Boris Gets Inducted

Two days later our man was once again recognized for his greatness by being inducted into the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame in Toronto, Canada. Becker won the tournament title in 1986. He also treated fans to an exihibition match with Canadian Daniel Nestor, which Nestor won.

This is the only picture I could find from the week's event. Seriously. It's Boris and one of his old hitting partners. He even took the time to have lunch with him while he was there. Such a sweetheart.

Boris Does Fashion

And on the 19th Becker got dolled up to attend the ELLE Fashion Star award ceremony during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. Check out the gloves on Lagerfeld (as in Karl, Mr. House of Chanel, far right). Those wacky fashionistas.

Boris at Mercedes Cup

And on July 8th Boris and the boys took in a match at the Mercedes Cup event in Stuttgart, Germany.

I love seeing him spend time with the kids.

Boris Autographs Mercedes

And as part of the 46664 events, Boris lended his signature to a brand new Mercedes C350. The car, which contained autographs from celebrities including Annie Lenox, Amy Winehouse and Peter Gabriel, was set to be auctioned off with all proceeds to go to the 46664 foundation.

Boris Likes Veal

Here's an interesting bit, a day in the life of our hero. Read all about it here.

Boris at 46664 Concert

And two days later he attended the 46664 Concert, featuring performers such as Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Simple Minds and Will Smith.

Here he parties with British tailor to the stars, Oswald Boateng.

I love to see him let loose.

Boris Honors Mandela

Boy, our boy has a busy schedule this month.

Here he is on June 25th attending a dinner celebrating his pal Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday in Hyde Park. The event also raised money for The Nelson Mandela Foundation and 46664, the global initiative benefitting the Nelson Mandela Foundation's work to fight the spread of AIDS.

He's so passionate.

Boris at IWC Laureus Polo Cup 2008

Ok. Seriously. This has to stop. Can this man get any hotter? When we figure out how to clone humans, I'll be first in line to get my own, personal BB#2!

Here he is in London on June 22nd at the IWC Laureus Polo Cup 2008.

IWC makes kickass watches for hotties like Boris and Laureus is the charitable foundation with the sports academy that includes 46 of the greatest living sporting legends, of which Becker, of course, is one.

Boris Out With The Boys

It's a been a while since we've seen the kids! The proud dad and his sons Noah and Elias attended the Ralph Lauren Wimbledon Garden Party on June 21st in London.

Looks like Noah is still rockin' the fro. Nice.

Boris Takes In Some Footy

Remember Euro 2008? Yes I'm way behind. Well, Boris took in a match, Austria vs. Germany on June 16th. And no, that's not another girlfriend, it's Elvira Netzer, wife of former footballer and current TV commentator Guenter Netzer.

Germany won this one and went on to the finals, but untimately lost to Spain on June 29th.

She does look quite happy to be in the company of our Boris, doesn't she?

Boris Does the Tango

Here he is in another one of those clever PokerStars commercials.

Boris at Monaco GP

Boris rolled solo two days later at the Monaco GP. Of course he did! So slick!

Boris & Lily? Together Again?

Ah-Em...I'm clearing my throat. Boy does our boy know how to keep us on our toes! Here he is with Lily, aka his ex-girlfriend model Sharlely Kerssenberg, at the Better World Awards in Monaco on May 23rd. Huh??

Well, those of us who have been following Boris lately know the reunion didn't last long. And if you haven't been following along, stay tuned. And take note of the date. Again, here he is with Lily on May 23rd! 3 months later?? He doesn't waste any time!

Boris at the ARAG World Team Cup

This pic is too hot not to include. Check out Mr. Becker taking in the match between Nicolas Kiefer and Simone Bolelli during day four of the ARAG World Team Cup on May 21st in Duesseldorf. Nice shades.

Yogi Boris

Here's a random piece. Boris talks yoga and meditation with artistic yoga teacher Bharat Thakur. Nice t-shirt.

More Boris in Monte Carlo

I spoke too soon, if you haven't already clicked on the link, here are the pics:

Boris's Girlfriend?

Ok, I can't give you pics, but check out this X17 story about our man.

I love it when he shows up in U.S. media, but I think they got it wrong when they label the chic in the pic as his girlfriend.

Boris on EPT Monte Carlo Day 3

Um, so I think he did well? I'll let him explain. I apologize, I know nothing about poker.

Boris on EPT Monte Carlo Day 1B

Not sure how he did yet, but let's watch him talk about his poker prowess in his own words. Notice the sexy gum chewing.

Boris at EPT Monte Carlo

Ok, let's try picking this up again. Boris finally made his PokerStars debut at the EPT Monte Carlo on April 13th. Let's stay tuned to see how he fared.

Boris Plays Tennis

Then the jet-setter made his way to Madrid for his Madrid's Masters Senior match against Jim Courier on March 29th, 2008.

