Grigor Dimitrov victim of theft: here is the loot

A bad mishap, a bad moment, that cost him a very expensive watch worth a total of 70,000 dollars. Grigor Dimitrov was the victim of an incredible theft in the city of Barcelona, which he recently caught up to participate in the ATP 500 tournament from April 17 to 23.

In one of the days preceding his debut on the court, scheduled for Wednesday 19 April against the Colombian Emilio Gomez on the Rafa Nadal track, the Bulgarian tennis player was robbed of his precious Rolex. The dynamics of the coup carried out by unknown persons was truly incredible and well planned, as reported by the newspaper Vanguardia.

The athlete was traveling by car when a motorbike approached after following him. Near a traffic light, the thieves cleverly decided to act: the criminals closed the mirror of the tennis player's car, who instinctively put it back in his place.

At that instant the player saw his watch slip off. The people on board the vehicle were very fast and skilful, so much so that they immediately fled as soon as the traffic light turned green, soon losing track of themselves.

Dimitrov naturally filed a complaint and the investigation by the police began. A bad event that happened to the former number 3 in the world, who is ready to take the field again and partially forget this mishap.

Not only the robbery: the start of the 2023 season for Dimitrov

The Haskovo native stopped in the third round at the Australian Open in the first tournament of the year, defeated by the Serbian Novak Djokovic.

The 31-year-old was able, on hard courts, to reach the semifinals in Rotterdam (stop against champion Daniil Medvedev) and the quarterfinals in Marseille. In the American tour, only one victory for Dimitrov conquered after a great battle against the German Struff.

On clay the Bulgarian got off to a good start overtaking the very young American Ben Shelton. In Monte-Carlo he was then eliminated by the Czech Jiri Lehecka. The opportunity to make up for it and obtain a more important result will present itself in Barcelona.
