The hotel rooms of the Argentine Diego Schwartzman (this Wednesday he lost against the British Draper by 7-5 and 7-6 (3)) and the Spanish Peter Martinez were looted this week at the Eastbourne tournamentwith some personal valuables stolen.
Martínez, number 49 in the world, said, in statements to The Guardian, that when he arrived in his room on Monday he saw that his watch was missing, that he went around the room looking for it and that he finally went down to reception to report the theft. “Fifteen minutes later Diego appeared, that the same thing had happened to him,” said Martínez, who beat Alejandro Davidovich due to the Malaga player’s retirement and who assured that it was difficult to compete in those circumstances.
“My watch and Schwartzman’s valuables were stolen. I had a bad night, that’s the truth. I hardly slept. It was difficult to play, but I tried to concentrate on playing”.
Martínez, who this Wednesday could not finish his match against the British Penniston due to lack of light, assured that the watch that was stolen from him was bought a year ago, when he reached the third round of Roland Garros for the first time. “It had sentimental value. I don’t think they will find it because there were no cameras in the corridors.”
