Becker news not getting better


The London media is on the Boris Becker bankruptcy story  like a loan shark on a late payer.

The latest bit is that the 49-year-old, who lives in Wimbledon part-time, took out a $2.6 million US loan from a British billionaire – three years ago.


Per The Telegraph, via the Times of London, Richard Caudwell’s daughter worked in Becker’s London office.

But here’s the eye-opening part: the interest rate on Caudwell’s loan was a reported 25 per cent. The Telegraph said it was repaid, albeit behind schedule.

This weekend, Becker is playing in a poker tournament in Vienna.
