Diego Schwartzman came into the grass season with some hopes of improving his grass-court records as he enters the Wimbledon 2022. Schwartzman’s best Wimbledon appearance is the third round he made in 2019 and 2021. Schwartzman’s plans were ruined as he suffered two upsets in his first matches at the two tournaments he played. He lost to Sam Querry in Queen’s Club Championship and was Ousted from Eastbourne by Brit Jack Draper.

Schwartzman will have to enter the Wimbledon without a win this grass-court season and would hope for easier opening draws so that he could try and find his groove on grass. But, the lack of match wins is the least of the problems for the Argentine currently. He was robbed of many valuables, including his passport from the Hydro Hotel in Eastbourne. Another player Pedro Martinez too had an expensive watch of sentimental value stolen from his hotel room.

Schwartzman took to his Twitter account to reveal the details of his troubles. He wrote: “Hello everyone!!! I tell you that unfortunately this Sunday from the hotel @HydroHotel in Eastbourne many belongings was stolen. Including the passport. Credit cards and various other things. Thanks to everyone who cared and asked if I needed anything.”

He also revealed how the hotel dropped its responsibility for this incident. He wrote: “It was not easy to compete this week trying to solve all this before the match since the hotel does not seem to want to take charge…”

There seems to be a problem with the hotel’s security because Martinez too had his room burgled and the lack of security cameras in the corridors makes it incredibly difficult for any chances of recovery of the items. Both the players lost their respective matches and part of the reason is their being troubled by this incident. Schwartzman would be hoping that things would work out as he would head out to London for the Championships.
