Becker’s last match in his pro-career. He was expected to lose, but rather no-one could imagine it’d be such a beat-down. Becker  had his arguments – in two previous matches he had easily defeated young & upcoming players (Kiefer & Hewitt), he also had won his two previous matches against Rafter…. And he led 3:1* after a game in which he committed three double faults. Then it turned into his disaster, two things mainly contributed: his poor serving (11 double faults in the first two sets) and Rafter’s backhand which was working above his standards. It’s quite strange looking at the scoreline that the Australian  lost his serve once in each set.
