Vaccinated tennis star Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia dropped out of the Sydney Cup due to shortness of breath.
Basilashvili was forced to leave the Sydney Cup due to shortness of breath and the need for medical treatment during a singles match against Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The 29-year-old was forced to prematurely end his ATP Cup match due to shortness of breath on Wednesday. The doctor and physiotherapist visited Basilashvili while he was sitting with his team.
Australian website Nine reports: The ATP Cup match featuring Stefanos Tsitsipas was abruptly interrupted tonight due to Nikoloz Basilashvili “having trouble breathing” in Sydney.
“It’s worrisome, I would say very worried,” Colin Fleming said in a comment for Stan Sport. “If you feel like you can’t take deep breaths at this level and with this intensity, that’s a problem.”
There is still no information about Basilashvili’s state of health. He is believed to have received a double vaccination.
Last year, the Victorian Premier demanded that all players traveling to Australia for the Australian Open be fully vaccinated.
According to the Australian vaccination rules, the visas of Novak Djokovic and Czech tennis player Renata Vorakova were canceled. They were thrown into an immigration detention center, despite the fact that they had already been allowed to enter the country.
