LATEST STORIES “Mohamed is a world-class and highly respected official. However, his actions during the match crossed a line that compromised his own impartiality as a chair umpire,” Gayle Bradshaw, ATP executive vice president of rules and competition, said in Tuesday’s statement. “Although well-intended, his actions were regrettable and cannot go without disciplinary action on our own Tour. We know that he will learn from this experience and we look forward to welcoming him back in October.”Lahyani will be able to resume umpiring at the Stockholm Open on Oct. 15.His suspension was first reported by The New York Times.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title MOST READ The ATP says Layhani’s actions during Kyrgios’ second-round victory over Pierre-Hugues Herbert at Flushing Meadows on Aug. 30 were “deemed to have compromised the impartiality that is required of an official.”According to the statement, he is one of seven full-time ATP chair umpires.
