Umpire appears to give Kyrgios pep talk at the U.S. Open

Umpire appears to give Kyrgios pep talk at the U.S. Open

It comes after long-time tennis pro, Roger Federer warned Kyrgios to slow down following his latest foul-mouthed rant during his US Open match against Moldovan player Radu Albot.

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.

Lahyani stood over the seated Kyrgios, berating the 23-year-old.

'I want to help you, ' Lahyani repeated. "This isn't you. I know that". You never know what would have happened if Mohamed didn't go down off the chair and started talking to him.

Kyrgios saw the trainer two games later but sent him away with a pat on the back after receiving some salt to help with the effects of the heat and soon turned things around, recovering the break in the second set and growing more dominant as the match went on in a 4-6 7-6 (8/6) 6-3 6-0 victory.

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. "He [Herbert] let me back into the second set really". I want to help you, ' Lahyani said. "I don't think he's a coach, he's an umpire". "I think everybody knows that". Lahyani got down from his post in between sets and attempted to give Kyrgios a pep talk.

Federer was also playing a Frenchman, Benoit Paire, in his second-round match on Thursday (NZT Friday). 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.

Down one set and 2-5 in the second, Kyrgios appeared to be in the midst of a mild meltdown on a scorching afternoon.

The controversy come after Kyrgios spent much of his first round match against Moldovan Radu Albot complaining of fatigue as temperatures soared to 35C. I had no real choice'. "He probably should have served the second set out".

The Frenchman said: "On court I tried to focus on myself".
