Re: ~~~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Thread~~~

In Rotterdam he was teasing Stepanek.... In JC"s match..Radek wanted to have the same ball back....but Mo caught it and put it in his jacket and pretended he didn't do anything

Radek wasn't amused!

And with the final, the speaker anounced him and I went: and he did

he's cracking me up!!

Re: ~~~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Thread~~~

In Madrid, during the doubles match Hrbaty/Schüttler vs. Robredo/Nadal, Mo was suddenly covering the scores in German and French. The players were so concentrated, that at first they didn't even noticed!

In Rotterdam he did so as well... Oh, and the man eats microphones!

Re: ~~~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Thread~~~

I just love his style...and his voice is sooooo....

Seriously, during the Rotterdam final, he overruled lines judges decisions several times. And once, he did it with such a tone in his voice that he even frightened Ivan...too funny!!!

He's a classy guy!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: ~~~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Thread~~~

Mohamed is GORGEOUS so I hope the Dutch Fan Club will allow an English member in! He always says "hi" to me now because he recognises me from going to so many tournaments - he's a real gentleman and a genuinely funny guy.

Great thread - thanks Lady_Carlita.

Re: ~~~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Thread~~~

There are more Mohamed aficionados!!!!

I love him! He's a funny umpire, looks so nice and relaxed and is Moroccan like me.

I can listen to him for hours in any language.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: ~~~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Thread~~~

I didn't see him in Rotterdam till thursday and had a huge smile on my face. I would have liked to talk to him in Moroccan, but I'll wait for Rosie to arrange that for me as well.

My sis and I refer to him as 15-love. I love the way he says that.

During the final him and the danish umpire took pics of each other standing on the steps of the chair. It was funny to see.

Here's the man at work.
