BECKER WINS HIS WAY INTO MATCH WITH SAMPRAS

Boris Becker beat Australian Mark Woodforde, 6-2, 6-4, in his opening match at the Paris Open Tuesday and was to play top-ranked Pete Sampras in the second round.

Becker won five straight games in the first set after being down, 1-2, then came back from a 1-3 deficit in the second set.

Becker has retired from Grand Slam play and has entered only a few tournaments this year.

"Next year, I will play a full schedule for February and March and see what happens," Becker said. "I'll see if Germany still needs me in the Davis Cup as a player."
