You’ll feel doubly depressed if you superimpose this tale of Boris Becker’s utter penury with those indelible, faded-colour images from Wimbledon, 1985: hands aloft, the quivering frame of a flaxen-­haired 17-year-old after he won the championship point. Becker, who was declared bankrupt, is now selling off his silverware: replica grand slam trophies, medals, clothing, watches, racquets, socks...to raise money that would keep him afloat. Fiscal prudence might not be Becker’s strongest serve, but can they not organise a charity match for him?

When you keep on winning an event, piling on trophies—12 of them—an entire generation of people would mostly have seen you triumph. Well that’s Rafael Nadal, the French Open and an admiring horde of ballgirls. As Boris Becker put it, the genius triumvirate of Rafa, Federer and Djokovic has kept everyone from winning anything since 2017. Learn from them, ye hopeless young men.

Unlike some others, she’s won 23 Grand Slams, and a damn sight better qua­li­f­ied to set on-court fashion. Last year’s post­­par­­tum catsuit wasn’t a hit in Roland Garros. This year, Serena’s cape-like outfit has the words ‘champion’, ‘queen’, ‘mother’ and ‘goddess’ on it, in French. A exercise in self­­adv­ertisement, but we excuse that.
