Re: ~*~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society~*~

Hello Mr. Mo Socialites,

Watching Mo in China I recalled this forum and the chat I had with one of the membranes (female for member):I think it was Ileana. So I want to share a meeting I had with your idol at Roland Garros in '08.
Mr. Mo was on the grounds and since the FO is very fan friendly, I stopped him for an autograph and picture.
He was very affable, even on the syrupy side, but maybe I'm too harsh here. I asked him what is he going to umpire next and he said a doubles match on court 7 and he grimaced as he mentioned it, as if saying: 'I'm too big a character to umpire on court 7".

But if you know RG, no. 7 is pretty decent, with stands on all four sides. It was Santoro/Giquel vs Devilder/OtherFrenchie. Very entertaining, ended 7-6 7-6 and the Magician was cool as always.

Well, before the match and at the end Mr. Mo was happy to chat with me, a nobody, for more than a few minutes.
One of the exchanges:
"Mr. Mo, you're a big hit with the ladies on the interweb ..."
"Yes ? Which site?"
"Men's tennis forums ..."
Here he looked disappointed, but I could not remember to quote 'The Appreciation Society' (by the way, it sounds very Victorian)
"Please, a smile for the ladies on Men's Tennis Forums".

And he did smile indeed, again, a bit syrupy for my taste, but I guess this is his biggest appeal with that half of the gender table.

Why was he not umpiring on the N. American hard courts this summer ?

Re: ~*~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society~*~

while Big John was playing with Kubot, someone said: Go big john! Then a guy yelled:C'mon Mohamed!...people there were totally lost, i was sitting behind Mo, i laughed out loudly, he turned back and smiled. Thats so interesting. I asked him to sigh on the pic we had last year, he draws a big smile on it.

Re: ~*~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society~*~

But he participates in Gran Slams, and he's the best, so he SHOULD be in a gran slam final
those are the ITF umpires:
Louise Engzell (SWE), Jake Garner (USA), Alison Lang (Great Britain), Pascal Maria (France), Enric Molina (Spain) and Carlos Ramos (Portugal)
i got it from the official ITF website.. but I don't think that only those referees are in GS finals.. (?)

Re: ~*~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society~*~

Mo told me once that he gets an invitation to be umpire at RG or Wimbledon. I don't know what the rules are with ITF.... But as long as one of the ITF umps are there I m guessing they will sit in the chair.

Re: ~*~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society~*~

I read in an interview, that he would like to be in a GS final, it will be a good award for him, but he doesn't make it an obsession..That's what he said, So there are possibilties to see him in a final!
anyways, we're supporting him and it will be good to see him in a GS final!

Re: ~*~Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society~*~

Well guys, since nobody is posting here
I send a video, it was in the Semi finals of Casablanca, you can see him at 6'30 and you can hear the crowd screaming "Allez Lahyani!!" and even singing

Oh and an other video, about him in Madrid, with Roger (a little rude):
