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 Wimbledon Championships at the age of 17. He ultimately won six Grand Slam singles titles: 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 1989, he was voted the Player of the Year by both the ATP and the ITF. After his playing career ended Becker became a tennis commentator and media personality. He has engaged in numerous other ventures, including coaching Novak Djokovic for three years, playing poker professionally and working for an online poker company. In October 2002, the Munich District Court gave Becker a suspended two-year prison sentence for tax evasion. In 2017, he was declared bankrupt and in April 2022, he was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for hiding assets that the court required him to give to his creditors.
