Tennis legend Boris Becker was recently convicted on charges of fraud. Becker was accused of moving a large amount of money after he declared bankruptcy to hide the funds. Boris now knows his fate.

The six-time grand slam winner was found guilty earlier this month. The judge sentenced Boris Becker to 2.5 years behind bars for the crime. He also tore into Becker, saying that he was a criminal who showed no remorse, according to TMZ Sports.

“I take into account what has been described as your fall from grace. You have lost your career and reputation and all of your property as a result of your bankruptcy.

You have not shown remorse, acceptance of your guilt and have sought to distance yourself from your offending and your bankruptcy.

While I accept your humiliation as part of the proceedings, there has been no humility.”

Boris Becker was facing up to seven years behind bars. The judge thought the public humiliation was enough to cut that down to two and a half years. Now that he is heading to prison, Boris is probably starting to feel that remorse the court said was missing during the trial.
