Angela Ermakova is a model and the mother of Anna Ermakova, who was conceived on a scandalized fling with three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker. Becker was sentenced to prison time for bankruptcy fraud on Friday, April 29, 2022.
Becker, 54, was convicted in April 2022 for failing to disclose assets related to his bankruptcy case, according to CNN. He was charged with four counts under the British Insolvency Act. The court alleged he failed to declare assets in his bankruptcy case, including a $2.3 million property in Leimen, Germany, his hometown, failing to disclose 75,000 shares in a tech firm and failing to declare a $1.2 million bank loan.
Anna Ermakova told Bild, a German newspaper, that the prison sentence handed to Becker left her “in shock.” She said that she would support him, visit him and give him any help she could offer.

throwback to the early nineties when I worked in a film company in London in Wardour street from 1990 to 1995 and enjoyed the atmosphere of the west and the east being curiously interested and open to each other , exchanging various cultural events , opening its borders to each other and promoting cooperation – Pax Romana of the 20s century – I hope it shall come back to this . Peace is the precursor of what’s written in American Declaration of Independence as right to life and pursuit of happiness, and it’s my birthday wish that we live to see that every human being on earth can enjoy this !
