Imperious Nadal crushes Kyrgios to claim his sixth title of season

Grigor Dimitrov

Kyrgios has proved a tricky customer in the past for Nadal, who needed three sets to see off Grigor Dimitrov in the semi-finals, and the Australian held a 2-2 head-to-head record with the world number one entering the Beijing showpiece.

Kyrgios was already on a warning from the umpire from the first game of the match for something he said.

"At the same time, I know we both want to win and I'm just really happy with the way I played today".

"It was such an wonderful two weeks and it went so fast", the 23-year-old, who reached the quarter-finals of the French Open earlier this year, said.

Garcia is in the form of her life and edged out the Romanian second seed 6-4, 7-6 (7/3) to add the China Open to the Wuhan Open title she lifted last weekend.

And France's Caroline Garcia beat new world number one Simona Halep to win the China Open and overtake Briton Johanna Konta in the race for Singapore. If that happens, I hope to have my chances.


"He has to look back and think "what a great decision it was to take time off at the end of a year ago and fully recover the body".

With rain teeming down outside ahead of what turned out to be a cracker, a leak in the Diamond Court stadium roof had threatened to dampen proceedings.

"She played unbelievable tennis", Halep said of Garcia.

Garcia was 0-40 down on her own serve until dragging it to 40-40 and then saving half a dozen break points before somehow winning the game to go 4-3 up.

"It was such an wonderful two weeks", Garcia said.

Croft, now a pundit for Sky Sports, thinks Nadal is close to his best level after going 12 games unbeaten and credited the 15-time Grand Slam winner's decision to rest at the end of 2016 and let his body heal.
