Boris Becker explains how Sania Mirza brings him good luck

Kolkata: Former World No 1 tennis player and ex-coach of Serb superstar Novak Djokovic, Boris Becker on Saturday said current top women`s doubles player Sania Mirza brings him luck and vice versa.

Becker, who is here for the 25k Kolkata marathon, was asked about his association with the Indian players. Answering the question, the iconic German said: "I am good friends with all three. In fact the player I see the most is (Sania Mirza) because she is so good and No.1 in doubles so I see her in most tournaments on the final weekend.

"We have this good luck routine and every time we are having lunch and she is with her doubles partner and I am with the team, she is winning the doubles tournament. So Sania insisted on all the important tournaments that we have lunch together because I bring her luck and she brings me luck," the 49-year old revealed.

Becker said this is the reason he is closest with Sania. "I am closest with her. And with all others I am good friends and we know each other for a very long time," he said.
