Federer, Djokovic through as storm rages over umpire's Kyrgios pep-talk

Kyrgios triumphs over Herbert after umpire controversy

Nick Kyrgios' intensely freaky mid-match pep talk from umpire Mohamed Lahyani has copped an absolute pasting from media pundits and tennis personalities alike, after the official left his chair during Kyrgios' second round matchup against Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

Roger Federer of Switzerland celebrates winning his men's singles second round match against Benoit Paire of France on Day Four of the 2018 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on 30 August, 2018 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City. A video of the incident revealed Lahyani told Kyrgios 'I want to help you, I know this is not you'.

Federer was crisp in a 7-5, 6-4, 6-4 win over Benoit Paire and made it 18 of 18 lifetime in the second round of the U.S. Open.

Rising temperatures have also been severely discussed due to players struggling with the heat, but Kyrgios' latest actions is the current saga unfolding in America.

On Thursday at the U.S. Open, Kyrgios had just fallen behind by a set and 3-0 in his second-round match.

"I haven't seen it, as I say".

The actor, he said, was "shaken" by the allegations, which went against "everything he is and respects". Depardieu has appeared in films like " Green Card ", " The Man in the Iron Mask " and " Life of Pi ".


Even before the match had finished tournament officials were launching an investigation into the conduct of the Swedish umpire, looking at whether he had breached the rules governing impartial conduct.

The only highlights for Paire were the bleached blond tips of his hair Federer even forced his overmatched foe to his stomach before his game went belly up. I think it was not a bad performance by any means by me. "I spend the least possible time here on site because that takes energy away", Zverev said.

She lost in the fourth round at Roland Garros and exited in the second round at Wimbledon.

Wozniacki lost, 6-4, 6-2, to 36th-ranked Lesia Tsurenko.

He suggested that Kyrgios receive medical attention. I know what I was doing out there wasn't good. On-court microphones caught the chair umpire delivering a motivational speech - bordering on something you'd only hear from a coach - to the Aussie.

'When you going to announce Mohamed Lahyani as your new coach?' Murray wrote.

Since featuring at the World Cup, midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, 22, has only played 22 competitive minutes for Chelsea . Henderson and Alexander-Arnold were part of the England set-up that reached the semi-finals in Russian Federation .


Normally, a chair umpire leans over from his or her post to speak to a seated player during a changeover.

Herbert was not impressed by the intervention from Lahyani, as he offered up these comments following a match that appeared to turn after the umpire spoke to Kyrgios. I just can tell you from that point Nick was playing much better.

"I'm here to do something I've never done in 40 years in tennis, I'm going to defend this umpire", McEnroe said on ESPN.

"He was down there for too long. Conversations can change your mindset".

"That's why it won't happen again". When Federer finally slipped a victor by the Frenchman, Paire stared blankly ahead with an "I can't believe this" look of despair.

In other notable matches, Novak Djokovic defeated Tennys Sandgren, 6-1, 6-3, 6-7 (2-7), 6-2.
