It turned out to be a double whammy of a Sunday for Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Not only did the Frenchman lose to Roger Federer in the ATP World Tour Finals, but also during the match his home was robbed! (By a Federer fan?)
According to Swiss press, Tsonga’s Swiss home in Gingins, just north of the French border, was burglarized Sunday afternoon.
An alert neighbor noticed a light was on in his villa and called the police. Tsonga said on Monday that he was hopeful he would recognize his home when he returned.
Tsonga lives alone in a house he spends very little time at. That and his fame makes it’s easy to know when he’s not home and very susceptible to theft.
For finishing runner-up in London Tsonga won $740,000 which should help to ease his pain.
