Boris Becker’s 55th Birthday (* November 22, 1967)

He is one of the all-time superstars of German sports and one of the greatest tennis players of all time: Boris Becker. Like few other people, he still riles up people's emotions.

When the native of Leimen became the first unseeded and youngest player ever to win Wimbledon in 1985 at the age of just 17, it triggered a veritable hype, especially in Germany.

With his fast, enthusiastic and offensive play, his signature volley dives at the net and his unrestrained emotions, he captivates the audience from then on and defeats even far superior opponents. Boom-Boom-Boris, as he is quickly called, wins a total of 49 tournaments in singles and 15 in doubles. Becker won the Grand Slam six times and Wimbledon three times. Twice he wins the Davis Cup for Germany, once Olympic gold in doubles. For twelve weeks he is number one in the world rankings and is later inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

After losing in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 1997, Becker announced his retirement from the tennis world. Yet two years later he makes a comeback to the famous grass courts, only to end his active career for good after an early defeat. However, he remains closely associated with the sport as a coach and commentator. He also continues to have a media presence as a presenter, author, advertiser and prominent guest on TV shows. In addition, he regularly makes the headlines owing to his private life, unsuccessful business activities and various financial crimes. Since April 2022 Becker has been serving time for several bankruptcy offenses.
