Boris Becker

Log Line 

  • Wimbledon, July 7th 1985: A seventeen-year-old raises his fists into the sky over London. 15,000 people are screaming with enthusiasm in the stadium, as do millions in front of the TV screens around the world. A youngster named Boris Becker has just won the most important and most traditional tennis tournament in the world. People know where they were when John F. Kennedy was assassinated, when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and when Boris Becker won in Wimbledon. And his magical attraction is still unbroken today. In November 2017 Boris Becker turns 50 years old. The film tells his story. Looking back, from rise – to fall – to rise. About dazzling moments and heavy setbacks in his career and his personal life. About his fight back to the top of the world. But above all, we accompany Becker in the present day.
