Boris Becker booking
Boris Becker is professional tennis player from Germany, who has retired from the professional tour.
He won 6 Grand Slam singles in his career and also held the ‘World No. 1’ position. He is also an
Olympic gold medalist. Till date, Becker has won singles titles in 14 different countries, namely
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Qatar, Sweden,
Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States. Though he has retired from active tennis, he remains
in the headlines for media work as well as his personal life. In 2003, Becker was inducted into the
International Tennis Hall of Fame.
Boris Becker was born as ‘Boris Franz Becker’ on 22nd November 1967, in Leimen, West Germany.
He is the only son of his father, an architect who built the tennis center Blau-Weiss Tennisklub (where
young Becker usually played against young Steffi Graf in training matches), and his mother. He
displayed a keen interest and inclination towards tennis since a very tender age. Becker became a
professional tennis player in the year 1984, when he was hardly 17 years old.
Becker won his first professional doubles title in Munich in 1984, the same year he turned
professional. The next year turned out to be one of the biggest in his life. After winning his first toplevel singles title in June, at Queen’s Club, he became the first unseeded player and the first German
to win the Wimbledon singles title (July 1985). At the age of 17 years and 7 months, he also became
the youngest ever male Grand Slam singles champion. The record was later broken by Michael
Chang, who won the French Open at 17 years, 3 months. Hardly two months after his Wimbledon
triumph, Becker claimed the title of the youngest winner of the Cincinnati Masters. In 1986, he
successfully defended his Wimbledon title, defeating the then-World No. 1 Ivan Lendl. The next year,
he lost Wimbledon in the second round, but won Davis Cup. In the latter case, he played one of the
longest matches in tennis history, with John McEnroe, which lasted 6 hours and 39 minutes. He
reached the Wimbledon final again, in 1988, but lost to Stefan Edberg. Becker won the year-end
Masters title in New York. The year 1989 was one of the greatest in the career of Becker, when he
reached the pinnacle of success. He won U.S. Open by defeating Lendl and also helped West
Germany retain the Davis Cup. There was only one problem; he was still short of becoming the ‘World
No. 1’ in tennis. In 1990, he not only lost Wimbledon final, but also failed to defend his U.S. Open title.
The next year, he reached Australian Open final for the first time in his career and also managed to
win it. It was his win in the Australian Open that helped Becker clinch the World No. 1 ranking, for the
first time, which lasted twelve weeks. However, the same year, he lost French Open to Agassi and
also couldn’t win his fourth consecutive Wimbledon final. In 1992, Becker paired with Stich to win the
men’s doubles gold medal at the Olympic Games, held in Barcelona. The same year, he won ATP
Tour World Championships, defeating Jim Courier. Becker reached Wimbledon final in 1995, for the
seventh time, but lost to Pete Sampras.
As a consolation, he won the year-end ATP Tour World Championships in Frankfurt. The sixth and
final Grand Slam was claimed by Becker in 1996, when he defeated Michael Chang in the final of the
Australian Open. Becker again lost to Sampras, in 1996, in the final of the ATP Tour World
Championships, and in 1997, in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon. His last appearance in Wimbledon
came in 1999, losing in the fourth round to Patrick Rafter. Though retired from professional tours, he
occasionally plays on the senior tour and in World Team Tennis. He is sometimes also seen as a
commentator at Wimbledon, for BBC.
