oh Lahyani, he's great!
Oh good, I'm not alone in my worship of Mohamed! I love the way he presides over matches with absolute unruffled calm, always with a twinkle in his eye and laser-like precision in his calls.
Dubai, 24 February 2009, first round v Gasquet
To boldly go off topic here, I'm guessing Lahyani's the umpire Marat refers to in that recent Independent article (Hothead Who Cooled Down), and the match in question would have been this one in Dubai: "I argued with an umpire recently and apologised to him afterwards. He said: 'I understand, I understand.' It was just in the heat of the moment during the match. Afterwards everything was cool." And he shook Lahyani's hand at the end of the first set.
