Christopher Eubanks, a Wimbledon quarter-finalist, faced an unexpected detour on his way to the Basel Open.
Eubanks' connecting flight was canceled due to a bomb threat, leading to a turbulent start to his journey.
Forced to choose between a night in Munich or a train journey to Basel, Eubanks opted for the latter, hoping for extra preparation time.
Unfortunately, his decision came at a cost. Eubanks lost a crucial piece of luggage during the train ride, possibly stolen at a previous stop.
This incident sheds light on the less glamorous side of professional tennis, where even stars like Eubanks face unexpected challenges.
As Eubanks gears up for the Basel Open, he hopes to put this ordeal behind him, focusing on a successful campaign.
On Monday, Eubanks will face Jan-Lennard Struff, aiming to prove that his challenging journey was not in vain.
