Boris Becker moved to more comfortable part of prison following his complaints

German tennis legend Boris Becker has been relocated to a much more comfortable part of his prison after complaining that his cell was too small. In late April, Becker was sentenced to two and a half years. Becker was found guilty of hiding millions worths of assets after declaring bankrupt and that landed him a two and a half years sentence.

After complaining about the size of his cell, Becker got his wish as he was relocated from Block E to the Trinity Wing. Chris Atkins, a former inmate, described the Trinity Wing as "more relaxed" than Block E.

“Trinity has more relaxed supervision. Prisoners have more opportunities to leave their cells, for example, to work, educate yourself, do sports and socialise," Atkins told The Mirror.

Becker was having 'rough time' when he first got to prison

Becker was sentenced to two and a half years but he is expected to serve only half of it.

When he first got to prison, he was reportedly "shocked" by the food served and the lack of higyene inside the prison. “He is having a rough time and the worst thing of all is the food. He cannot believe how bad it is and how small the portions are.

One of his first meals was corned beef, which wasn't good. But he will have to get used to it. He is also shocked at the lack of hygiene at the prison because it's so overcrowded," a source told The Sun. After splitting with Novak Djokovic in 2016, Becker worked mainly as a tennis expert and commentator.

When Djokovic was asked about Becker being jailed, the Serb described him as "long-time friend" and said he was "just heartbroken" to see him being jailed. Just a few days ago, Tennis365 reported that Becker is "very confident" he will be back home to Germany by Christmas.
