Rafael Nadal cruises in 2017 China Open final for 75th career title

Nadal was well in control by then and he raced into a 5-0 lead in the second set before Kyrgios slightly delayed the inevitable as the Spaniard sauntered to his 12th consecutive win.

The No. 1 player in the world, Rafael Nadal continued to dominate in 2017, and he clinched one more title.

Nadal is now 2,370 points in front of Roger Federer, and he is confidently preserving the safe distance between him and his big rival.

Nadal, victor of the French Open and U.S. Open titles this year, has won six tournaments in a season for the first time since 2013 and strengthens his position at the top of the rankings ahead of Roger Federer.

Kyrgios is into his sixth ATP final, seeking a fourth title. Nadal, good friends with Dimitrov, will face German prodigy Alexander Zverev or temperamental Australian Nick Kyrgios in Sunday's final.

The only previous time Kyrgios has faced a World No. 1, he came out with a victory, beating Nadal in the fourth round at Wimbledon in 2014 when he was ranked No. 144.

The 31-year-old Nadal, who remains undefeated since returning to world No. 1 on August 21, tightened his grip on the top spot in the Emirates ATP Race To London.

"It's a really special trophy for me, as I won the tournament last week and now have again today", said Goffin, who brings his nine-match winning streak to China where he will see action at the Shanghai Rolex Masters. At 3-0, it was a long way back for the eighth seed. The 29-year-old Mannarino remained winless in four in ATP World Tour finals but he left Tokyo with $165,170 in prize money and 300 ranking points.

He saved two match points in his nervy opener against Frenchman Lucas Pouille. In other matches, Jared Donaldson defeated Pablo Cuevas, 6-7 (7), 6-4, 6-4 in 2 hours and 21 minutes, while Gilles Simon ousted wild card Yibing Wu, 6-3, 6-4.
