The former Wimbledon star has been in prison in London for nearly two weeks – but only one person has visited him there so far.
April 29, 2022 marked the low point in the life of the tennis legend. Boris Becker, 54, has been sentenced to two years and six months in prison by Judge Deborah Taylor at Southwark Crown Court in London for delaying bankruptcy. Shock – not only for him, but also for his large mixed family. But who can Boris really count on in the darkest time of his life? Who took a stand in public? Who visited him in about two weeks at Wandsworth Prison in London? We have the facts.
You can see how the inmates of Boris react to the tennis legend in the video above!
Anna Ermakova was not present during the trial of Father Boris Becker
When the verdict was pronounced in the courtroom, his girlfriend Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro, 33, and son, Noah Baker, 28, were always at Boris’s side – but there was no sign of despair (22). And even on Instagram, the youngest offspring of Boris and Barbara Becker (55 years old) has not commented on his father to this day. So does Anna Ermakova, 22, who vacationed in Monaco with her mother Angela, 54, during the process. Neither of them was present in court when the verdict was pronounced. After a few hours, Anna spoke up and said, “Honestly, I’m shocked that he has to go to prison for two and a half years.” She also said that she would visit her father in prison. It is not clear if the visit took place yet.
Noah Baker supported Boris Becker in court
Even Noah, who remained at his side during the trial, was not yet seen by the public near the prison. But at an event in Berlin, just under a week after the verdict was announced. He and his girlfriend Dania attended a new electric car show. Wearing sunglasses, a hat and shorts, he confidently stood in front of the photographers – as if nothing had happened.
A friend of his told Bild newspaper that Noah’s participation in the event should be understood as a clear statement. Even in these tough times, the Bakers didn’t want to hide, but they wanted to fight every fight. He inherited this fighting spirit from his father. And Baker’s biographer, Christian Schumers, is sure of despair. “He (Elias) will definitely visit him, maybe with Barbara too” and “Boris’ relationship, especially with his children, has always been very, very good.” The Baker expert estimates the chances that Baker’s eldest descendants will visit their father in Wandsworth Prison, after all, as good. One who has already done so is Boris’ current partner Lillian.

According to “Bild”, the 33-year-old was allowed to visit the tennis star, who fell a week after he entered a London prison. The couple met in a room with 36 prisoners and their relatives. Nine prison guards monitored things throughout the hour-long meeting. Contrary to what was expected, the couple did not separate the pane of glass: Lillian and Boris sat at a table and were allowed to hold each other’s hands. According to Bild’s information, a Coca-Cola lover, coffee and chocolate bars were brought to prison.
Wife Lily Baker, 45, announced her desire to visit the Wimbledon star with their son Amadeus (12). She told British broadcaster Piers Morgan that Amadeus “cannot wait to see his father”. Nothing is known about the family reunion. So all this is just empty promises? Not excluded – at least Becker’s German lawyer for the media Christian Oliver Moser does not have a kind word about Lilly.
Baker’s lawyer for Lilly: ‘A little restraint would be appropriate here’
Lily Baker, 45, has probably commented most often on Boris of Clan Baker since the sentencing. “My son and I will always stand behind Boris, no matter what,” Lilly said after the verdict was announced in the BUNTE interview, adding: “I will always love Boris, unlike before, but there is always some form of love. He gave me my son Amadeus and when I looked at Amadeus and saw Boris.” She also spoke extensively at RTL, repeatedly emphasizing how closely the Boris women are now connected to each other.
Christian Oliver Moser, Becker’s German media lawyer, has little understanding of Lilly’s current media presence. “Lily Baker gives the impression that she is the family’s spokeswoman. But she is not,” he says in the current issue of Gala. Further: “The person who has been in complicated divorce proceedings with my client for years and had not had serious contact with the Baker family until recently. A little restraint would be appropriate here.”
