Nikoloz Basilashvili (Georgian: ? , romanized: nik'oloz basilashvili, pronounced [nik'?l?z b?silvili];[2] born 23 February 1992) is a Georgian professional tennis player. He reached a career-high ATP singles ranking of world No. 16 on 27 May 2019.

In July 2018, he made it into the main draw of the German Open in Hamburg as a qualifier and went on to win the tournament, defeating Leonardo Mayer in the final, thereby becoming the first Georgian player since Alex Metreveli to win an ATP tournament. In October 2018, Basilashvili won his second ATP title at the China Open by defeating world No. 4 Juan Martín del Potro in the final. In 2019, Basilashvili completed his first title defense by winning the German Open for a second successive year.

Personal life

Basilashvili was born 23 February 1992 in Tbilisi, Georgia. His father, Nodar, is a dancer of the Sukhishvili Georgian National Ballet, his mother, Natalia, worked as a physician.[3] He has a brother, Tengiz. Apart from his native language he also speaks Russian and English.[4]

Basilashvili started playing tennis at age 5. From 2007 to 2011 he was coached in Sacramento, CA, United States. When he was 15 his family moved to Russia. In 2011, Basilashvili announced that he may play for Russia, but decided to keep playing under the Georgian flag.[5]

He has a son, Lukas who was born in 2015. On May 24, 2020 Basilashvili was arrested on domestic violence charge. He allegedly had assaulted his former wife Neka Dorokashvili in front of a minor. Tbilisi city court decided to bail him out paying 100,000 GEL. The preliminary court date is set for 16 July.[6] Basilashvili denies the charges and intends to sue his former wife for defamation.[7]

Career

Junior career

Nikoloz did not play at any Grand Slams during his junior career. He reached a career high combined (singles and doubles) of world No. 59 on 5 January 2009. He ended his junior career with a 35-22 record on singles and 14-17 on doubles.[8]

Basilashvili played in his first ITF Junior Circuit tournament in late 2006 at the G2 Jerry Simmons Tournament. He lost in the first qualifying round.[9] In 2007, he managed to break through the qualifying of two G4 tournaments in Israel and a G3 in Romania. Nikoloz lost in the Round of 16 in all of them. Later that year, he reached his first semifinal at any junior tournament doing that in doubles for the first time at the US Junior Hard Court Championships, partnering Patrick Daciek. In singles, he reached that round at the G4 USTA Illinois losing to Filip Krajinovic, in September.[10][11]

In 2008, Nikoloz won his only junior title, the G4 Tennis Express tournament, defeating Raymond Sarmiento in three sets. The Georgian played mostly at G1 and GA tournaments that year, breaking through the qualifiers of the Eddie Herr Tennis Championship and the Orange Bowl. He reached the round of 16 in the former and the quarterfinals in the latter. The Orange Bowl was his last junior tournament.[12]

Professional career

2015: Grand Slam debut

In 2015, he qualified for his first Grand Slam tournament - Roland Garros, losing in the first round to Thanasi Kokkinakis. He also managed to qualify for Wimbledon later that year, where he beat Facundo Bagnis and 15th seed Feliciano López, advancing to the third round of a major for the first time in his career. Additionally, he managed to qualify for the US Open, where he lost to Feliciano López in the first round in straight sets.

2016: First ATP final

In 2016, he qualified for his first Australian Open, losing the first round in straight sets to Roger Federer. Later that same year, in July, Basilashvili reached his first ATP tournament final - the Austrian Open Kitzbühel, where he lost to Paolo Lorenzi in two sets. He recorded his first win over a Top 10 player in October when he defeated world number 10 Tomá? Berdych at the Vienna Open.

In February 2017, Basilashvili participated at the Sofia event, grabbing victories over Adrian Mannarino, 1st seed Dominic Thiem and 8th seed Martin Kli?an, before losing to 3rd seed and eventual champion Grigor Dimitrov in the semifinals. Basilashvili continued his good form at the Memphis Open, where he defeated 1st seed Ivo Karlovi? and went on to subsequently reach the final, losing to Ryan Harrison in straight sets. In June 2017, Basilashvili achieved a then career-high singles ranking of World No. 51. He reached three semifinals and one final throughout the year. At the 2017 French Open, after defeating Gilles Simon and Viktor Troicki, Basilashvili lost to eventual champion Rafael Nadal in the third round, winning just one game in three sets. Afterwards, the defeat was described as "embarrassing".[13]

2018: First and second ATP titles, Top 50 debut, Historical career-high ranking by a Georgian player

In July 2018, he made it into the main draw of the German Open in Hamburg as a qualifier and went on to win the tournament, defeating Leonardo Mayer 6-4, 0-6, 7-5 in the final and becoming the first Georgian player since Alex Metreveli to win an ATP tournament. After winning his first title, Basilashvili moved to World No. 35 in the world standings, his highest ever singles ranking and also the highest ever by a player from Georgia in the post-Soviet era. In October 2018, he won his second ATP title by upsetting top seed Juan Martín del Potro in the final of the China Open. In December in Doha, he lost to Novak Djokovic in three sets after beating Albert Ramos Viñolas and Andrey Rublev.

2019: Top 20 debut, Third ATP title

In 2019, he lost in four sets to the later semifinalist Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Australian Open after beating two qualifiers in four and five sets. At the ATP 500 tournament in Rotterdam in February, as the 9th seed, he beat Hyeon Chung before losing to Márton Fucsovics. His performance earned him his career-high ranking of World No. 19. He then played the 2019 Dubai Tennis Championships where he beat Karen Khachanov and Roberto Bautista Agut before falling to Borna Coric of Croatia. At 2019 Indian Wells Masters he suffered an upset to Prajnesh Gunneswaran of India.

In July, Basilashvili successfully defended his Hamburg title, saving two match points against Alexander Zverev in the semifinal and beating Andrey Rublev in the final.
