    Aged? Cash? Where to take it, if you don't have it anymore. Its a sad story. Boris is told to be bankrupt, and to get some money, he has to be part of some crazy infantil TV game shows with his "enemy", the German comedian Pocher, who - like Boris and Tommy Haas before - had an affair with the Paris-Hilton-like Sandy Mayer-W├Âlden. Boris new book is full of intimate bed stories, and is also an attempt to get some spotlight and money back.

    Please, no. A plastic face would be even more embarrassing. Despite the photo, there's still a certain dignity in letting yourself age normally. Imagine a botox Becker: fear.

    he can't play some seniors tourneys? Those are actually quite lucrative, I think. Maybe he could play a rematch with Doohan on grass. There are plenty of ways to make money that aren't so humiliating. I mean people in the US would love to see him play Agassi or Sampras or McEnroe. Maybe he's too out of shape to play tennis.

    I think, he cannot play tennis anymore, not on a somewhat professional level. He has an artificial hip, and his knees and ankles are deserting him.

    With his massive frame and the way he threw himself around the court, he's probably pretty damn beat up.

    I like Boris, funny fella.

    I would LOVE to see "today" pics of ex-pros from the 80s...if anyone has any to share. Not the usual ones of course but the pros/journeymen who were never too much in the spotlight, e.g Curren, Solomon, Taroczy, Bobo Zivojinovic...etc

    p.s How much of his money has Becker lost? Most of it? How did he lose it?

    I think I may be among the biggest Boris Becker fans that have ever existed and had almost 200 of his matches on vhs and pretty much all the racquets, clothes, shoes etc. After every vhs player I had broke, and the clothes started to deteriorate, I finally let go of the collection. I'm not sure I would pay to watch Becker play at his current condition.
