In his prime, Boris Becker was the best tennis player in the world, and the distinctively blonde-haired German was the youngest man ever to win Wimbledon at just 17. Though surely this was the crowning moment of his career, Becker also won an Olympic gold medal, 13 Masters series titles and five elite indoor titles.
He said of retirement, in a 2012 interview, “I had won so much by 22, a number of Wimbledon titles, US Open, Davis Cup, World number one. You look for the next big thing and that isn't in tennis."
Since leaving the world of professional tennis, it would be an understatement to say that Becker has diversified his interests. Not only does he own a tennis clothing and accessories brand, but he is a skilled poker player, appears often on TV as a commentator, has written an autobiography, can be booked through his London booking agency for personal appearances and in 2013, began coaching Novak Djokovic.
This last endeavour took up much of his time, with Becker acting as coach to Djokovic for three years, during which time he contributed to six Grand Slam titles and 14 Masters titles for the Serbian.
