Boris Becker

Boris Franz Becker is a German former world No. 1 tennis player. Becker was successful from the start of his career, winning the first of his six major singles titles at age 17. His major singles titles comprise three Wimbledon Championships, two Australian Opens and one US Open. Becker also won three year-end championships, 13 Masters titles and an Olympic gold medal in doubles. In 1989, he was voted the Player of the Year by both the ATP and the ITF. At times Becker struggled with his early success and fame, and his personal life has been turbulent. Since his playing career ended, he has engaged in numerous ventures, including coaching Novak Djokovic for three years, playing poker professionally and working for an online poker company. In April 2022, he was sentenced to two and a half years in prison on charges of hiding assets, related to his 2017 bankruptcy. He is incarcerated at HM Prison Huntercombe, indicating that he will be deported from the UK at the end of his sentence.