He lost.

Boris Checks Out Jay-Z and Mary J.

I'm back! After a short hiatus plagued by too much work and not enough time for writing, let's pick up from where I left off (kinda).

His hotness was in Miami on March 22nd taking in the sights and sounds of The Heart of the City Tour featuring hip hop superstars Mary J. Blige and Jay-Z.

I wonder what his favorite song is...

Boris in Top Spin 3

Check out the Boris Becker screen shot released by 2K from its upcoming Top Spin 3 (Nintendo Wii, PS3, Xbox 360).
Tentatively scheduled to be released on May 20, Becker is included as one of the "Classic Legends" gamers will have the chance to play with. It's touted as the most realistic tennis video game to date. Ooh, I wanna play!

Classic legends are not available on all platforms, however. What's up with that? Other available players include James Blake, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and a few of the chics.

Boris at Laureus

The 9th Annual Laureus World Sports Awards took place earlier this week in St. Petersburg, Russia. Here is Boris looking ultra hot as he takes part in the Media Conferences on February 17th.

He also hung out with Nadia Comaneci at the Welcome Reception later that night.

On to the main event on Monday night, Boris is photographed on the red carpet with Kyle McLachlan from Sex in the City.

And here Boris is spotted cutting a rug with a mystery brunette. Go Boris, it’s ya birthday!

The Laureus World Sports Awards is the only global sports awards honoring the greatest sportsmen and women across all sports each year. Boris is one of the 45 elite members of Laureus World Sports Academy, the ultimate sporting jury which votes each year to determine the winners of the awards.

Boris Pecks Kylie

Well, Boris's health is back. He was at the Golden Camera awards in Berlin on Wednesday, February 6th where he presented Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue with the award for Best International Act.

And you should have heard the buzz on the blogosphere after Boris gave her a customary peck on the cheek while presenting the award!

I guess it's been so long since Boris has been single for so long that we're eager to pair the sexy charmer with a lady. I mean, I haven't been able to link him to any woman since the split with Lily in November. Surely Boris hasn't been celebate since then???

Boris Folds

I'm sure you were all eagerly awaiting the results of Boris' first European Poker Tour showing as a member of Team PokerStars, but unfortunately he has fallen ill and doctors have insisted he not travel.

The EPT Dortmund, Germany will have to go on without him. And we'll have to wait a little while longer to watch him serve aces on the felt (sorry, I tried, I don't know anything about poker).

Becker is slated to show his skills at the Monte Carlo Grand Final, April 12-17, 2008.

Get well soon BB!

Boris does Naomi?? Nah...

You gotta love the folks at Hello Magazine. They're reporting that while attending the Hugo Boss show at Berlin Fashion Week last weekend, our man Boris Becker chatted up supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Much was made of the fact that she was seen laughing at his jokes.

He's a hot, funny guy, can you blame her?

I like Naomi (she's Jamaican!!) and of course I love Boris, but I don't think there's anything to it.

Boris has a Question

I love a man that can laugh at himself.

Ok, I think this makes up for me being away for so long.

Stay tuned to see how Boris does in his PokerStars debut this week!

Classic Boris Becker and Mika Häkkinen Commercial

Ooh, and some sexy classic Boris, courtesy, once again, of Mercedes.

Boris Becker Mercedes Commercial

And just for fun, here's Boris and Mika Hakkinen for Mercedes-Benz.

Boris at Hugo Boss

And I'm not done. Boris was in Berlin yesterday attending the Hugo Boss fashion show, part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The best dressed man in sport? This guy doesn't think so.

Ok, so maybe not back in his playing days, but you have to admit, he's come a long way.

I'm digging his "Served Chilled" line.

You need more cool options for chics though, BB. Check out the rest of the Boris Becker Tennis Collection here.

Boris on Tennis

And, Boris is quite the tennis predictor. While in Doha, the legend sited Novak Djokovic as one of the players that could challenge King Federer's reign (yes I'm giving him all the credit).

"I think Federer is the favorite to win the Australian Open, but Nadal and Djokovic could surprise him in Australia or in the future," Becker said. Read more of what he had to say about match-fixing and power players here.

And here's a little trivia: Djokovic is often described as a mix of Boom Boom Becker and Yannick Noah. Boris named his first son after the former French player.

And congrats to Djokovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga! I'm looking forward to watching more of both of them.

Boris at Qatar Masters

Yes, I owe my faithful readers an apology - I have been crazy busy and not able to give Mr. Becker and this blog the attention it deserves. But all of that is about to change!

I never did find out how he spent new years (he's slick!) but we'll re-start this blog with his appearance at the Qatar Masters Golf Tournament. Boris participated in the Pro-Am in Doha on Wednesday, January 23rd.

He just gets hotter and hotter...
