Nadal eases past Kyrgios to claim China crown

10 October, 2017, 00:36 | Author: Greg Santos

World number one Rafael Nadal produced a ruthless performance to thrash Australian Nick Kyrgios 6-2 6-1 in the China Open final on Sunday for his 75th career singles title.

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.

The world No 19 was aiming for his first title of the year but fell to a convincing 6-2 6-1 defeat in Beijing.

Nadal, 31, secured the opening set thanks to two breaks of serve before racing through the second set against an out of sorts Kyrgios who struggled to cope with the greater consistency from Nadal's racket.

Despite his new-found direction, Kyrgios said he was not trying to make out all was now well in his life, and at his age, he still had a lot to learn.

"He has to look back and think "what a great decision it was to take time off at the end of a year ago and fully recover the body".

The Belgian fourth seed, fresh from his victory at the Shenzhen Open, beat the Frenchman 6-3 7-5 in one hour and 24 minutes.

"For me this is a very important victory".

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

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. "The past year that I had the trophy with me was in 2005. In the semi-final I played well, obviously beating Alex, it's a typical type of week for me: Beat a player well, then pretty much no-show".

The 26-year-old Halep had the superior mobility - Garcia had her right thigh strapped - but the French player was making the better shots.

"This is a title that last time that I had the trophy with me was in 2005".

'In 2005 when I won here, I never thought in 2017 I would still be playing here so I'm very happy to be here again, ' he said after the match.
