Trophies and personal souvenirs belonging to bankrupt German tennis star Boris Becker will be auctioned to partially clear the champion’s debts.
He is the youngest winner in Wimbledon’s history, who claimed the first of three titles at age 17, is auctioning off 82 items including medals, cups, watches and photographs.
Now 51-year-old champion declared bankruptcy.
The six-time Grand Slam winner, nicknamed “Boom Boom” Becker for his devastating serve, won 49 titles and over 20 million euros in prize money. He now focuses on his tennis activities, particularly commentating, as he attempts to use his fame to wipe out his debts
