    Girlfriend photos send Boris Becker’s estranged wife into Instagram rage

    I agree. Same for me, liked Boris a lot. Maybe he could go to the gym and get back to a more decent shape. C'mon Boris, if you read these lines, you can do it! Btw her girlfriend looks er, gorgeous, in my opinion. Well done Boris :)

    To all my Swedish fellow tennis fans...

    Strange, I don't know... very common, undoubtedly... I think I had already understood then how life worked. I wouldn't mind a rock star or an actor 'rebelling' against the establishment, or pretending to, taking drugs because that was part of the game. But Mats... I understand that it may sound...

    Wasn't it the year before that Pernorfs won the Canada Open? Can't remember exactly. But I remember very well that match against Mats. How good it was to have him back. Completely forgot the Oncins funny quote though, very well spotted MM!

    Yes, and the same feel as well! That's why we love(d) them.

    To all my Swedish fellow tennis fans...

    Thank you very much Sambuccashake, again that was very helpful (dreadful avatar though :giggle:). I had no idea whether that guy was a doctor, a journalist or anyone else. The news came out the day of the 1996 Australian Open final Becker-Chang. I liked Boris a lot and woke-up very early to...

    To all my Swedish fellow tennis fans...

    Ah well, thank you very much, very helpful. So that's what the guy at the end of the news says, that he doesn't believe Mats? Anyway Mats had already retired in 1997. Tennis officials may have covered many affairs before and after this one so I've always wondered why they even bothered to...

    To all my Swedish fellow tennis fans...

    ... I need your help...! Hi all, I've just came across that video : They're talking about that old cocaine story in which Mats was involved. That day in 1996 when the news became public, I remember that my own world, as a young dude, had collapsed. This is the first time that I have seen a...

    Not that I love seeing Mats being kicked but any new match of him is appreciated. Thanks for sharing. Someone also added the Pernfors-Wilander at the USO 1993. A match that I love for many reasons.

    Laver > Borg > Lendl > Sampras > Federer > Nadal > Djokovic

    :-D You're probably overall right. But we had great chokers in the 80s / 90s too -- especially in the women's tour…

    Who was the prettier serve motion, Pete or Rog?

    To me Federer's motion is just ok as Pete's was great. As for effectiveness, it's all Pete for me.

    Sampras Green Wilson Racquet Question

    Might have been during the 1991 edition. Won over Thomas Muster in the first round but lost in the second against French journeyman Thierry Champion. I have snippets of his matches somewhere on VHS but I remember clearly that I noticed the wasn't using his usual frame.

    Versions of Boris Beckers Puma/estusa mold

    Sure that would be great… but how many of us would be interested in buying such a frame? Boris' fans or nostalgics… people like me (lol) but manufacturers think in terms of money first… and unfortunately they would probably do very few profit with a racket like this. I would sign a petition if...

    Versions of Boris Beckers Puma/estusa mold

    I think that he really tried some Estusa at some point, I might be wrong but, for example, the racket that he used during the 1991 Australian Open was I think an Estusa. I'd tend to believe that the racket with the red butcap has always been an Estusa model. Same for, I think, the Monte-Carlo...

    Versions of Boris Beckers Puma/estusa mold

    Yes, I'd tend to agree. I think in 1991 he was struggling between his old Puma and his new Estusa. The story says that he was not entirely happy with it. In 1992 at the Australian Open, I think he still had the Estusa logo. Later that year he played with no logo so I assume that he switched to...

    Laver > Borg > Lendl > Sampras > Federer > Nadal > Djokovic

    I'm no Borg specialist but I don't think that he was physically done by the age of 26. He had some shoulder issues but he could have played longer if he wanted. I think that he was more mentally done. Borg himself that said if he had a team like top players have nowadays, maybe he could have...

    Match Stats/Report - Pioline vs Edberg, Monte Carlo semi-final, 1993

    I remember that match... the weather had been poor all week, I even wonder if they didn't have to play some of the matches indoors, maybe the final itself, at the local club. One has to check... I guess the conditions didn't help Edberg but we have to give credit to Pioline, a much underrated...

    New Boris Becker Puma/Power Beam/Estusa petition

    How nice it is to see Boris on a tennis court! Read long ago that his hip prevented him from playing, that's too bad. He almost looks in - rather - decent shape, that's cool, I like Boris a with a real racket, for God's sake! The other guy looks outrageous with a Babolat, especially when...
