Schwartzman and Martínez, victims of robbery in Eastbourne – Tennis – Sports

The Argentine Diego Schwartzman, after winning the ATP 500 in Rio de Janeiro, got into the top 20 of the world list of the Association of Professional Tennis Players.

“Fifteen minutes later, Diego appeared and the same thing had happened to him,” said Martínez, who beat Alejandro Davidovich due to the Malaga player’s retirement and assured that it was difficult to compete in those circumstances.

“My watch was stolen, and Schwartzman had some valuables stolen. I had a bad night, that’s the truth. I barely slept. It was hard to play, but I tried to concentrate on playing.”

Schwartzman still hasn’t won on grass this 2022 after falling to the British Jack Draper, a guest of the tournament, 7-5 and 7-6(3), in the second round at Eastbourne, in England. The South American tennis player started as the fourth favorite.

He fell in his first match in Queens against American Sam Querrey. And in Eastbourne he did not do better, beaten by a tennis player outside the top one hundred of the ATP ranking and who took two hours to resolve the commitment with the Argentine, with whom he had never played before.
