“I started crying,” Boris Becker reveals he cried in prison while watching Novak Djokovic win Wimbledon 2022

Becker was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for illegally hiding his assets during his bankruptcy.

Former World No.1 Boris Becker revealed that he started crying while watching Novak Djokovic win the Wimbledon Championship in 2022. During that time, it was a difficult time for the 55-year-old as he was inside the prison.

Becker was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for illegally hiding his assets during his bankruptcy. He got out of jail after eight months and reunited with his family in Germany last year at the end of December.

During the Berlin Film Festival on Sunday, the coach of the 22-time Grand Slam winner spoke to the media about ‘Boom! Boom! The World vs. Boris Becker’, which is a two-part documentary about his life that will premiere on Apple TV+. Also Read: Carlos Alcaraz Registers 1st Win At Argentina Open After Injury 

The German stated that during that tough year in prison, Djokovic was one of the few players who supported him and his family. And when Djokovic won his 21st Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, his former coach started crying. Djokovic won the final by beating Nick Kyrgois 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3) to win his seventh grass court majors title and fourth one in a row.

Boris Becker also disclosed that the World No. will also feature in the documentary

While I was inside [jail], Novak supported me, he supported my family. I started crying when he started winning. I’m very proud that probably the best player of all time is part of this story,” Becker said.

During the Madrid Masters last year, Djokovic had said how Becker’s imprisonment left him “heartbroken“.

I was just heartbroken. I mean, don’t know what to say more than that. I’m not going to get into details of the verdict, because I’m not in a position to do that, but as his friend, you know, I’m super sad for him,” the 35-year-old said. “It’s not much that you can say.”

Djokovic also hoped for a “normal” life for Becker, acknowledging that life changes after going to jail. “I mean, I just hope he will go through this period.” Notably, Becker was a panelist for Eurosport during the Australian Open, where Djokovic defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5)and won the title.
