The guy keeps getting in to trouble...
CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Former tennis star Roscoe Tanner was sentenced to two years in prison for violating probation on his grand theft conviction.
The 55-year-old Tanner was sentenced Friday, Pinellas County court records said.
He was sentenced to 10 years of probation in November 2003 in Florida for bouncing a $35,595 check he used to buy a 32-foot boat in 2000. Then he was arrested in Tennessee in October, accused of violating his probation by failing to make restitution payments.
In 2004, Tanner was sentenced to a year of probation for failing to pay more than $80,000 in child support for a daughter he fathered.
Tanner, a highly ranked player through the 1970s, won the 1977 Australian Open and was the Wimbledon runner-up in 1979. Known for his big serve, he won about $2 million in prize money and played on the U.S. Davis Cup team.
