- Mohd, let's talk about that epic match against VMoe. How disappointed were you at the end of match ? You seemed to be taking the loss pretty hard. Some reporters saw you crying.
We played three times can u say which one of them?
Actually i ddnt cry thats wrong cuz only when i win a tournament u will see me crying cuz its too hard to win a title with many good players , so the QF of RG it was a difficult match as u know u r playing with vmoe one of the best players in our tour , so i started breaking him in the first set and in the third set , and i had a lot of chances but his experience is better than me and he flip the table , i was upset but not crying as some reporters said haha

- What does loosing in TE means to you ?
Its mean nothing actually but , when u play some important matches it means a lot so, when i lose thse matches i feel bad tbh cuz in some matches high ping and high delay Affects when u play ,even some final matches when u lose it u feel bad and sad in the same time but u should forget it as soon as possible

Im not the first professional tennis players how can we forget pidzi and vram and richie and inseedious and a lot who r they a professional tennis player so im not the only one haha
- Let's get controversial a bit if you may,You were suspended multiple times in the past, how did you put your demons to rest ?
You can say i killed them all hahaa , not tbh when u start playing in the ITST tour as a new player u may did a lot of mistakes , and also i got banned in the past , so all of these thing makes somebody looking me like im a very bad person and im not , thats why after coming back of last time i got banned in 2016 , i start thinking why im doing like all these things , also one of my dreams in this game is to be a respected , so i decide to be another person and thnx god.
- How does it feel to be the best TE player in Bahrein ?
Im feeling great man , when u play for ur country and reaching top 10 with a lot of amazing players which i was dreaming to beat them and now i bet some of them , im always proud to be the firt bahrainian player who reached top 10 , its an amazing feeling for sure.
- Is there anyone you admire on tour ? Who's the most impressive player you've played ?
Yes there is , and thnx god i won against him but in a friendly match, its pidzi for sure he is my hero , i was watching his matches a lot and still , he is a complete player , he can be aggrasive and defensive he is all around for sure , and i say to myself: i hope i can beat him at least 1 set and i did it 2 times in a friendly match , he is one of the players who make me better and better , even inseedious i practiced with him a lot these 2 players is the reason of playing my best tennis

Winning a slam and reaching no1 and no doubt master tournamets for sure , i believe in myself.
- What's your biggest win/accomplishment in your ITST career ?
When i won theboss94 in the final of BMW 250 , when he lead 2/6 then 6/6 with 3 match points he had then i cameback and winning 7/6 7/6 that was my best match and most difficult one.
- Some people on tour think you are a vulture, meaning you play low ranked tournaments to get easy points/wins, what do you want to say to those accusing you of such behaviour ?
hahaha i stopped playing challenger and future when my ranks. allows me to play them i play them , its normal when i start joining the tour i play these tournaments , but when i reached 20 istarted playing 250 and 500 and masters and slam , all of these tournaments we have the biggest player playing in these tournaments, and these people ddnt respet the other players , cuz when i signed up for chellanger and future , my rank is allowed me to join them otherwise i will not playing them as im doing now cu im thinking in most important events.

Yeah there is some of players who will be the star in the future like onder1993 and tatlowaute and michaelID they will be the best in then next 2 years
- Some player play train less than you and get better results, how do you explain it ?
Give me an example of top 20 playing less than me and have better result than me?We can say yes for the top players cuz they r talented but other players i dont see them having better result , and to proof to u , look at my rank now and in the top 10 all of top 10 playing best tennis this year so who is in the top 20 have better result.
- There were even rumours you bribed ITST Top Management in exchange for allowing you to return on the tour after latest suspension, is that true ?
No way thats not true all top managment starting from djarvik and VMoe (van moe) and isaldor now they the best managment , they give me a lot of chances , all what they do is they trust me to change from myself and being better , thats the case nothing like that they r bigger than this things
- This year you won your first title on regular tour along with a few others, how did you celebrated it, is there a chance you even drank some alcohol or even eat some pork ?
No, im soo emotional tbh with u , if i won start crying little bit after what i did all the years to be like today , and just being happy cuz im muslim and im not drinking alcohol.
- One last question before you go. Do you think you are a good role Model and inspiration to other players?
In the real life or in tennis ?
In real life im a good role in something and bad in something as u know im not perfect , i had a lot of mistakes , but in tennis i hope in the future to be a good role in my tennis style and being the ideal of him just like me when i said to u before pidzi is my hero and inseedious also , because without these 2 guys mohd will never be like today
