Dutch thieves steal diamond racket



AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, June 19 (UPI) -- A diamond-studded replica tennis racket disappeared from a jewelry exhibition in The Netherlands during the weekend.

Expatica said the racket was being moved from the Amstel Hotel to a waiting car when thieves moved in.

The racket, owned by Coster Diamonds, is a replica of the Belgium's Diamond Award tennis racket, which goes to whoever wins the Diamond Games in Antwerp three times in five years.

No value was given for the replica but the original is worth $1.26 million.

The replica was made for a diamond museum opening in Amsterdam.

Kindof stupid though... it's not like they're going to be able to resell it very easily, and I suppose they're not going to use it to play with...

they can take out the diamonds and melt the gold, unless the diamonds had laser etched serial #s on them

I wonder if the real one has "blood diamonds" from a place like Liberia or Sierra Leone in it. And I'm sure that tournament owner Octagon, prime sponsor Proximus, and the WTA could't give a FF if it does. Maybe the players do... nah, its just another kind of bling.

The theif has to be someone with no chance of winning ... ever.

I think the police should bring Schiavone and Hantuchova in for questioning. :tape:

Forget about Hantuchova. The racquet weighs more than she does. ;)
