Mansour Bahrami – Tennis’ Greatest Entertainer

Category : Videos

Mansour Bahrami is a professional tennis player from Iran. During his early 20′s, the coming of the Islamic Revolution in Iran meant the outlawing of tennis. But when he was finally allowed to play by escaping to France, he proved to be quite the entertaining player.

His specialty shots include the power shot through the legs, the lob through the legs and the drop shot which bounces back over the net due to excessive backspin. His sense of humour shines through all of his matches and the crowd is never sure of his next move, be it serving while holding six balls (although he is known to hold 21), an under arm serve, catching the ball in his pocket, deliberately missing a smash or playing an imaginary, slow-motion point.
