Wimbledon champion, Pat Cash, says God has sent " money for him when he got almost broke after divorcing his wife
Wimbledon champion Pat Cash claims that God "sent him" money when he was almost broke after divorcing his wife.
The 54-year-old tennis star told The Mail on Sunday that "miracles" of money happened 20 times during his lifetime.
He said: "Whenever I need money, God sends some.
Just enough to pay the bills. This happens all the time. Whenever I'm in trouble or paralyzed, I get a new contract, renew a contract, or receive another stream of income. This happened 20 times. Is weird.
"I had legal bills and financial commitments to my family and ex-wife – and nowhere to live."
Cash, who won the men's Wimbledon title in 1987, credits his faith in helping him in the darkest moments of his life.
He said: "I remember one day looking at the sky and saying: God, please take all my finances? & # 39;
In a few hours a friend of mine called me and asked me to play a tennis event that paid several thousand pounds and the highest rate I had ever won for a pair of doubles.
Cash spoke in the past about his financial problems, saying that playing tennis professionally from an early age left him with little knowledge about personal finances.
