TENNIS TROUBLES ‘This is very concerning’ – Tennis ace Basilashvili struggles to breathe and treated by doctor before match abandoned

TENNIS star Nikoloz Basilashvili was forced to retire after struggling to breathe and needing treatment from a doctor. The Georgian player was representing his country in the ATP Cup in Sydney. But in his singles match on Wednesday against Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas, play was suddenly halted when Basilashvili was serving at 4-1 down in the first set. He was overheard saying: "Every shot I’m out of breath."
