Tennis career[edit]

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.[1]



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.

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.
