Three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker has revealed his choice to have turned to cosmetic surgery in 2010. The 43-year-old tennis star admitted to "getting some work done" on his face this year, according to sporting news site Tennis Talk. Speaking on UK TV show Daybreak, the star responded to questions about looking good for his age by saying: "Its a dark arena here so you dont see my wrinkles. I also had a face lift recently and I coloured my hair"I turned 43 this week and winning Wimbledon was 25 years ago I do feel very much like Im 43 now!" With such a long and distinguished career behind him, you'd be forgiven for thinking Boris is older than he is - despite his fresh faced look. Snatching glory at a young age, Boris was the youngest ever Wimbledon winner a 17 and subsequently became a six-time Grand Slam singles champion and an Olympic gold medallist. Last year, the star also provided commentary for the BBC at Wimbledon and he continues to enjoy a successful commercial career today. Boris isn't the first big tennis name to turn to a cosmetic surgeon, but players such as Romanian star Simona Halep had very different reasons. Simona chose breast reduction surgery earlier this year, as she found her bust was overly large and making it difficult for her to reach her true potential on the court.
