Basilashvili refused to in the details but he stated that he was innocent and that he would never do anything harmful to anyone -- especially not in front of his son. "The couple doesn't live together since 2018, they officially divorced in August of 2019.

The initiator of divorce was Nikoloz. During the 2019 US Open, Dorokashvili managed to get into the locker room with a fake ID, where she had a dispute with Nika," Chkadua said. Nikoloz Basilashvili is the top-ranked Georgian tennis player.

"After this, the US Open officials had asked Dorokashvili to leave the territory and she left USA with Basilashvili's expenses. As of late, she has a habit of starting disputes and pressuring Basilashvili before his matches."
