Nikoloz Basilashvili makes it to the Sofia Open semifinals
11 February, 2017
Georgian tennis player Nikoloz Basilashvili has won another game at Sofia Open yesterday and went through to the semifinal.
24-year-old Georgian who is ranked 87th in the world defeated Martin Klizan in quarterfinal game 0:6, 6:3, 6:3 and is going to face Grigor Dimitrov (13) today.

As a reminder, earlier Basilashvili also defeated Dominic Thiem who was ranked 1st at the tournament and is world’s No.8.

“The first set was a disaster but I managed to forget about it and
concentrate on the remaining two sets. Eventually I won several very important points and that helped me to win the match.

The game against Dimitrov will be very difficult. He is in a great shape and is going to play in front of his many fans,” Basilashvili said.
