Federer eases into US Open third round

In a weird scene that caused an instant stir on social media, Lahyani got off his chair with Kyrgios down a set and trailing 3-0 in the second to give the Australian a pep talk.

"I want to help you", said Lahyani, as he exhorted Kyrgios to give more effort and live up to the fans' expectations.

According to Earley, the official said he wanted to check whether Kyrgios needed medical attention and to warn the player that Lahyani "would need to take action" if the "seeming lack of interest in the match continued".

Kyrgios contended that Lehyani wasn't giving him a pep talk and that the same thing happened to him in Shanghai.

Kyrgios said: "For sure, to win three sets off Federer you have to play some pretty consistent tennis".

As he posted a farewell message to NY on Instagram, Murray added: "I'm off to get a health check as apparently I've started imagining things". Some, including Kyrgios' opponent, have claimed that the umpire overstepped the mark. "But his behaviour and motivation on court changed after this moment and then he dominated the match", Herbert said. "I don't think he's a coach, he's an umpire". I don't have a coach and haven't had one for years, of course he wasn't coaching me.

Interestingly enough, Kyrgios' fortunes nearly immediately turned around after the encounter, and he stormed home to win the match in 4 sets, 4-6 7-6 6-3 6-0.

Federer cruised through the second set without losing his serve and then snagged a 4-1 lead with two service breaks in the third set.

Paire smashed his racquet, argued with the umpire and produced 11 double faults as Federer came through 7-5 6-4 6-4. You know, when I was up 40-0 at the end, I put my ear to the crowd, just want to hear them boo again.


Kyrgios told the umpire he wasn't feeling well and Lahyani responded, "Let me help you" in what many spectators including ESPN analyst Darren Cahill called an unfair pep talk. I'm not sure if that was encouragement.

"He was down there for too long".

The statement said: "Lahyani was advised to adhere to proper protocols in all matches that he officiates moving forward". "I had no real choice".

"I would say that is against the rules", Wilander said.

During the second round match between Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nick Kyrgios. "We're not supposed to have a coach on court", he said, suggesting that he could have won if the umpire didn't intervene.

"She played the game I should have played", said two-time runner-up Wozniacki who has endured a Grand Slam letdown since winning in Australia.

The Swiss was among those who thought Lahyani had crossed the line. I just saw that Mohamed went down at the chair. I haven't had a coach for, like, years. But the one, THE ONE and only person you should least expect any help from is the umpire.

After three games of the second set, Kyrgios looked all set to implode.

"It's a conversation, and a conversation can change your mindset".
