QUALIFIER BECKER REACHES FINAL ORDINA OPEN


Benjamin Becker is playing the men´s singles final of the Ordina Open this Saturday. Becker, who entered the tournament as a qualifier, defeated his countryman Rainer Schüttler in three sets: 3-6, 7-5 and 6-1.

Both Germans mainly played round the baseline. Initially, Schüttler seemed to have better control of the match, but just when he served for matchpoint, Becker gave it one last try. It was 3-5 in the second set but he broke Schüttler’s serve twice, won the set and needed very few effort in the third set to secure his place in the final. In the final Becker faces the winner of the match Raemon Sluiter vs. Ivan Navarro.
