Former tennis star Boris Becker has launched his own fashion range.

The 37-year-old unveiled his sports casual collection in Munich, Germany yesterday (04JUL05) - a line he developed with German sportswear company Volk.

Becker revealed at the launch he gained inspiration from tennis as well as his other sporting loves - baseball and cricket.

He said at the launch - almost 20 years to the day after he won his first Wimbledon championship aged just 17, "I've been sitting in front of a white sheet of paper and tried to figure out which colours, which design suits me.

"Twenty years after I won Wimbledon... another dream of mine has come true with my own fashion line."
