Nadal overwhelms Kyrgios in Beijing for 75th career title

Nadal conquers frustrated Kyrgios to win 75th career title

Kyrgios was on the wrong end of an unfavourable line call in the opening game of his clash with Nadal and crashed to defeat in 92 minutes in the China Open final.

Rafael Nadal said Nick Kyrgios has everything to succeed and that he hopes the Australian will fulfil his promise despite his latest high-profile meltdown in the China Open final.

Kyrgios started Sunday struggling with his serve and never found a confident range throughout the match.

"In the semifinal I played well, obviously beating Alex (Zverev)", Kyrgios said.

The Spaniard dropped his first set of the tournament to Lucas Pouille but eventually came through to win 4-6, 7-6, 7-5.

In the women's single final earlier on Sunday, France's Caroline Garcia beat new world number one Simona Halep 6-4 7-6 (7-3) for her second successive title after victory at the Wuhan Open.

"I have lot of respect for Nick, he's one of the players with more talent on the tour", Nadal, considered one of the best players ever, said. That's important for me.

Really, we're going to talk about it?' Asked if he was going to play the Shanghai Masters next, Kyrgios replied: 'Yeah, I'm leaving at I think 8:00 tomorrow.

After losing the first set 6-2, Kyrgios performed impatiently on the court.

"I am very pleased the way that I have been playing the whole week, after a very tough first day".

He has made no bones about not taking tennis seriously enough, and on Monday said it was down to feeling like he had no real goal in life.

The 23-year-old, who is set to rise from number 15 to nine in the world, sank to her knees on the hard court when she finally sealed victory in the second-set tie break. "I have been there couple of times, semifinals and final".

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!"
