LONDON - A Swiss court has ordered Boris Becker to pay 1,200 pounds to the pastor who presided over his second wedding to the Dutch model Sharlely Kerssenberg in 2009, as a settlement of a long-running dispute.
Becker, a three-time Wimbledon tennis champion and six-time Grand Slam champion, was also charged 2,257 Swiss francs in legal fees at the hearing in Grison, according to his website, reports the Telegraph.
However the sum is much lower than that sought by the minister who claimed he was due a fee of some 9,600 francs. Becker had argued the cleric had given him an estimate of between 1,750 and 2,100 francs. (ANI)
