After countless negative headlines: Andrea Petković defends Boris Becker: "I would defend him with my life"

Boris Becker has made many enemies in recent decades. But the tennis legend can still count on a few companions. Like tennis player Andrea Petković, who defended "Bobbele" in the NDR 90.3 podcast "Feel Hamburg".

"He was one of the most generous ex-tennis players I've seen," said the former player about Becker. "Whenever I needed advice or when I had questions, he was very generous with his time. He always sat down with us, always had coffee with us to share his experiences," said Petković.

Her loyalty is therefore "full with Boris Becker", according to the 35-year-old, who herself had to struggle with injuries and setbacks during her career.

"I would defend Boris with my life," said Petković. Presumably not all of Becker's former companions would express themselves in the same way as she did.

The documentary "Boris Becker: The Rise and Fall of a Legend" (running on Paramount from August 4, 2023) is currently causing a stir. It not only expresses Becker's former partners - Alessandra Meyer-Wölden and his wife Sharlely Becker - but also lawyers who had to do with the tennis star.

"Boris arrived and he was very presumptuous. I said to him: 'Boris, you may have been the greatest in your seat, but now you're coming to mine,'" recalls Samuel Burstyn, Barbara Becker's former lawyer, who represented Boris' first wife in the divorce.
