U.S. Open umpire handed 2-tourney ban after on-court run-in with Kyrgios
The chair umpire who climbed out of his seat to talk with Nick Kyrgios during a U.S. Open match has been suspended for two tournaments by the ATP.
A statement issued by the men's tour on Tuesday says that Mohamed Lahyani will not officiate at his next two scheduled events, the China Open in Beijing, which starts on Oct. 1, and the Shanghai Masters the following week.
Lahyani will be able to resume umpiring at the Stockholm Open on Oct. 15.
