Dark clouds appeared over Boris Becker in 2017. Then a court in London declared him bankrupt. The successful tennis player earned $50 million over the course of his career, but mishandled his fortune. In addition, his subsequent divorce has cost him a lot. Debts followed and that is why the German, who has lived permanently in the UK since 2012, was declared insolvent.
Additional information emerged in the context of the bankruptcy case. Baker was supposed to be tricked into hiding some of his assets to avoid paying his debts. In another lawsuit, he was charged with 24 charges under the Bankruptcy Act. On Friday, four of them were found guilty.
The six-time Grand Slam champion and former ATP captain will know the verdict in his case on April 29. He even faces up to seven years in prison. Pending sentencing, the 54-year-old will remain free on bail.
