A court in Prague has awarded former Czech tennis player Jan Kodeš a compensation of 236,000 crowns for divorce proceedings that took nearly 20 years to conclude. The former Wimbledon and Davis Cup champion filed for divorce in 1988 but the proceedings only finalized 19 years and 7 months later. Mr Kodeš, who is 68, already received compensation of 360,000 crowns two years ago. However, he was requesting 7.5 million crowns in damages from the state.
