Georgia’s Basilashvili Closing In on Wimbledon Debut

Nikoloz Basilashvili, a Georgian tennis player, has reached the third qualifying round for the prestigious Wimbledon championships following a straight sets victory over Uzbekistan’s Farrukh Dustov on June 24. Basilashvili will reach Wimbledon proper for the first time in his career if he wins today’s third and final qualifying tie against Hungary’s Marton Fucsovics. The 23-year-old Georgian made his grandslam debut earlier this year at the French Open where he was knocked out in the first round by Australia’s Thanasi Kokkinakis.
