Great job, Jesse!

Becker serving at 40% is not going to win many matches on any surface, let alone win on clay. In both the first and third sets, Levine got breaks at the start, Becker broke back later in the set, only to lose serve again. 50+ errors in three sets just doesn't cut it for Benni.

Jesse got one of the best draws possible and did what he had to do.

at least 120 other players(including Gulbis and Nalbandian) from the draw would have beaten these 2 and they have played for second round spot :facepalm:

As I've said previously, besides getting a paycheck, I don't see why Becker used his PR on this tournament...

Expected loss for Becker. His son was born some weeks ago and he has no preperation for this tournament, only one match in Nice where he arrived some hours before, losing to Stebe without a chance to take it.
Hope he will be back for the Grass...
