Hello fellow Mohamed fans - glad to see I'm not alone on Earth...
Don't usually pay much attention to chair umpires, but noticed him at the Marseille tourney this year, because 1) he looks like Patrick Swayze - yes, he does - and 2) he adds much fun to attending a tennis match.
He keeps an eye on everything, can't help making signs to ball kids and line judges... But the best thing is he always sounds like he's giving a pronunciation lesson (my personal fav line is any score finishing with "fifteen"), and how to explain this, manages to add suspense with his suave voice in appropriate moments
Honestly having much trouble concentrating on the match when he's umpiring, lol.
Can I too, be part of this "International Lahyani Fanclub", please? I'd be honored.
