Who leaves a $373,000 watch unattended in a hotel room?!?
Rafael Nadal, that's who!
After winning the French Open on Monday the Spanish tennis champ's ritzy timepiece loaned to him by luxury watchmaker Richard Mille mysteriously disappeared from his posh Parisian hotel!
However, this story has a happy ending because on Tuesday police tracked down the thief, a barman at the hotel, who confessed to letting himself into Rafa's room with his own magnetic key card.
Shady! Stupid, but shady!
Upon hearing the news, Nadal praised the police, adding:
"I have nothing to hold against the hotel. They have always treated me well when I have stayed there over the past eight years and I will be come back next year."
Word of advice: store your fancy baubles in the safe. That's what it's there for!

What would a French Open be without a visit from Jay-Z??
Hey, that kinda rhymed! LOLz!
Jay-Z made a stop at the famous tennis tournament to lend his support and his cheers.
We're not positive he actually cheered, but hey, who wouldn't at a tournament like that??

Congrats, Rafael Nadal!
He has won a record SEVEN French Open titles!
Unfortunately for Novak Djokovic, the world's No. 1 seated player, he would not become the first man since 1969 to hold all four grand slams.
Rain was a HUGE factor in both the win and loss for the two players, but it sounds like Nadal handled it the best!
The downpour could not stop the tennis star Spaniard, as he defeated his enemy with a 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5 victory!
Way to go, Rafael! Great job!

Maybe this is her year!
Tennis! Tennis! Tennis!
