For about 20 years, we played tennis matches with Ilie Nastase

This professional tennis player continued his words and added: Ilie Nastase played tennis matches for about 20 years and we played together about 15-20 times a year and maybe 300, 400 times and he is a very emotional person. And he really pays attention to everyone and has a very big heart, and now that I saw him at the 77th edition of the Cannes International Film Festival, he is older, but he still has the same love for me as always, and I am very happy that someone I am one of his friends.

We have many good memories together.

I saw Nastase after many years at Roland Carros stadium in Paris

I could not play tennis and I stayed in Iran and after a few years I went abroad; I had not seen him for several years and at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, I saw him from a distance and when he approached; I got up and greeted him and told him that you remember my Ilie Nastase? He said: Mansour, I have been missing you for many years and I thought that you were killed in the events of the revolution or something bad happened to you. He said if there is anything I can do for you, tell me so that I can help you.

That night, I had nowhere to sleep and nothing to eat

He also said: Because at that time, Ilie Nastase was one of the famous heroes of the world. Honestly, that night, I had nowhere to sleep and nothing to eat; But the fact that he just told me: “If Mansour has done anything for me, I am at your service”, that was enough for me. I said to him: Nastase, everything is great, everything is very good, thank you for your kindness, but it’s okay, we’ll see each other again.

At the end of this interview, Mansour Bahrami emphasized: In fact, that night, I had no place to sleep, but I did not want to go to Ilie Nastase’s house, and I had to pull myself out of the water in another way. First, the documentary film “Nasty” starts with my words, which I mention. They made a good documentary about him. I am happy to see this movie and meet him again.
