FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Boris Becker has been hired for the new position of head of men’s tennis by the German tennis federation.

The six-time Grand Slam champion will advise all top male players from the country and help its Davis Cup team.

The federation announced Becker’s appointment Wednesday, as well as Barbara Rittner’s move from Fed Cup captain to head of women’s tennis.

Jens Gerlach takes over Germany’s Fed Cup team.

Becker won three titles at Wimbledon — including at age 17 in 1985 — two at the Australian Open and one at the U.S. Open. He also reached No. 1 in the ATP rankings.
