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.

    That doesn’t make sense.

    My favourite player of all time!

    “jew are not jew” is not a serious source. They are criminals and
    must be forbidden. Neverseless, Becker is really partly jewish.
    (he told himself). His father is german catholic and mother or grandmother is Tchech jewish. He has RED hair. Red hair is untipical
    for german people

      Most people didn’t understand the “sense” “family has
      jewish members, but he’s not a jew himself” In Germany
      “jew” is a religion and only religion, and not smb, who
      has 1/4 jewish blood. A journalist, who calles f.e.
      Helmut Schmidt a “jew”, would lose his job.

      He WAS rich. He became bankrot after all his marriages
      and affairs.
      He told, his maternal grandparents (or only grandmother?) were jews and converted to catholic
      to survive Holocaust.
      In Germany “Jew” is just a religion, but not an ethnicy.
      That means, “there were jews in his family, but he’s not
      jew”

      • nnnnn says:

        Hitler killed jews, who converted to Christianity…if
        he could unmask them. Quote: “Polanski’s (Liebling)
        parents converted to Christianity to escape Holocaust”
        It was a common praxis, unfortunatelly not always
        successful. (google, f.e. “Edgar Jacobi”) In any case, Boris told, she has some (ethnic) jewish rootes.
