Margaret Court's home allegedly robbed on Australia Day



Medals, an old tennis racquet and a passport are among the items allegedly stolen from the home of retired tennis champion Margaret Court on Australia Day.

Western Australia Police have charged two men, after they allegedly stole Court's OABE, AO and OC miniature medals from her City Beach home in Perth, about 8pm on Thursday.

The senior pastor and her husband, Barrymore Court, were on holiday at the time but watched the ordeal unfold through the home security system.

"It's never comfortable, it's not nice," Court said.

"I think I saw them right away on the little screen at the front door, police got right onto it, they were awesome."

Court said most of the items had been returned, except for her husband's passport.

"They were all returned, the police did and wonderful, wonderful job," she said.

"All is good, all is fine, I pray for the young guys, I pray they come to know Christ."

A 33-year-old man and a 34-year-old man, both from Edgewater, have been charged over the incident. 

They are expected to face court next month.
