German tennis pro, Boris Becker, nicknamed 'Boom Boom Becker' for his fast serves made history in 1985 when he broke a 94-year-old Wimbledon record. He became the youngest player to win at the hallowed lawns of Center Court at Wimbledon. He was only 17 years 228 days old when he beat American Kevin Curren in a closely fought contest.

He successfully defended his title the following year when he won the Wimbledon Singles' Championships beating Ivan Lendl in straight sets. He is the only player to have won 2 Wimbledon Men's Singles' Championships before turning 20. Becker won 6 Grand Slam Singles titles including 3 Wimbledon titles in his career.
