Teymuraz Besikovich Gabashvili [lower-alpha 1] (Russian : Теймураз Бесикович Габашвили; Georgian :თეიმურაზ გაბაშვილი, pronounced  [tʰɛimurɑz ɡɑbɑʃvili] ; born 23 May 1985) is a Russian professional tennis player. He reached the fourth round of the 2010 and 2015 French Open. His biggest weapons are his very powerful groundstrokes and his strong serve, the latter of which can reach speeds of up to 220 km/h (137 mph). He is nicknamed "Tsunami" because of his energy.



Gabashvili began playing tennis at the age of six in Tbilisi, Georgia. His mother Anna, who is a doctor, took him to play tennis and began coaching him until the age of ten. Gabashvili's family moved to Moscow, because of better opportunities there. Andrey Kesarev began coaching him when he was ten years old and at the age of 18 he turned pro.

Tennis career


As a junior Gabashvili posted a singles win/loss record of 38–34 (47–29 in doubles) and reached as high as no. 33 in the junior world singles rankings (and no. 40 in doubles) in January 2002.

Junior Slam results:

Australian Open: 3R (2002)
French Open: 1R (2001, 2002)
Wimbledon: 1R (2002)
US Open: 2R (2001)


Gabashvili made his ATP tour debut in 2004 in Båstad, where he lost to Olivier Patience of France.


At Wimbledon, Gabashvili faced Roger Federer in the first round and lost.

In the first round of the 2007 US Open, Gabashvili defeated World No. 7 Fernando González in five sets. In the fourth set, Gabashvili served for the match at 5–4, but hit three consecutive double faults. He lost the game and the set, but came back in the fifth and final set to win the match. [2]


2008 proved to be unimpressive for Gabashvili as he lost in the first round of his first four tournaments before breaking his right wrist, effectively ending his season.


In the first round of the 2009 US Open, he lost in straight sets to American Jesse Levine.


In the third round of the 2010 French Open, he beat Andy Roddick in straight sets. However, he was beaten in the fourth round by Austria's Jürgen Melzer in four sets.

At the 2010 US Open, Gabashvili played World No. 1 Rafael Nadal in the first round, and lost.


Gabashvili represented his country at the 2011 Summer Universiade held in Shenzhen and won a silver medal. Despite being ranked below the top 100 in the ATP rankings, Gabashvili was still by far the highest-ranked player in the singles draw, and was thus a favorite to win Gold. He advanced all the way to the singles final without dropping a set before suffering a surprising defeat at the hands of Lim Yong-Kyu, an established member of South Korea's Davis Cup team.


At the 2015 French Open, Gabashvili reapeated his 2010's result and advanced to the fourth round without losing a set, defeating in order, 10th seed Feliciano López, Juan Mónaco and Lukáš Rosol. In the fourth round, he lost in straight sets to 5th seed Kei Nishikori. [3]

At the 2015 Citi Open, Gabashvili upset two time Grand Slam champion and world No. 3 Andy Murray in the second round in three tight sets to claim only his fourth ever win against a Top 10 player, however he lost to Ričardas Berankis in the next round in two sets.

Personal life

Gabashvili speaks Russian, Georgian, Spanish and English. He has a daughter named Nicole. His younger sister Ekaterina graduated from Vanguard University of Southern California. His younger brother, Levan played professional basketball for Dinamo Tbilisi, until he started to attend college at Seward County Community College. Outside of tennis, Gabashvili enjoys spending time with his daughter, and also likes reading, playing football, and basketball. He is coached by Guillermo Cañas.

It was the season-ending event for the best singles players and doubles teams on the 2014 ATP World Tour. The Bryan Brothers won the title at the doubles tournament, while Novak Djokovic successfully defended his single title for the second time after Roger Federer withdrew from the final, the first walkover in a final in the tournament’s 45-year history.

The 2014 Roger Federer tennis season officially began on 30 December 2013 with the start of the 2014 Brisbane International. This season was a resurgent season for Federer after a poor 2013 season. Before the start of the season Federer appointed Stefan Edberg as his coach and he also changed racquets for the first time, moving on from his longtime frame of 90 square inches to a 97 square inch frame. Federer reached a total of 11 finals the most since his 2007 season. One of those finals included the Wimbledon final, his first major final since he won Wimbledon in 2012. After winning Shanghai, Federer returned to No. 2 in the world for the first time since May 2013. He also won the Davis Cup for the first time. Federer ended the year at No. 2 with 5 titles and with the most match wins since 2006.
