Roger Becker (born 6 February 1934) was a British tennis player. Roger was a natural sportsman. Cricket, football, golf and tennis were all well within his grasp. However, in 1949 he chose tennis to the dismay of the players of the other sports. In 1952, Becker played in the Davis Cup at 18 years of age, the youngest British player to have done so at the time, his record stood until 2005 when it was broken by Andy Murray aged 17. He served as Paul Hutchins' coach for a time.

He also played football for Croydon Amateurs FC during the club's first season - 1953-54 in the Surrey Senior League - when he scored fourteen goals in twelve appearances for the first team. His season ended early when he returned to tennis before the end of the football season and missed out on two cup finals as a result.
