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.

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...
