While Boris Becker is currently serving a prison sentence in London, John McEnroe has announced his intention to visit his former rival.
The ax fell at the end of April on Boris Becker and since then he has been sleeping in prison. The 54-year-old, world number one and 6-major slam winner has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison and will have to serve half of his sentence behind bars before being released on parole. Baker, who has lived in the UK since 2012, has been spending his days in jail in London since the sentencing.
McEnroe: Boris is a friend of mine, it’s awful
Convicted of bankruptcy-related fraud and convicted of four counts (out of 24), the three-times champion Wimbledon, whose tournament begins on Monday in the British capital, was wrongly mistaken for concealing nearly 3 million euros in assets and loans. In order not to pay his debts, he is therefore forced to a sad fate. Fate does not leave the tennis community unaffected. Novak Djokovic, who trained under the German, said he was “very sad”. The last person to speak on this topic is John McEnroe. In response to a question by the Mail Plus, the American, the 7-time Grand Slam champion, is also affected by what is happening to his former rival. McEnroe has even announced that he intends to visit “Boom Boom” during the upcoming Wimbledon Championships, which he will comment on again for the BBC.
“He kept telling me he’d be fine, that everything was under control.”
“Boris is a friend of mine, it’s horrible. John McEnroe pointed out, I want to see him if he can, if he’s willing to see people or if he can. I freak out, he’s been through a lot for a long time. He kept telling me he’d be OK, and that’s all.” under control.You know, it’s Boris.He’s been a great player and very confident on the court.But sometimes you’re not necessarily a big investor.And it seems some of the people around him haven’t helped much.On the field,Baker and McEnroe have faced each other ten times between the two years 1985 and 1992. Then younger, the German won 8 times.
