The crowd began booing. You as an umpire take a decision on the chair, do you like it or don't you like it.
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.'.
"Lahyani was concerned that Kyrgios might need medical attention".
However, Lahyani, a well-experienced umpire on men's ATP Tour and Grand Slam circuit, escaped any sanction and will be allowed to continue officiating at Flushing Meadows because of his "exemplary track record as an worldwide tennis official", a United States Tennis Association spokesman said. "I can't think of one", Ings tweeted. "He's not a coach, he's an umpire and he should stay in his chair for that".
However, the US Open officials are looking into the incident and referee Brian Earley has issued a statement to explain what happened. A chair umpire should be neutral.
While he wasn't aware at the time what Layhani was saying to Kyrgios, he slammed the umpire and the USTA for letting it happen in an extraordinary statement released after the match. I haven't had a coach for, like, years. Of course he wasn't coaching me. "Like, what are you talking about?" "I'm going to defend an umpire", McEnroe said.
Kyrgios said: "I'm not sure it was encouragement. He just said that it's not a good look", Kyrgios said about his chat with Lahyani. "I feel like I'm playing well".
"Knowing Mohamed, I really don't think that he meant to do it for any other reason but to help Nick understand that if he continues doing that, he might get a fine or penalty or whatever".
"I didn't listen to what they said, I just saw that Nick from that point started to play really focused, 100 per cent".

It is understood Rodgers told Dembele he could leave in January and earlier this summer but on Thursday, the Celtic manager confirmed a move away for Dembele was highly unlikely.
Nick Kyrgios appeared to take some advice to try harder from chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani as he rallied to beat Pierre-Hugues Herbert and reach the U.S. Open third round on Thursday.
"But his behavior and motivation on court changed from this moment and then dominated the match", fumed Herbert.
What there's never been a doubt about, however, is Kyrgios' talent and ability to entertain - when he puts his mind to it. He, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic have each taken titles at the first three major tournaments.
Kyrgios subsequently powered to victory, winning 4-6, 7-6, 6-3, 6-0 to set up a meeting with Roger Federer.
Normally, a chair umpire leans over from his or her post to speak to a seated player during a changeover. "Finally I do", said Zverev, who will face Philipp Kohlschreiber.
"I would say that is against the rules", Wilander said. I want to help you", "I've seen your matches: you're great for tennis.
"He was down there for too long".
Kyrgios' opponent was also asked about events on Court 17 and Herbert admitted that the Aussie was a changed man after the conversation while insisting he should have been able to close out the set himself. "It can be a physio, a doctor, an umpire, for that matter", Federer said.
