Nadal eases past Kyrgios to claim China crown

Grigor Dimitrov

"To play every single day, it was just after every match you had to forget about what happened and be on the present again". The Frenchwoman will make her top-10 debut when the new rankings come out on Monday. I played very well during the whole event here, so let's see if I am able to hold that high level there in Shanghai.

Kyrgios appeared unable to get over an incorrect line call in the first game as he indulged in one of his infamous running debates with the umpire.

Nadal broke again for 4-0 lead and from there the result was never in doubt, with Kyrgios at least avoiding a second-set bagel.

"I have lot of respect for Nick", Nadal said. "It's a typical type of week for me: beat a player well, then pretty much no-show". Garcia said afterwards, asked what was in her mind when she slumped to her knees. She secured the top spot on Saturday with her semifinal victory over French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

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".

"I mean, I obviously didn't react professionally". Garcia fell to her knees in celebration. "It went so fast".

Nadal, the 16-time Grand Slam victor, admitted he was bemused by some of Kyrgios's antics. In that 2014 fourth-round encounter at Wimbledon, the then 144th-ranked Kyrgios emerged a four-set victor.

In his post-match press conference after his loss to Rafael Nadal in the China Open final on Sunday, the Australian player made a remarkable statement. He won his first in his Beijing debut in 2005.

Afterwards, the 16-time Grand Slam victor, who added the French Open and US Open to his tally in 2017, said: "In 2005 when I won here I never thought that in 2017 I would still be playing tennis!"

In reaching his ninth final of the year, Kyrgios registered his third victory in four encounters with the 20-year-old German Zverev.
