Rafael Nadal beats Nick Kyrgios to claim second China Open title

Grigor Dimitrov

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal won his sixth title of another remarkable year as he punished a disgruntled Nick Kyrgios at the China Open yesterday.

Kyrgios, who admitted he was far from knowing he had "life all figured out now", said he "lost a bit of composure" in his China Open final against Rafael Nadal last week, but that he was happy with his performance.

In contrast, Nadal always looked in charge and saved all four break points he faced.

And the unseeded American said of playing Nadal: "You want to play against the best and see how your game stacks up". Nadal took immediate control of the third set, racing to a 4-0 lead.

"I've been asking myself that question for the last couple of years". "He's one of the players with more talent on the tour".

Halep will play the victor of the semifinal between Garcia and Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic. "She deserved to win today". Muguruza retired during her opening match on Monday because of a cold.

Ostapenko entered the semifinal without the loss of a set during the week.

The second set was even more competitive and the attritional seventh game turned out to be a turning point. "This game was definitely very important". Garcia fell to her knees in celebration.

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

Elsewhere, Frenchman Lucas Pouille also progressed as he ousted Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-4, 6-2.

In that 2014 fourth-round encounter at Wimbledon, the then 144th-ranked Kyrgios emerged a four-set victor.

The game was 3:6, 6:4, 1:6 in the semi-finals of the Beijing tournament, where previous year the Bulgarian defeated the Spaniard in two sets on the 1/4-finals and reached the final.

"It's all I've been thinking about outside of tennis since then", he said, adding that he and his family were scoping out land in Melbourne and looking for organisations to partner with.

Kyrgios was back in the spotlight after he capitulated 6-2, 6-1 to the Spanish world No.1 in Beijing on Sunday, during which he swore, argued with the umpire and was docked a point.
