Lloyd believes Nadal wouldn't have stood for Kyrgios antics: "He would not have allowed himself to be dictated to"

Former British tennis star, John Lloyd has lambasted Nick Kyrgios for his on-court antics in his victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas at Wimbledon.

Next up is Cristian Garin for Kyrgios with a potential tie with Rafael Nadal set in the semi-finals and Lloyd believes if a repeat happens, Nadal wouldn't stand for it.

"Tsitsipas was the one who suffered from that and his frustration boiled over when he hit the ball into the crowd. For Tsitsipas to get a point penalty and Kyrgios just a warning for all he did was a joke, a complete joke," he told the Daily Mail.

"He (Kyrgios) should get to the semis now and if he does he would play Rafael Nadal and I’m telling you: Rafa would not have allowed that to happen last night. He would made much more of it to the umpire, got the supervisor. He would not have allowed himself to be dictated to like Tsitsipas was," he added.
