Tennis memorabilia goes under hammer as Boris Becker battles bankruptcy

July 9th, 2019


Some of the tennis legend Boris Becker's most prized possessions went up for auction in London as the German attempts to pay off creditors amid a divorce battle which has left him bankrupt. The three-time Wimbledon winner was declared bankrupt back in 2017 after a series of ill-advised investments, before his marriage to his wife Lilly broke down. He is now attempting to reach the terms of their financial settlement, with creditors selling off his trophies and awards.
