Quote:
"Becker is what the Americans call a "Big Calibre Player". He is a great strategist on court. He uses his intelligence to do the right thing at the right time. He's a smart guy, a calm, precise chess player, who is fun to watch. His potential is incredible."
Looks like kinglear was right with his thread about Becker earlier this year.

It looks like Tarik is smoking some good stuff lately.

Too bad he isn't working with Karlovic anymore. Karlovic should have been top 20 by now if he cotinued working with him. But Karlo doesn't need Tarik anymore because he winning titles and is having his best season with his new coach Simon Cornell.

When you think of chess players of tennis, you think of Mecir and Wilander.

Becker is a small bloke with big shots.

I wonder what Benhabiles has to say about his new player, Gael Monfils. He probably thinks Monfils can become number 1.

Re: Tarik Benhabiles: "Benjamin Becker plays like a smart, precise chess player.

I like Becker, and he is an impressive player, but I wouldn't go as far as to say that his potential is incredible. I think he's at home in the top 50, nothing more.

Benji isn't a great thinker on court but hey he's a genius compared to Tarik's new employer.

If he says Becker is like a chess player, what does he think about Monfils?!

"This is not about class, colour or races,
let’s get around and see different places,
put a smile on those distant faces,
wipe away your sorrow with no traces."


All the best to the members of the FedererExpress

Monfils is a genius Becker a chess player What a joke.
Becker is all about big strokes.
