In June, Beck qualified for the 2008 Wimbledon Championships, beating No. 218 Paolo Lorenzi, No. 194 Brendan Evans, and No. 280 Jaroslav Pospíšil. In his first round match he played World No. 2 Rafael Nadal on Centre Court, losing in straight sets.

In the Monte-Carlo Masters, Beck entered as a qualifier and reached the quarterfinals, defeating sixth seed Gilles Simon and Juan Mónaco along the way. He was defeated by Stanislas Wawrinka in straight sets, the Swiss having beaten countryman and World No. 2 Roger Federer in the previous round. As a result of his performance in this tournament, Beck's ranking climbed 29 places in the ATP rankings to No. 60, while he reached his career-high of World No. 33 later in the year.

Beck reached his first ATP final at the Allianz Suisse Open Gstaad. He was defeated by qualifier Thomaz Bellucci.
