In a recent turn of events, Boris Becker, the three-time Wimbledon champion, took to social media to praise Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool's unbeaten streak in the English Premier League. The Reds kicked off their five-game unbeaten run with a goalless draw against Chelsea on April 5, followed by a 2-2 draw against Mikel Arteta's Arsenal. They then defeated Leeds United 6-1 before overcoming Nottingham Forest 3-2. On Wednesday, May 26, they sealed a 2-1 win over West Ham United with goals from Cody Gakpo and Joel Matip. As a huge football fan, Becker expressed his appreciation for Klopp's commitment to his club through his Instagram story. However, the veteran athlete has also been in the news for discussing his time in prison. Recently, he opened up about serving 8 months out of his 2-and-a-half-year sentence for concealing £2.5 million in assets and loans in a bankruptcy fraud case. Speaking to the BBC, he stated that the experience "humbled" him. "I never thought at 17 I'd be incarcerated at 54. If anything it certainly humbled me, it certainly made me realize that whether you're called Boris Becker or Paul Smith, if you break the law, you get convicted and you get incarcerated, that goes for everybody," he admitted. The former tennis player believes that his time in prison influenced his future decisions. He referred to himself as a "survivor" and a "tough cookie," saying that he has taken both the glory and the penalties life has offered him. "But I've also taken the glory and if anything this made me a stronger, better man. With my decisions in the future you can see whether I have learned from it or I didn't," he added. Becker's life has been recently documented in a documentary series titled "Boom! Boom! The World vs. Boris Becker" released by Apple TV+. The series highlights the former world no. 1's life, including the lead-up to his incarceration in 2022. Becker's time in prison has given him a new outlook on life, and he is now working on making better decisions. The tennis legend's fans are eagerly waiting for his next moves, and hopefully, he will continue to inspire them with his future decisions.
