Re: Bercy R2: Monfils def. Becker 7-6(4) 6-4
Becker got tight every single time he had chances to really make an impact in the match. He got out to that 5-1 lead, but even then it didn't really seem as if it was a sure lead, and sure enough, it wasn't. Becker simply isn't good enough from the baseline to beat top 20 players. Monfils was very patchy and rough, but he had moments of brilliance and competed very well, and served well in critical moments. A win is a win, definitely will need to improve to defeat better players.
