Kyrgios has everything to succeed: Nadal

World number one Rafael Nadal demolished Nick Kyrgios to win his sixth title of the season at the China Open.

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.

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.

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

Kyrgios won the pair's most recent encounter 6-2, 7-5 at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Cincinnati.

Nadal is expected to target Dimitrov's single-handed backhand off his serve and does so successfully at 30-0 and 40-0.

And he is moments away now - Halep has taken the second set and a win over the No 8 seed to book her place in the final.

It is thought that May wants to demote Johnson, but is considering whether it is worth the risk of further Tory splits if the foreign secretary was sacked.

Kyrgios, who had been pursuing a fourth ATP singles title, displayed honest self-appraisal when he said his heavy defeat to Nadal was "typical".

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.

The second set was even more competitive and the attritional seventh game turned out to be a turning point.

The duo raced into the tie break, but Garcia now had the momentum and she held her nerve to make it a Wuhan-Beijing double.

The China Open final between Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios will be played not before 7:30pm local time, 5pm IST, 11:30am GMT. First thing, the tournament is bigger than 2005.

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!"

Nadal leads Kyrgios 3-2 in career meetings, and 2-1 this season.
