How did Boris Becker (54) do it, journalist Chris Atkins will ask. The former inmate of Wandsworth, the same prison as the German, told the “Bild”: “Prisoners wait months and even years to get into this part!” Becker managed the feat in less than three weeks.
According to information from “Bild”, the tennis legend has been moved from his Block E to the “Trinity Wing”. In what is said to be the most comfortable part of prison, he enjoys a solitary cell.
“Do sport and socialize”
The “place of well-being” has even more to offer: things should be less strict and the prisoners have more freedom. «Trinity has a somewhat more relaxed supervision, here prisoners have more opportunities to leave their cells. For example, to work, to educate yourself, to do sports and to make social contacts. »

Atkins spoke of his activities in the “luxury area” of the prison: “I’ve done seven jobs at Trinity. This included managing the cash register, handing out notes with visitor information and handing them out in the canteen. You can also work in the library and in the laundry. I also helped out in the education department.”
Becker rose in the hierarchy
For this transfer from Becker to be possible at all, the prisoner must have been promoted from the “standard level” that every newcomer receives to the “IEP level” (Incentives and Earned Privileges).
In addition, the English newspaper “The Sun” reports that Becker should even teach certain inmates English. In court, the ex-tennis professional claimed an interpreter. (nab)
