Becker leads their previous matches 4-1. Their last one was in January and he won in 3 sets on a hard court.
Becker isn’t great on clay although did reach the 3rd round of the French Open last year. He should enjoy the faster clay in Houston.
Berrer played the final of a Challenger on Sunday so I’d expect him to feel the effects of playing a long week. No points to defend for him this week. I am on Becker from the start.
