Nadal conquers frustrated Kyrgios to win 75th career title

Nadal conquers frustrated Kyrgios to win 75th career title 'I think I've found my purpose' - Nick Kyrgios reveals charity aim inspired by cancer victim

After dodging two match points against Lucas Pouille in the first round of the China Open, Nadal displayed devastating form (arguably his best off clay since the 2014 Australian Open) the rest of the week, culminating with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Nick Kyrgios in the final. The Frenchwoman will make her top-10 debut when the new rankings come out on Monday.

The 31-year-old French and US Open champion won nine games in a row on his way to reclaiming the trophy for the first time in 12years. "And if I'm angry, I'm not going to win the match".

Nick Kyrgios lost control of his emotions during the China Open final against Rafael Nadal, in which he received a point penalty following a series of verbal disagreements with the umpire. That's very hard. Then, of course, he has great hands and a fantastic serve.

Kyrgios offered Nadal eight break points in the first set with Nadal taking two service breaks.

The mercurial Kyrgios is known as much for his volatile temper as his prodigious talent.

Nadal has one of the best defence in tennis right now, but he needs to be wary of Kyrgios' big-serving ability.

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.

Nearby museums including the Science Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum were evacuated with Tube stations sealed off by police. A spokeswoman for the Natural History Museum told the BBC that "the Museum's visitors and staff are always our first priority".

In the second-set tiebreaker, the unseeded Garcia jumped out to 4-1, and on a first match point at 6-3 with Halep serving, the Romanian netted a forehand.

Garcia also won her final in straight sets.

"It was such an wonderful two weeks", Garcia said.

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 objective in life.

Nadal, the 16-time Grand Slam victor, admitted he was bemused by some of Kyrgios's antics.

In reaching his ninth final of the year, Kyrgios registered his third victory in four encounters with the 20-year-old German Zverev.
