Djokovic heartbroken over former coach Becker’s jail sentence
As Nadal prepares to return to competition at Madrid Open, he admits his fitness ‘far from perfect’ after rib injury
World No.1 Novak Djokovic said on Sunday that he was “heartbroken” after his former coach Boris Becker was sent to prison earlier last week in a bankruptcy case in the UK.
The 54-year-old German was jailed for two years and six months by a London court on Friday for hiding hundreds of thousands of pounds of assets after he was declared bankrupt.
“Just heartbroken, I mean, for him. He’s a friend, long-time friend, a coach for three, four years, someone I consider close in my life and has contributed a lot to my success in my career,” Djokovic told reporters at the Madrid Open. ..
