  • Ump gets punished for the other strange US Open scandal

"I want to help you", Lahyani said to Kyrgios, the unpredictable Australian star who has been fined and suspended for lack of effort in the past.

That's the penalty dished out overnight to Swedish tennis umpire Mohamed Lahyani, who climbed down off his chair at the US Open two weeks ago and gave Nick Kyrgios the sort of talking-to we'd all love to have given him for at least five years now. The chair umpire's actions upset several tennis players, including Herbert and Roger Federer.

The next day, USTA spokesman Chris Widmaier said Lahyani had gone "beyond our protocol", but would be allowed to continue to work matches during the U.S. Open because of his "exemplary track record as an worldwide tennis official".

"I want to help you". "I don't think he's a coach; he's an umpire and he should stay on his chair for that".

ATP executive vice president of rules and competition Gayle David Bradshaw said Lahyani is a "world-class and highly-respected official", but added "his actions during the match crossed a line that compromised his own impartiality as a chair umpire". It was not just about how you're feeling, 'Oh, I am not feeling well'.

Herbert said after the match that he believed Lahyani had overstepped the mark. On a searingly hot New York City day, Kyrgios's enthusiasm levels were decidedly cool as he slumped to a set down and 0-3 in the second set.

One of seven full-time chair umpires on the ATP Tour, Lahyani will miss the China Open in Beijing and the Shanghai Masters, The New York Times reported.

"Although well-intended, his actions were regrettable and can not go without disciplinary action on our own tour".

'We know that he will learn from this experience and we look forward to welcoming him back in October'.

With all the attention on Carlos Ramos, who clashed with Serena Williams in the women's final and penalized her a game, Mohamed Lahyani was somewhat forgotten. He is expected to return to work at the Stockholm event that begins October 15.

Although Kyrgios downplayed the umpire's influence in post-match interviews, there was no doubt to anyone watching that the intervention was the moment that changed everything. "It's a very special tournament for me and it was really tough to control my emotions", sixth seed Dzumhur said.

When the trainer arrived and asked the Australian what he needed treatment for, Kyrgios replied, "I don't know".
