Two top tennis players were robbed at the Eastbourne tournament. Fifteen world players Diego Schwartzman and 49th-ranked men Pedro Martinez had watches, luggage and cash taken from hotel rooms. And this at a time when the two athletes were out of the box. Information about the crime was also confirmed by the police.
“We can confirm that we have received reports of two separate break-ins at the Hydro Hotel on Mount Road in Eastbourne,“, said the police representatives according to the letter The sun.
The theft directly affected Schwartzman and Martinez, who stole their watches, luggage, cash and other personal effects. Martinez later admitted he couldn’t concentrate on his game after the incident.
“It was hard. They stole my watch right from my room, just like Diego Schwartzman. I had a bad evening and it was difficult to prepare for the match. But I tried to just focus on the game,“, said the 49th tennis player in the world, who advanced thanks to the shrimp of the opponent. The Spaniard also described how he came to fly.
“When I entered the room, I saw that there was no watch. I searched the whole room and couldn’t find them, so I headed to reception. About 15 minutes later Diego arrived and said the same,“he admitted.
It was Schwartzman who had a significant event in his career associated with his watch. “I bought them when I arrived in the third round of Roland Garros. It was sentimental. But what can I do?“He has come to terms with the situation. The theft is currently under investigation, but the perpetrators have not yet been apprehended.
The players themselves are already packing their bags in Eastbourne. They both fell in the round of 16.
