Zverev sails into third round at US Open after beating Nicolas Mahut

All the records that Roger Federer could break by winning US Open

In a freakish scene that caused an instant stir on social media, Lahyani got off his chair with Kyrgios down a set and trailing 3-0 in the second to give the Australian a pep talk.

According to a statement later released by the U.S. Open, Lahyani went down to Kyrgios due to the crowd noise and warned him over his apparent lack of interest in proceedings as well as advising him on possible medical assistance.

Second seed and five-time champion Federer, 37, made it 18 wins in 18 second round appearances in NY by seeing off error-plagued Frenchman Benoit Paire 7-5, 6-4, 6-4.

Kyrgios subsequently turned the match around to progress to the third round and an annoyed Herbert said afterwards he felt Lahyani had overstepped the mark.

Kyrgios said: "I'm not sure it was encouragement".

Seeking some sort of physical treatment, Kyrgios said: "Okay, "Just call the trainer to the court and I'll try". I feel good about our games". He said he liked me - I don't know if that's encouragement. The only thing he can tell him is pay attention, because if you continue like this, I'm going to give you a warning", said the 27-year-old, "They can tell him from the chair. It was not just about, 'How are you feeling?' 'Oh, I'm not feeling so well.' Go back up to the chair.

"I don't think he has to go down and take the position of a coach like you can see on the WTA Tour. I spend the least possible time here on site because that takes energy away", Zverev said.

Kyrgios shrugged off the entire episode as nothing new but the sight of an umpire offering unsolicited advice was uncomfortable enough that the United States Tennis Association (USTA) chose to investigate the incident.

Organisers said on Friday that Lahyani "went beyond protocol" but will be allowed to continue officiating.

This is behavior we should see more of these days. The umpire was like, "Nick, you can't be doing this".

Coincidentally, the Blue Jays and Indians face off during a four-game set at Rogers Centre beginning next Thursday, September 6th. Encarnacion told reporters after the Indians' 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday that Donaldson is a "great player".

"I umpired thousands of matches I was ATP head of officiating I can?t think of one".

"It's different", Federer said of playing the unpredictable Paire, who was at times brilliant but still managed 47 unforced errors and 11 double faults in the two-hour affair.

"She played the game I should have played", said two-time runner-up Wozniacki who has endured a Grand Slam letdown since winning in Australia.

Tennis's most mercurial talent is pumped for the pair's third-round US Open showdown on the sport's biggest stage in NY on Saturday (Sunday AEST).

"I get what he was trying to do".

"But you don't go speak like that". He was there for too long.

The Swiss was among those who thought Lahyani had crossed the line.

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.

Kyrgios wants to move on to and a match-up with arguably the game's greatest player is the flawless opportunity to refocus. That's why it won't happen again.
