The mother of Boris Becker stated, “I can’t go visit him in jail.”

Boris Becker’s mother, Elvira Pisch, disclosed that she had only let him to call her son once starting on the day of his incarceration. She said to The Sun of Great Britain: “I can’t fly to Boris anymore. I am unable to visit him in jail.

Though it saddens me greatly, this is unavoidable. Because of my damaged femur, I must use crutches or a walker to walk. Just one call from Boris to me. In Germany, it was Mother’s Day. He assured me that everything is OK and that I don’t need to be concerned about him.”

John McEnroe used the BBC’s microphones to address Becker during the Wimbledon competition: “Boris, you are beloved. My friend, we all miss you.” The family of Novak Djokovic, who has been under Becker’s tutelage for approximately three years, has also received support.

“I respect Boris a lot and I think of him as a member of my family. We’ve experienced many amazing things together. I find it heartbreaking to see what’s happening, and I can only imagine how difficult it must be for his family.”

Becker’s problem

Since the end of April, Boris Becker has been incarcerated in London to complete his 2.5-year term. The Bankruptcy Court in London had accused the former German champion of being bankrupt because he had a significant debt of roughly $6 million that he was no longer able to pay.

The dispute centered on a loan that Becker had previously agreed to repay to several lenders, including the private bank Arbuthnot Latham & Co. It was unsuccessful to try to pay off the loan by mortgaging several real estate properties, particularly one in Mallorca.

Due to Becker’s inability to fulfill his obligations under the repayment arrangement, the lenders decided to take legal action. The Southwark judge ultimately chose to sentence Becker to 30 months in prison following a protracted trial. The German will be detained in a semi-liberty environment for the latter portion of his sentence after serving half of it in jail.
