Borris Becker was found guilty by the Munich District Court of making false statements regarding his tax filings. The investigation began when he was still playing professionally. He was later charged with withholding taxes worth around $5 million. Although he cleared the taxes, he was still sentenced to two years in prison for attempting to settle the six-year legal process. In 2020, he failed to hand over his Wimbledon trophies while he was in the process of liquidating his assets. This resulted in criminal charges against him.

In 1990, Becker owned a 60-acre estate in Mallorca. He later handed over this property to the bank to settle the debt. This villa was worth a whopping $9 million.
