Frustrated umpire gives pep talk to Kyrgios

Kyrgios triumphs over Herbert after umpire controversy

"I think that was a good choice".

The umpire's controversial "coaching" was savaged on social media, with fans furious about his perceived bias towards Kyrgios and claiming it was unfair on Herbert.

Cameras showed Lahyani coming out of his chair and approaching Kyrgios while the Australian was down 0-3 in the second set to Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

Former leading Australian umpire and one-time head of Asada Richard Ings weighed in. He said he liked me.

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

Deputies have canvassed the area, completed a door to door check and interviews of (residents) as well as businesses in the area. Lieutenant Scott Spencer told Fox News they have received reports claiming she could be a missing woman from as far as Canada.

"I just lost it mentally", Djokovic said about his issues in the third set. "Look. I wasn't feeling good. I think everybody knows that".

"It didn't help me at all".

Monfils was trailing 6-2, 5-4 when he stopped.

But US Open officials leapt to his defence, backing up Layhani's story, which stated he only left his chair to address fears that Kyrgios may have needed medical attention.

Imagine the now-retired National Football League referee Ed Hochuli joining a 2016 or 2017 Giants huddle in order to encourage Odell Beckham Jr.to stop with the antics and focus on hauling in Eli Manning's passes. I just saw that Mohamed went down at the chair.

John McCain's farewell: 'Do not despair of our present difficulties'
On Saturday, a procession will pass the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and arrive for a funeral at Washington National Cathedral. Trump, who had traded bitter criticism with McCain since before the election, declared his order "a mark of respect".

"Not a bad performance by any means by me", Federer said. "Those things happen, I guess".

"First of all, I'm upset against me because I should have finished the second set". You as an umpire take a decision on the chair, do you like it or don't you like it. He didn't even try to hide it either; he just kept allowing Herbert to blow serves by him without even attempting to return them. I think this was not his job. I umpired thousands of matches. The only thing he can tell him is, "pay attention because if you continue like this I'm going to give you a warning', something like this".

When chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani left his seat to urge Kyrgios to show effort, the tennis world was taken aback by the freakish scene.

On Thursday, Federer took a 6-0 career lead over world number 56 Paire although the Frenchman did have match points in Halle this summer before losing a second round encounter.

Djokovic, the sixth seed, struggled badly during his first round clash with Hungarian Marton Fucsovics, dropping a set before rallying to win in four after spending time in an ice bath during the mandatory 10-minute heat break. On-court microphones caught the chair umpire delivering a motivational speech - bordering on something you'd only hear from a coach - to the Aussie. "You don't go and speak like that". He was there for too long. It was a conversation and conversations change mindsets.
