Boris Becker is a German professional tennis player.
Boris is the son of Elvira (Pisch) and Karl-Heinz Becker. His mother’s family fled Czechoslovakia during the Russian invasion. Her family, which was Catholic, has Jewish relatives, but it is not clear if Becker’s mother has Jewish ancestry, herself. Becker stated this in an article in New Straits Times (December 5, 1999).
Boris has a son with his wife, Dutch model Sharlely “Lilly” Kerssenberg; two children with his former wife, actress and designer Barbara Feltus; and a daughter with Russian model Angela Ermakova.
Boris’s maternal grandparents were Leopold Pisch and Amalia Repper.

He looks more Slav than German.
His mother, Elvira (Pisch), and her family, fled Czechoslovakia during the Russian invasion. Her family has Jewish members, but it is not clear if Becker’s mother has Jewish ancestry, herself.
That doesn’t make sense.
My favourite player of all time!
Do Kudrow, Kunis, Trachtenberg look like EACH OTHER?
Besides of that, you should compare him with f.e. Efron
and not with fool jews
Oh, sh… “Full jews”, not “fool jews”, ha-ha-ha
His hair is NOT BLOND. Have you never seen him as he was
young? He is is RED. The only man in the world, who dyes
his hair blond. lol
@nnnnn- judging by the roots of his hair, he is originally a red head. I’m guessing he will look very very unattractive with his red hair cos even the blond hair doesn’t do him any favours. He should have tried being a brunette. It usually works for many.
As he played tennis, he had his origin, red hair
