Bahrami learned the game of tennis through the use of his hands or frying pans or broom handles, instead of racquets, and commented that his outrageous shotmaking ability resulted from mastering tennis using such unusual implements. His talent was obvious and he reached the Davis Cup team at 16, but the Islamic Revolution put an end to tennis in Iran. He fled to France where a number of friends supported him financially as he began to play a few tournaments within France. He became a successful doubles player who even reached the French Open doubles final in 1989 in partnership with Eric Winogradsky. Bahrami also formed a memorable doubles partnership with former French Open finalist and Davis Cup winner Henri Leconte.
At the age of 16, Bahrami was selected to play for the Davis Cup team.
In 1989, he and his partner, Eric Winogradsky, reached the doubles finals of the French Open.
