BORIS LAUNCHES LEGAL BID FOR CUSTODY OF HIS DAUGHTER ANNA

8 NOVEMBER 2007

Wimbledon star Boris Becker is to seek custody of his seven-year-old daughter Anna. The little girl was the result of a passionate liaison between the former tennis player - who is also the father of two boys from his previous marriage - and Russian model Angela Ermakova.

The move was prompted by Boris' concerns over Anna's appearances in the media with her mother. "I have a custody order for my (sons), but not unfortunately for my daughter. Believe me, I will fight for the right," Becker declared in an interview with a German magazine.

In an incident which is said to have frustrated her father, Anna recently made headlines in Germany over a dispute about working children. Health and safety officials fined a cosmetics company for using her image illegally.
