Davidovich Fokina – memories of Boris

Save

When Alejandro Davidovich Fokina loped into the Royal Box to receive his boys’ singles championship trophy Sunday, it was like a reincarnation.

Big and tall with a thick mane of blonde hair, a man-child not quite grown into his body, it harkened back to another big, towheaded man-child who accepted the men’s championship trophy on the same court some 35 years ago.

Davidovich Fokina is 18. His current ATP Tour ranking is No. 637. Boris Becker won the big prize at 17. But there is something of Boris in him, no?
