His professional accomplishment has gained widespread acclaim in his own country, but the same cannot be said for his personal life.
Nikoloz Basilashvili has continued to make Georgia proud by achieving numerous firsts for his country on the tennis court. Ranked currently 23, Basilashvili is a player who is capable of making life difficult for anyone on a given day. The 29-year-old has five singles titles to his name and famously reached his first ATP Masters 1000 final at Indian Wells last year. Stefanos Tsitsipas was among the players he defeated to reach the title match. However, he lost the final to Cameron Norrie. His first title success came in July 2018, when he made it into the main draw of the German Open in Hamburg as a qualifier and went on to win the tournament.
On the back of his first crown, Basilashvili climbed to World No. 35 in the world rankings, his highest singles position and the highest by a Georgian player in the post-Soviet era. The 29-year-old achieved a career-high ATP singles ranking of World No. 16 in May 2019.
