The violent attack that struck former tennis player Jose Luis Clercz, 60, last Friday at his home in Olivos, a block and a half of the presidential fifth, left the whole family shocked. "It's a huge psychological shock from which I can not recover," admitted Bata on Monday morning.
"We are all very badthat attack your privacy in the way they did it is very difficult, "the current TV commentator said after criminals threatened to take one of their daughters.
In addition, he was surprised that the event took place in a place with great certainty. "I never thought anyone could pass, especially in this area, I spent many years in La Horequet. One block and a half, where Maurizio (Makri) is really impressive"he said.
He consulted if he thinks there is a plan to materialize the theft, he said: "He touched me and he touched me."
Clerk thanked the representatives of the province who communicated with him after the robbery. "I am grateful that I also received Christian Ritondo (Buenos Aires Police Chief) Fabian Perroni from the Vicente Lopez municipality and, above all, the prosecutor Martin Gomez, who works very hard."
"They work, I hope that they will be caught and will change everything for the citizens, just as all the G20 went safely to their homes"he said.
The former tennis player confirmed he was beaten by the attackers. "They hit me on the head with a gun shot. They tugged at me and even, but most of all I was worried about the two little ones who were with me, "he said.
"If you do not give everything, we will take one of the girls"With this threat, three armed robbers stole money, jewelry, tablets and mobile phones from the former tennis player's house, at Monasterio in 1800.
It started about 20 on Friday when Kerz was in the garden with his daughters and decided to go to the front of the property. There he encountered three heavily armed thieves who entered without compulsion on any door or window.
One of the criminals directed the gun to him, and then gave him a rifle on his head to control it. Then, they took the daughters of the tennis player to the back of the house. Meanwhile, Clerc was tied to a tie table and began to demand money. At that moment, the intruders threatened the former player to kidnap the girls.
The former player told the thieves where there was money, jewelry and electronics to get them out. Outside, they were waiting for a car in which there was a fourth accomplice. After the attackers fled, Kerz called the police.

After the police began searching the house, she found that the doors of Clerk's house had neither doors nor windows broken, so it is estimated that the delinquents had keys to the property. In this regard, researchers question the working environment of the former tennis player.
The theft occurred at a time when there was a strong security operation in the Olivis area, as well as in several points in the north of Conturbano, due to the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires and the meetings held in the Fifth Presidential.
Although Clerk's house was not included among traffic-restricted streets, it's only one-and-a-half blocks from Malawer, one of the sides of the dwelling.
The tennis player, who stood outside the decade of the 1980s – became No. 4 in the world – was already attacked in 1997 when he lived in a house in the La Hareket district of the San Isidro party.
Then, he suffered another robbery in 2007 when he entered his home in San Fernando.
