With Novak Djokovic otherwise occupied in preparing for the US Open, thieves took advantage of his absence to recently ransack the Marbella villa of the world No. 1.
Serb media reported the crime on the Spanish Costa, which serves as a retreat for the player who has been based with his family in Monte Carlo.
Reports said the crime took place in the peak mid-August holiday season, with the tennis multi-millionaire in the later stages of finalising his trip to New York.
Items missing include “very valuable things,” though no dollar value or list of stolen property has been released. Police say a gang of thieves entered 22 villas on a single night in the area, popular with Spanish footballers
The Djokovic family have been renting the massive 3,500-sqm villa, which features a swimming pool, gym, a tennis court, nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a garden with sea views for around a reported US$ 10,000 per month..
The luxury property was purchased by the player in 2020 for US$ 11 million.
