Becker: Tiger's comeback will be huge challenge

Abu Dhabi:

Support continued to pour in for Tiger Woods with tennis star Boris Becker and Olympic sprinter Edwin Moses on Tuesday saying that the disgraced golfer is now facing the biggest challenge in his life of making a comeback.

During a discussion on who should be the Laureus best sportsperson of the decade, six-time Grand Slam singles champion Becker said that Tiger is in that list for his golfing achievements and not for his private life antics.

"He (Tiger) is one of the most famous sportspersons and people want to know what happened behind the scene. We have heard stories which we didn't expect but it should not matter.

I think the next big challenge for him would be to make a comeback," Becker said.

"True champions has to comeback from difficult situation, Tiger has shown that in the golf course but I think this will be the biggest challenge for him to make a comeback this time," he said.

Olympic gold medallist Moses of USA also echoed his view.

"In life different things happen to people but if you see from the performance point of view, the way Tiger has contributed in golf, it shows how important he is," Moses said.
