Nadal's parents noticed Tuesday morning that the watch, which was on loan from luxury watchmaker Richard Mille, had disappeared from their room in a hotel in Paris's upscale eighth arrondissement and reported it stolen, a police source said. French newspaper reports said the company had lent Nadal the watch for the French Open, which the Spanish tennis sensation won for a record seventh time Monday, beating Serbia's Novak Djokovic.
The clash of titans was the most unpredicatable between the second seeded Spanish Nadal and Number one Djokovic at Paris. The match was interrupted by rains but later resumed. The interruption had its toll on the champion who lost his cool against the Spaniard. The match ended on Djokovic's double-fault, a fittingly awkward conclusion to a final that had plenty of stops and starts.(With inputs from internet-AarKay)
