Wimbledon legend Boris Becker has proposed to his new sweetheart - who was just a one-year-old baby when he first conquered the Centre Court in 1985.
Boris, 40, popped the question to beautiful Alessandra 'Sandy' Meyer-Wolden, 24, the daughter of his late manager Axel Meyer-Wolden, at the weekend.
He proposed to her on the island of Sardinia, Sandy said last night in Germany.
'I didn't know anything about it, I was totally surprised,' she said.
Boris presented her with a ring with two diamonds.
'One represents Boris and one represents me,' said Sandy, who is a jewellery designer.
The two have been rumoured to be a pair since early this month after paparazzi caught them on the Spanish island of Formentera and later on Sardinia.
They first met when her father, Axel, was Becker's manager. He died in 1997.
The engaged are now flying to New York to plan their nuptials but they have yet to release additional details.
'Our relationship is completely serious,' she said.
