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.
