Favorite Umpire

I had a nice conversation with Richou earlier, about umpires/referee and we'd like to know who do u like or hate as an umpire. :D
I start : Good umpires, the disco dancer aka Kader Nouni well yes sometimes he is incompetent (e.g. Zvonareva, Tipsarevic) but still it's human... lol

Good: Mohammad Lahyani! He's got a great personality and he lightens up a match while still being in total control.

Bad: Carlos Bernardes. Blake-Gonzalez Olympics 2008. Nuff said.

Mohammad Lahyani, for sure, he is the best for me, and when players are hesiting if the ball is in or out, the umpire go down and shows, not like others saying no it's or no it's out and sometimes they are wrong!

Carlos Bernardes, he usually comes to Buenos Aires for Copa Telmex and he didn't have any problem here :)

The guy's anti-American. He gave the shaft to Roddick in Montreal and then Blake in the Olympics. I blame him for James's fall from grace that occurred afterward as well. The Olympic semifinal was THE MOST IMPORTANT MATCH of James's career.
