WIMBLEDON, ENGLAND WIMBLEDON, England (AP) _ Three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker is threatening to go to court against the Church of Scientology.

Becker's manager and Munich attorney, Axel Meyer-Woelden, has given Scientology a July 1 deadline to say it will stop using Becker's name and photo on the Internet.

Scientology, which is not recognized as a church in Germany, was recently placed on a list of groups under observation by state offices because it is viewed as a threat to democracy. It has used Becker's name without permission, the German sports news agency SID reported.
