Meanwhile, Becker’s Wimbledon finalist medal from 1990, when he was beaten by Swede Stefan Edbergis will also be up for grabs at the auction.

The 51-year-old was declared bankrupt in 2017 but reports suggest that even an auction will not help him get rid of his debt which is over millions of pounds. Becker, a six-time Grand Slam winner, won 49 titles and more than 20 million euros in prize money during his tennis career.
