Boris Becker brought along a roster of tennis stars for his documentary. As announced today, Boom! Boom: The World vs. Boris Becker, consisting of two parts, will be released on AppleTV+ on April 7th. In the documentary presentation press release, the guest tennis players of this story were also announced.
There will be world number one Novak Djokovic, with whom the former tennis player worked in the past: he is one of the few active tennis players featured in the documentary. Among those who have retired, however, the names are different: John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, Novak Djokovic, Mats Wilander and Michael Stich will also be interviewed about Becker's story.
The purpose of the documentary will be to explore every aspect of the man who became a tennis star after winning the Wimbledon championships at the age of just 17, winning 49 career titles, including six Grand Slams and a medal gold medal, in addition to his high-profile personal life.
The story will also focus on the years of trial, which led him to undergo a prison sentence in England in the recent past.
In the press conference to present the documentary, which took place in Berlin last month, Becker declared: "I'm the last person to complain about my life.
I'm 55 years old and I'm very proud of the things I've done. But I made some mistakes. It's very difficult to win Wimbledon at 17. You must be a little crazy. Cross the line. Doing things no one has ever done before to achieve something no one has ever done before.
Having that mindset and living a normal lifestyle is next to impossible. And when the going gets tough I usually improve, I'm not afraid of a tie break, I'm not afraid of a final. But in real life this is sometimes a problem.
I've paid a heavy price for some of the things I've done in the past. I'm a little better today. Hopefully a little smarter. Maybe a little more humble."
