German tennis legend Boris Becker ordered to pay wedding fee

A Swiss court has ruled that German tennis legend Boris Becker must pay the preacher who presided over his nuptials $3465 in a long-running dispute over the wedding fee.
Becker had refused to pay the minister the money he requested for marrying him and Dutch model Sharley Kerssenberg in St Moritz, complaining it was nearly five times his regular charge.
“It’s a question of principle,” he said at a hearing.
The pastor said he charged more than usual because of the extra work he had to put in for the wedding in June 2009, including television interviews.
The wedding, the second for triple Wimbledon winner Becker, took place in front of 200 guests at the upmarket ski resort and was screened by German television channel RTL, to whom the ex-player had sold the rights.
