Boris It seems everyone has an opinion of what's going on in Tiger Woods' life these days, including tennis great Boris Becker.

Becker said during a television interview today that he sympathizes with Woods since he experienced a similar situation during his divorce in 2001. Still, Becker said he was more than a little surprised by the ongoing saga:

"I was shocked by the dimensions, the frequency," Becker said in regard to the Woods' alleged affairs. "All the things he would have had to cover up, just logistically -- how did he manage to do it? He must constantly be changing phones to cover up his tracks."

Becker, who's met Woods on past occasions, said it would be "damn hard" for Woods to repair his marriage.
