He repeated there in 1986 and 1989 and led West Germany to Davis Cup victories in 1988 and 1989. Becker also won the U.S. (1989) and Australian (1991, 1996) opens. Since his retirement as a player in 1999 he has worked as a tennis commentator and coached (2013–16) Novak Djokovic, among other activities.
