No, Wimbledon’s youngest ever champ is not actually denouncing the romantic ideals of coupling up but with the most prestigious tennis tournament starting on Monday Boris is making himself available to all you amateur tennis players (and hey professionals as well) around the world to give you playing advice, hopefully helping you avoid a tennis score of love.
Polo Ralph Lauren, the official outfitter of Wimbledon, is hosting the first ever Legends Clinic, a live interactive virtual tennis clinic featuring tennis great Boris Becker. He is pairing up with Annabel Croft to volley answers to the questions served at him by presenter Annabel from tennis enthusiasts. He will also demonstrate techniques and offers hints and tips on how to improve your game during this one-hour interactive clinic which will be streamed live online.
“This is a dynamic way of bringing the sport of tennis to a virtual reality and providing our customers around the world a unique experience to personally connect with one of the world’s premier tennis legends,” said David Lauren, Senior Vice President of Advertising, Marketing and Corporate Communications at Ralph Lauren.

Now all we have to do is wait in line in SW19 for our spot on the lawns where I am hoping it will be strawberries and cream all-round!
