How the affair unfolded in pictures
Boris Becker was found guilty of concealing assets on four counts confirmed by a jury at Southwark Crown Court on Friday April 8, 2022.
The trial turned out to be somewhat spectacular.
Becker was supported by his partner and his son throughout the trial.
The judgment represents a significant fall from grace for the former tennis star.
This isn’t Becker’s first brush with the law, however.
Becker was convicted of tax evasion by a Munich court in 2002 on fraudulent residency charges.
Becker has been cleared of 20 additional charges brought against him under insolvency law relating to his 2017 bankruptcy.
Becker was found to have taken steps to conceal his assets ahead of a scheduled auction to cover the cost of his insolvency.
Becker reportedly hid trophies, including two pieces of silverware picked up at Wimbledon.
The former world No. 1 now lives in Wimbledon, a stone’s throw from the famous hall where some of his finest moments took place.
Becker put on a resigned face as he watched the trial under the watchful eye of the media.
The German could face a prison sentence, but was released on bail pending sentencing later this month.
