ATP leader Serbia’s Novak Djokovic has been sentenced to life in prison by Boris Becker, who was sentenced to life in prison in a personal bankruptcy case.
“It simply came to our notice then. He was a friend, a long time friend, he trained me for three or four years, a person I consider close, and he contributed a lot to the success of my career. I will not go into the details of the verdict because I can not do so, but as a friend I feel very sorry for him. Not much to say. I hope he goes through this period and I hope he can live his life after he gets out of jail, I don’t know if he can use the word ‘normal’ because the life of the goer is definitely different. To prison, especially for so long. I had no idea how things would be for him. I pray for him, ”Djokovic was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
