In 1985, at the age of 17, Boris Becker became and remains the youngest ever Men’s Singles winner of Wimbledon. During his career, he won 6 Grand Slams and more recently became coach to one of the world’s greatest ever players, Novak Djokovic – the current world #1.
Since his retirement from professional tennis, he has also been a tennis commentator for Sky and the BBC, and has written for publications such as The Times, curating his own sports column.
Of all of the many illustrious champions in tennis, Boris is instantly recognisable all over the world. This is not only because he reached number 1, but because he went on to win six grand slams, he played at the highest level until his retirement in 1999, and also because he is one of the most intelligent and shrewd sportsmen in the world today who has never lacked for a trenchant, eloquent, fascinating viewpoint on the game, its status, its characters and its traditions, which is what he will share with you when he takes to the stage.
