Mansour Bahrami is not your typical tennis player. Best known for his trick shots and on-court entertainment, Bahrami featured in the Iranian Davis Cup team at the age of sixteen but political issues in Iran meant that it was some years after he burst onto the scene before he was able to forge a successful doubles career. His career highlight was reaching the French Open doubles final in 1989 with Eric Winogradsky. Bahrami has famously never had a tennis lesson and has even used a frying pan to teach himself all his tricks! He remains a popular figure here at Hurlingham and has been affectionately nicknamed ‘The Court Jester’ in reference to his showmanship. This year marks his 26th appearance at Hurlingham for the tennis, highlighting his insatiable love for game.
