Speaking to Sportskeeda about his visit to India, Becker said, “I am delighted to be in India and it has been a terrific experience. My association with PUMA is fantastic and it is a really stylish brand with top quality apparel. Other than that, it has been superb interacting with fans and people who love tennis. I am happy to know I have so many followers in India.”

One of the guests, present at the party, said, “I am absolutely loving this experience. To be in the presence of a legendary athlete is amazing as a sports fan. He is pretty cool I must say and Noah is playing some excellent music.”

Guests flocked to the DJ enclosure, where both Beckers were entertaining the crowd, one with his music and the other with persona. Boris Becker, while munching on pizza and mildly dancing to the music, posed for photographs with awestruck fans, who wanted their piece of digital memorabilia. The 49-year-old German checked out the sneaker collection as well and seemed to like it a lot albeit not surprisingly.
