‘He broke the law’: Andy Murray’s brutal take on Boris Becker saga



British tennis star Andy Murray says he has little sympathy for Boris Becker after the German legend was sentenced to jail in London last week.



Becker was convicted of four charges under Britain’s Insolvency Act in April, including failing to disclose, concealing and removing significant assets following a bankruptcy trial.



The six-times grand slam champion was found guilty of transferring money to his ex-wife Barbara and estranged wife Sharlely after his 2017 bankruptcy.



On Friday, a judge sentenced Becker to two-and-a-half years in jail for hiding $4 million worth of assets and loans to avoid paying his debts.



“It is notable you have not shown remorse or acceptance of your guilt,” judge Deborah Taylor told him on Friday as she sentenced the two-time Australian Open champion at London’s Southwark Crown Court.



“While I accept the humiliation you have felt as a result of these proceedings, you have shown no humility.”

The judge said Becker would serve half his sentence behind bars and the remainder on licence.

World No.1 Novak Djokovic – whom Becker coached for three years – said he was “heartbroken” for his former mentor.
