Georgian tennis star Nikoloz Basilashvili was forced to drop out of the Sydney Cup due to breathing difficulties and needing treatment from a doctor during his singles match against Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The 29-year-old and World’s no. 22 tennis player had to end his ATP Cup match early due to breathing difficulties on Wednesday.

A doctor and physiotherapist attended Basilashvili while sitting with his team.

Australia’s Nine.com reported:

An ATP Cup match featuring world No.4 Stefanos Tsitsipas was abruptly abandoned tonight as Nikoloz Basilashivili was “struggling to breathe” in Sydney.

“This is concerning, very concerning I would say,” Colin Fleming said in commentary for Stan Sport.

“If you feel like you can’t take any kind of deep breath at this level and this intensity, that’s an issue.”

Basilashvili was overheard telling his support team that “every shot I’m out of breath” and then told medical staff that he was “struggling to breathe.”

Stefanos Tsitsipas reacted to Basilashvili’s early drop out of the season. Tsitsipas was ahead in the first set with a score standing 4-1 when Basilashvili decided to withdraw from the game.

“I don’t really know how is his health. It’s not easy playing when you’re not 100%..”I completely understand his situation. It’s a shame there was no match today, but there will be doubles!”

There is still no update regarding Basilashvili’s health condition. Basilashvili is believed to be double vaccinated. Last year, the Premier of Victoria mandated that all players coming to Australia for the Australian Open must be fully vaccinated.

Australia’s vaccination rules caused Novak Djokovic and Czech tennis player Renata Voracova to have their visa canceled and thrown in the immigration detention facility despite already having been allowed into the country.
