Boris Becker sent tennis star Alexander Zverev recovery wishes from prison after his injury at the French Open. That’s what Zverev’s brother and manager Mischa said. Becker wished him all the best.
After retiring due to injury in the semi-finals of the French Open, Alexander Zverev even received encouraging words from Boris Becker, who is currently in prison. “He also received a message from Boris. Boris said he followed what was happening in the tournament and wished him all the best and a quick and good recovery,” said Zverev’s brother and manager Mischa Zverev on Sunday as a TV expert at Eurosport.
Becker was sentenced to two and a half years in London at the end of April, the second half of which is expected to be suspended. He had concealed assets worth millions from his insolvency administrators. Becker is being held in Huntercombe Prison in Nuffield, about 70 kilometers west of London.
Zverev twisted his right foot in the semifinals against Spaniard Rafael Nadal on Friday in Paris and had to give up the game at Stade Roland Garros. On Saturday, the Olympic champion announced that he had torn several side ligaments in his foot. An exact diagnosis and the answer to the question of how long Zverev has to pause should be revealed by further investigations in Germany on Monday.
However, Mischa Zverev believes that the injury will not throw his brother off track. “I think he will come back even stronger, even more mature, even calmer, more self-confident,” said Mischa Zverev.
