ATP World No. 27 Faces 3 Years In Jail

After being charged with “violence against a family member committed in the presence of a minor”, Nikoloz Basilashvili could face up to three years in prison in his home country of Georgia.

On Friday, Basilashvili was arrested after his wife, Neka Dorokashvili, reported that she was physically assaulted by her ex-husband Nikoloz. According to the allegations, their five-year-old son Lukas was in their presence.

Nikoloz denies this allegation and was released from jail after posting bail for 100,000 Georgian Lari ($31,397). We are yet to hear when his hearing will be, but Basilashvili could face up to three year in jail.
