Rafael Nadal WINS China Open final as fuming Nick Kyrgios implodes

Nadal lifts China Open; Garcia shocks Halep

Nadal trounced Australian Nick Kyrgios 6-2 6-1 in the final to win his 75th career title.

The world number one took control from the start.

Sixteen-time grand slam champion Nadal beat Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 6-3 4-6 6-1 in his semi-final. When I saw the draw at the beginning of the tournament, I knew that it will be very, very hard to have good chances here. I had very tough draw here.

"It's not fair dude", Kyrgios complained at one point.

A frustrated Kyrgios then fended off five break-point chances for Nadal but was soon remonstrating with the umpire and was heard saying "It's one call, it changes the match". The young Australian was very vulgar, and he even received warnings, which automatically meant that next penalty would be suspension from the match. The Australian is not a kid anymore, and on the other hand, his results are not giving him the right to demand anything, especially some kind of special treatment. He's got a massive future ahead of him, but I played really well tonight and knew what my game plan was going to be. He's in great form. "He just destroyed me today, so it was too good", Kyrgios, who struck 20 winners but 35 unforced errors, said. He played well, I played bad. It's tough to find positives when you won (just) three games in the final. "Of course, it is a very important achievement for me to continue with the positive feelings after winning the US Open".

As far as I'm concerned, we've collected the World Cup ticket and we are going to Russian Federation next year. They will play Algeria in a meaningless match in the last round next month.

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.

"This is a title that last time that I had the trophy with me was in 2005". It is completely different. "Even the second set, even though I won it, I think I could have done a lot of things better".

He also got 500 points and increased his lead in the standings, probably securing the top spot in the ATP rankings at the end of this year.

Now up to 2,360 points over Swiss maestro Roger Federer, Nadal has put himself in prime position to cap his 2017 campaign in No. 1 fashion.
