Ricky Becker played a big role in my admittance to Stanford. When the communication between the head women’s coach and myself was at a standstill, Ricky was able to contact the right people and did everything he could so that I would be able to be given a fair chance at attending Stanford. In addition to helping out by contacting people, Ricky and I met on a one-to-one basis to discuss these matters as well as Stanford in general, clearly showing that he was really determined to help me prepare in advance. Although Ricky helped just in the beginning, he was a vital part to my admittance to Stanford. Without him, I would have continually struggled to get in contact with the head coach and may not have gotten the chance to apply to such a prestigious school. Ricky Becker has been a pleasure to work with and has my highest regards.

Ricky Becker is a valuable asset to the Eastern Section in many facets. Ricky was a top ranked Eastern junior who represented the Section at both a National and Collegiate level. He has a great passion for the game of tennis and wants to share his experiences of the sport with others. Ricky has volunteered his time at many USTA Eastern Junior events. For the past two years he has served on our Expert Panel at the USTA Eastern College Tennis Showcase. His knowledge of the sport has been a great resource for our junior players. Ricky relates to the juniors so well and captures their attention when he speaks.For the first time this year, Ricky was our Keynote Presenter at the Eastern Annual Awards Luncheon held on January 26th, 2008 at The Renaissance Westchester Hotel. He kicked off our luncheon program by recognizing all the Juniors in the room receiving Eastern Sportsmanship awards. He reminded those in attendance, including parents, coaches, and colleagues, that good sportsmanship will not only get you far in tennis but in life too.
It has been my pleasure to know Ricky not only as a colleague, but also as a tennis player and friend.

Working with Ricky was one of the best decisions my parents and I made in the recruiting process. We were amateurs and Ricky sent us on the right path. Ricky gave us the proper guidance when it came to choosing schools, how to contact them, and how to seal the deal. It was a long and hard process but we got the job done. Ricky would reach out to his connections or connect me to coaches, which really eased things up for my family. He was very easy to talk to and gave great advice. Without Ricky, I have no idea where I would have ended up for college, but I know that I reached my full potential, and Ricky played a huge role in that.

Ricky Becker helped me tremendously in bringing my game up to the next level. When I first started working with Ricky, I was a highly ranked nationally player but yet I would always lose to players ranked ahead of me. Ricky helped polish my game and give me the confidence to beat players I had once deemed superior. During my senior year of high school Ricky helped me to continue to improve my game while many other players lost focus on tennis. This allowed for a smooth transition into my collegiate tennis career at Cornell University. Ricky has been a great coach and a great friend since we first started working together.
