Davis Cuppers on the RTM Team

Benjamin Becker is the newest member of the ATP's top 50 after reaching the semifinals of the ATP event last week in Delray Beach. After giving James Blake a very tough match, Blake had nothing but praise for Becker's game and potential to be a top player on the Tour.

Tomorrow Becker will have the chance to live out one of his childhood dreams as he competes in front of his home crowd representing Germany in Davis Cup. His opponent, Ivan Ljubcic, is a perennial top 10 player and Becker will need to stay poised under pressure to come out on top. Becker has shown that these are the occasions that bring out his best tennis when considering his dramatic victory over Agassi at the US Open and his five-set loss to Safin in the Australian Open.

Coverage of this exciting first round Davis Cup Tie will be shown on The Tennis Channel at 8AM EST Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

In addition to Becker, Horia Tecau will be representing Romania as they face a very tough France Team. Horia will be playing doubles with Andrei Pavel.
