Boris Becker came to court with his partner Lillian de Carvalho Montero.

Boris Becker, a three-time Wimbledon champion, was sentenced by a British court on Friday to two and a half years in prison for defaulting on more than $ 3 million in assets and debt.

Becker, 54, was convicted under four sections of the British Bankruptcy Act.

The lawsuit alleges that Becker filed for bankruptcy in June 2017 after failing to pay more than $ 3.7 million for Becker’s luxury residence on the Spanish island of Mallorca.

Judge Deborah Taylor, a former German tennis player and former world number one, said she did not regret or accept the charge.
