Nick Kyrgios shares the tennis court with Rafael Nadal impersonator Elliott Loney

2017 Citi Open

Nick Kyrgios had the pleasure of being entertained by Australian comedian Elliott Loney, as the pair played a few rounds on the practice courts at the Montreal Masters. 

Loney, known as the Rafael Nadal impersonator, was at it again as he teamed up with his fellow Aussie to provide the crowd with some entertainment. 

The entertainer usually dawns the entire outfit of the Spaniard, including the tennis racket, Nike gear, and the iconic headband during his performances.

Kyrgios, however, admitted that he did not allow the comedian to "trick" him into thinking that Loney was the real Nadal. 

Loney has a history of impersonating the 15-time Grand Slam champion, having already done so a couple of times this season. 

During the this year's Australian Open, the comedian, impersonating Nadal again, was interviewed by promising Kazakh Alexander Bublik. 

Following that cameo, the Aussie once again imitated the Spanish legend on a golf course in May, claiming that he would win the French Open proclaiming himself as the "King of Clay". 

Meanwhile, Kyrgios is set to face either Alexander Zverev or Richard Gasquet in the quarter-finals of the Roger's Cup following a victory over Paolo Lorenzi in the second round.

It is then possible he could earn himself a meeting with Nadal himself in the semi-finals if the 16th seed Australian is able to make it to the last four. 

On a lighthearted note, Kyrgios produced a moment of comic relief during his match against Lorenzi as he mistook the line judge for a ball boy. 

Having paused to dry himself off, the Aussie unknowingly hurled his sweaty towel towards the official thinking that he was the ball boy. 

The line judge did not seem to flinch one bit and Kyrgios was quick to realise the situation and offer his apologies to the official.
