Nadal wins 6th title of year in Beijing; Garcia beats Halep

Nadal wins 6th title of year in Beijing; Garcia beats Halep”

The world number one edged past Dimitrov 6-3, 4-6, 6-1 to set up the third meeting of the season with Kyrgios. But Halep dominated the first set, breaking Ostapenko's serve in the first game at love.

The world-ranked 19 displayed his best side in forcing Nadal to 2-2 in the first set, but his other side emerged later. I just didn't think it was fair, the first game in the match, break point.

Notably, Nadal decimated the Australian sensation in straight sets at Madrid Masters, but the 22-year-old returned the favour in the quarter-final of Cincinnati Masters enroute to the final of the hard-court Masters 1000 tournament.

Relishing Sunday's clash with Nadal, the Spanish 16-time Grand Slam champion, Kyrgios added: "He's one of the greatest players of all time and we've played a couple of times - he's beaten me and I've beaten him (this year)". Nadal was clutch when needed most.

Troubled Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios says he has finally found a objective in life and will build a facility for disadvantaged kids after being struck by the death of a young boy from cancer. The 31-year-old last won the China Open in 2005 when it was an ATP 250 event, but it has since changed to a 500 event. The No. 1 seed also saved each four of Kyrgios' break point opportunities.

His dream came into focus after he had a hit-up with a little boy with terminal brain cancer called Piotr before a match at the Australian Open this year.

Kyrgios says playing for money can leave one feeling "empty" - but he's so excited about this next step because he gets "more happiness from helping kids out and watching them succeed" than he does from his own wins.

Despite his advancing years Nadal is enjoying a stellar season following a catalogue of injuries in previous seasons, winning five titles including the US Open and French Open.

The 16-times grand slam victor has won his past 12 matches, and claimed his 75th career title in his fourth final in Beijing with minimal fuss. It was his sixth title of the 2017 season. Nadal held serve at love in his first three service games against Dimitrov and saved two break points in the seventh game.

"Second thing, we can not forget that we are not 20 years old any more".
