Federer braced for Kyrgios test on sixth day of U.S. Open

Champions

"He also informed Kyrgios that if his seeming lack of interest in the match continued, that as the chair umpire, he would need to take action", the organization said in a statement.

As Kyrgios sat down Lahyani got down from his chair and, amidst an animated dressing-down that lasted nearly a minute, the Swedish official was heard to say 'I want to help you, I know this is not you'. I'm not sure if that was encouragement. "I want to help you", Lahyani said.

"I think he finds it hard to not do any of those tricks", the Swiss said. "I know this is not you". I really like him as a human.(but) he did something he shouldn't have.

"I want to help you, I want to help you", Lahyani was overheard telling Kyrgios.

The United States Tennis Association released a statement attempting to explain why Swedish official Mohamed Lahyani chose to leave his chair and speak with Kyrgios during the Australian's second-round comeback win over Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

He said: "I heard a little bit about it, but I haven't seen it to be honest". You just have to accept it.

Djokovic, the sixth seed, struggled badly during his first round clash with Hungarian Marton Fucsovics, dropping a set before rallying to win in four after spending time in an ice bath during the mandatory 10-minute heat break.

Roxanne Pallett has left 'Celebrity Big Brother'
She re-enacted what she believed happened and then said: "This is why women don't say anything because it gets turned around". It was announced today that Roxanne had quit Celebrity Big Brother in the wake of her 'altercation' with Ryan Thomas .

The occasionally temperamental Kyrgios appeared to stop trying during the first set, failing to even move while Herbert served.

For a 23-year-old who has been cast as one of the most unpredictable athletes in the world, there's one thing you can count on: Kyrgios brings the drama. "But I understand what he was trying to do", he said.

Federer cruised through the second set without losing his serve and then snagged a 4-1 lead with two service breaks in the third set.

'I haven't seen it, as I say.

After Federer beat Frenchman Benoit Paire 7-5 6-4 6-4 he was asked about the umpire's action in the Kyrgios match.

Former players, pundits and fans couldn't believe what they were witnessing and called out Lahyani's conduct, suggesting the official's behaviour amounted to "on-court coaching" and that he should have been pulled from the match and the tournament altogether.

Nick Kyrgios was down in the dumps until the second-set pep talk.

Raiders agree to deal Mack to Bears
With Gruden open to dealing Mack, there was no way Davis was going to veto him after giving him $100 million to coach the team. In 2016, he earned NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Sharapova took her night time record at the tournament to 21 wins in 21 matches with a 6-2, 7-5 win over Sorana Cirstea of Romania. "When we players are making mistakes on court we are sanctioned".

"I mean, like, I don't have a coach". I don't have a coach and haven't had one for years, of course he wasn't coaching me.

"It was a conversation, and coversations can change mentality".

"I go into that match with zero expectation". "Haha IRONIC coming from someone who gets on court coaching every week of the year and also out of the US Open", he responded.

Second seed Caroline Wozniacki, a two-time runner-up and reigning Australian Open champion, tackles Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine.
