He was referring to the mental burden imposed by his 10 year tax evasion investigation and the effect it had on his tennis game.


Signature line modified accordingly.

Wow, I see alot of people with that quote! It's cool that I was involved.
Wait, Becker earned over $146 million from tennis? How come on Wikipedia, it said that Federer is the highest earning player with over $76 million in earnings?

Wow, I can't believe he was one of those tax evaders...
Plus, his money is nearly gone from Child Support and Alimony and lives in a hotel...
