London / Munich – Boris Becker's life took a 180 degree turn at the end of April 2022: the former Wimbledon winner was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for insolvency offences.
The conditions in London's Wandsworth prison seem to prompt Becker to complain and whine after just a few days.
The former tennis star enjoys some privileges: for example, his prison door remains open.

Boris Becker in prison: His whining is apparently not well received by fellow inmates

References to his actually privileged life as a former tennis star should not go down well with the other inmates.
Although some Becker fans are also said to be serving a sentence in the London jail, many inmates are apparently annoyed by him, according to the report.
No wonder Becker has hopes of being transferred to another, better prison.
According to information from Bild.de
, he often
asks the guards when the time will come .
