You ever had a rough dinner at your parents house? Good old Canas had it worse off this night.
Two armed robbers – who reportedly did not recognize this professional athlete (like they watch the news??) – threatened the player and took one racket he was carrying, along with his identity documents, credit cards, some cash and a chain he wore.
They fled in Canas’ convertible.
Over the weekend, the tennis player had been part of the Argentine team that beat Russia in the semi-finals of the Davis Cup in Buenos Aires.
When he was attacked, Canas was leaving his parents’ home after dinner.
Now remember this was in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It’s a good chance that his “convertible” was probably one of those old Ford Falcons you see lining the streets everywhere.
