Becker, who hid assets after he was declared bankrupt, was supported at his insolvency trial in London by Lillian who visited him in jail.
The three-time Wimbledon champion, 55, returned to Germany this week after serving eight months of a two-year, six-month sentence.
A source said: “It’s mixed emotions for Boris.
“He’s thrilled and relieved to be home for Christmas and is deeply in love with Lilian.
“He’s told pals he’ll get down on one knee, and that she is ‘The One’.
“However, his services are no longer required at Wimbledon, his favourite gig. It’s understood his team haven’t been told so he’s sure to be gutted.
“But he can’t get back into the UK, so covering it wouldn’t be easy.”
Twice-divorced Becker, a Wimbledon pundit since 2002, has four children.
