German tennis legend Boris Becker, in a sensational revelation, said that he will apply for British citizenship.
Currently traveling with world number one Novak Djokovic as a coach, the 47-year-old said to a leading British TV channel that he will eventually apply for British citizenship having already established a home in Wimbledon.
As a break-out star in the 1980s, Becker win the Wimbledon three times in 1986, 1987 and 1989. The former top ranked player also won Australian Open (1991, 1996) and US Open (1989), but failed to win the French Open.
At the Roland Garros this year, he was helping the Serbian fulfill a career slam, which also denied him, but their bid failed to materialised, running onto a red-hot Swiss Stan Wawrinka.
Despite the disappointment, they have already crossed the English Channel as Djokovic bids to equal the German’s record of three wins at the All England Club. The 129th edition of the famous grass-court tournament will start on June 29.
