Boris Becker is a former World No. 1 professional tennis player from Germany. He is a six-time Grand Slam singles champion, an Olympic gold medalist in doubles, and the youngest-ever winner of the men’s singles title at Wimbledon at the age of 17. He is currently coaching Novak Djokovic.
Boris exploded onto the tennis scene in 1985, when he became the youngest male ever to win the Wimbledon singles championship. His victory was considered a fluke by some because none of the top seeds reached the final that year; he won a four-set over unheralded Kevin Curren to take the title. However, Boris proved it was no fluke by winning the championship again in 1986, this time beating Ivan Lendl. He reached the finals four years in a row, from 1988 through 1991, winning the final for a third time in 1989. He also won the U. S. Open in 1989 and the Australian Open in 1991 and 1996. He finished his career with 49 singles titles and 15 doubles titles.Tennis Magazine put Becker in 18th place on its list of the 40 greatest tennis players from 1965 to 2005.
