker

Benni came back from his elbow surgery at the end of November. Impressively, he made the QF and qualified and made the 2nd round of two challenger events at the end of 2011 after returning.

In 2012, Benni's best result is making the SF of the Memphis 500 event defeating Sela, Malisse and Kubot before losing to Raonic, as well as making the SF of the challenger in Bergamo. After being as low as #346 on February 13th, he is now provisionally ranked #157 and has effectively nothing to defend through the rest of the season until the final events he played in November. He's going nowhere but up and if he continues with his consistent performances, he should be in the top 100 by the end of the season for sure, if not earlier!

This past week in Miami Benni won his first round match 5-7 6-3 6-2 over Rochus before losing 6-3 3-6 6-7(4) to Benneteau in the second round. Disappointing to lose such a close match but the fact he's playing such competitive matches against good players on a slow court such as Miami is a great sign that Benni is playing well. This week he's playing a challenger in Le Gosier, Guadeloupe and is playing Rogerio Dutra Da Silva in R1. Hopefully he has a big week and can continue his match towards the top 100!

Re: Benjamin Becker

Benni made the QFs of Le Gosier, defeating Dutra Da Silva and Herbert in comfortable straight-sets before losing to #4 seed Roger-Vasselin 6-4 6-7(7) 5-7. He led 6-4 *5-3 and served for the match at *5-4 in the third set, but couldn't finish off the match. Very disappointing loss, as the one vs Benneteau in Miami. Hopefully he'll win these close matches in the future.

Benni's next event is this upcoming week in Tallahassee. He will be playing Odesnik in R1. He has a good draw to go deep at the event so hopefully he makes up for the result in Guadeloupe with a good run in Florida!

Re: Benjamin Becker

Benni lost 4-6 0-6 to Odesnik in Tallahassee. He was tired, he was frustrated and smashed his racquet a few times, but nothing worked. Unfortunate but he has played a lot of tennis lately, and could use the rest. He's had a great year all things considering, and we haven't even gotten to his favorite parts of the schedule. Hopefully he takes the confidence from his positive matches this year so far and continues to build on them.

Re: Benjamin Becker

Benjamin won in doubles with Kohlmann in the first round of Tallahassee over the #2 seeds Ram/Parrott 6-4 6-3 on Wednesday. Hopefully he and Michael can win the doubles to make up for the R1 singles loss!

Re: Benjamin Becker

Benni and Kohlmann got to the SF of the doubles in Tallahassee before losing 8-10 in the final set supertiebreaker to Sitak/Strode.

Benni will next be playing in Sarasota next week on green clay. Hopefully he can have a great run and boost his ranking closer to the top 100!

Re: Benjamin Becker

He pulled out, so I guess he is injured. Too bad.

Re: Benjamin Becker

He is playing again! Nice qualis. Good to get some matches in before the grass starts.

Re: Benjamin Becker

Expected. Stebe is better on clay than him and he hasn't play for a while.
Hopefully he is OK at RG

Re: Benjamin Becker

He won in Nottingham, so glad! Hope he takes this form to the bigger grass court tournaments.

Re: Benjamin Becker

CLOWN. Losing to a guy who is ranked outside the TOp 300 without a CHANCE...

Re: Benjamin Becker

Why is he not in WIMBLEDON Qualies?

I think his ranking is not high enough for main draw... but he is not in the qualies draw!

Although he is so good on grass.
