Tennis champion Boris Becker is in conversation with Vir Sanghvi.
Boris Becker, Former Tennis World Champion
Boris Becker entranced tennis fans when in 1985, aged just seventeen, he became the youngest ever player to lift the famous cup at the All England Club. The German became a tennis legend, taking the Wimbledon title twice more. His career haul of 49 titles included two Australian Open crowns and one US Open success. Boris now plays on the Senior ATP Tour and Billie Jean King's World Team Tennis tour. He remains a hugely popular figure at Wimbledon and commentates there for the BBC each year.
Three time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker reflects on how tennis has changed since he won his Grand Slam first title at 17, as today's stars like Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer now play a large role in driving business, advertising, and social media.
