Becker Advised Injured Murray to Skip French Open
Becker has begun dispensing his usual pre-French Open advice, telling
injured Scot Andy Murray to consider pulling out of Roland Garros.
"I worry where Andy is physically," Becker told London's
Telegraph. "Back pain is a disaster on clay. On any other surface you
can handle it because you can finish matches quickly, but on clay you
have to be ready to play for two or three hours every day. We saw that
Andy couldn't handle that in Rome."
