I find myself this morning wondering what Boris Becker thinks of modern technology. On one hand, the Hawk-Eye tracking system likely would have overturned some spurious out calls and garnered him a few more points. On the other hand, his supermodel fiancée just dumped him by text message.
Former World No. 1 Becker got the news from Sandy Meyer-Woelden, 15 years his junior, in a text message last month. Then, to make sure he got the message, she sent it five more times. Ouch. But don’t feel too bad for Becker. In an odd twist of fate, it was exactly one year ago today that we posted about Becker dumping his girlfriend — by text message. Textabout is fair play.
BECKER BIDS AUF WIEDERSEN TO GIRLFRIEND BY TEXTING: It’s no longer 40-love for Boris Becker, as the former tennis star dumps his girlfriend right before his birthday:
The LONDON SUN reports that the day before he turned 40, Becker sent a text message to 31-year-old Sharlely Kerssenberg, telling her not to bother coming to his birthday bash.She was upset that break-up wasn’t done face-to-face, lamenting, “The way it was done hurt me deeply. That was anything but cool.”
Yet, Sharley can’t seem to stay mad at Boris, saying, “He is the love of my life. He was the perfect boyfriend for me, a true gentleman. I admire him so much.”
What’s not to admire about a then-married guy who had a 5-second tryst in a hotel cupboard that resulted in a child born out of wedlock?
