Grigor Dimitrov

Rafael Nadal outclassed a frustrated Nick Kyrgios to clinch the China Open and win a 75th career title. He has won his last 12 matches.

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.

Kyrgios' frustrations began in the opening game of the first set when he bemoaned his fortune after a line judge incorrectly ruled a groundstroke had landed out with the Australian at break point on Nadal's serve.

"It felt like the game was moving towards a more aggressive type of play but it shows [the] hard work he's put in, the fitness he's worked on, my goodness there's still a massive place for him".

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

Kyrgios, the world number 19, who never shies away from a challenge has said he is excited about facing Nadal, who according to him, will eye revenge on Sunday. Garcia said afterwards, asked what was in her mind when she slumped to her knees.

Maybe it's the calm before the storm". "Maybe now, nearly more than any other time, we need a great military". Trump concluded this screed with the declaration that " only one thing will work ".

Kyrgios, who had been pursuing a fourth ATP singles title, displayed honest self-appraisal when he said his heavy defeat to Nadal was "typical".

She hit 17 winners and saved nine break points in the second set to move into the eighth and final qualifying spot for coming Singapore tournament.

The second set was even more competitive and the attritional seventh game turned out to be a turning point.

"It was such an fantastic two weeks", Garcia said. Garcia fell to her knees in celebration. First thing, the tournament is bigger than 2005.

It continues what has been a stellar year for the Spaniard as he not only won a record 10th French Open title and his third US Open title, but also returned to the top of the ATP tennis rankings for the first time since 2014.

Nadal leads Kyrgios 3-2 in career meetings, and 2-1 this season.
