Rafael Nadal beats Nick Kyrgios, wins China Open title

And Petra Kvitova knocked the Women's former No 1 Caroline Wozniacki out of the competition

No. 1 seed Nadal defeated the Australian with a 6-2 6-1 score to lift the Beijing title.

It was another Jekyll and Hyde performance from the unpredictable Kyrgios, who battled bravely to fend off five break points in his opening service game. But Halep dominated the first set, breaking Ostapenko's serve in the first game at love.

Kyrgios was angered by a line call in the first set and his complaints eventually cost him a penalty point at the start of the eighth game. But I was lucky the first day saving the two match points.

Kyrgios didn't make it onto the board in the second set until he was serving with Nadal already leading 5-0.

The match was much closer than the result might suggest.

"The feeling is if he really wants to play and wants to work, he is one of the players that have more talent to achieve a lot of things in this sport", said Nadal, who will go immediately on next to the Shanghai Masters.

United Nations refugee agency alarmed by surge in fleeing Rohingya migrants
The World Food Programme (WFP) said the cuts were temporary and due to delays in receiving payments. But even as refugees arrive, Bangladesh insists they will all have to go home.

The 31-year-old nearly shut out Kyrgios in the second set and took a 5-0 lead before the Australian won his solitary game to slightly delay the inevitable as Nadal sauntered to his 12th consecutive win.

But in light of his latest title, the 16-time Grand Slam champion admitted he was surprised to still even be playing in Beijing, let alone ending his 12-year wait for a second title.

There was no way back as Nadal raced to victory to collect his 75th career title at the same cherished venue where he earned Olympic gold in 2008.

The 31-year-old's six trophies this year include a record 10th title at the French Open and a third at the U.S. Open. It was his sixth title of the 2017 season.

Garcia's feat was all the more remarkable because she was carrying a leg injury that has required frequent on-court treatment and completed a mammoth three-set quarter-final win well past midnight on Friday evening.

In August the 22-year-old, ranked No 20 in men's singles, crashed out of the US Open in a blaze of broken rackets and bad language and he's faced repeated accusations of throwing matches and numerous on-court meltdowns.
