Rafael Nadal beats Nick Kyrgios to claim second China Open title

"Finally I won this event again", said Nadal after his comprehensive win.

The reigning US Open champion started the tournament on a patchy note as he was pushed to the limits by Lucas Pouille.

In January, he also had a verbal run-in with tennis legend John McEnroe who called Kyrgios "a black eye for the sport" and failed to make it past the early rounds of a Grand Slam. Garcia said afterwards, asked what was in her mind when she slumped to her knees.

World No. 1 #Rafael Nadal outclassed #Nick Kyrgios, 6-2, 6-1, to bag his second China Open title Sunday and strengthen his bid for the year-end No. 1. I'm very excited for doubles obviously.' He still plans to play in Antwerp, Basel, Paris Masters and provided he qualifies, the World Tour Finals in London as well.

The Spaniard, appearing in the 110th final of his career, cruised to his first China Open title since 2005 as eighth-seeded Kyrgios was hindered by his own inconsistency and rarely troubled the top seed.

For Halep, the loss was particularly disappointing as she was unable to back up her guaranteed debut in the No. 1 ranking on Monday.

Nadal will now head to Shanghai for the Shanghai Masters, which began with first round action at the Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena today.

But that was soon fixed and there was little between the two players until Garcia broke Halep in the 10th game to grab the first set. She cemented her lead with another break in the seventh game for a 5-2 lead to serve out the set. It's tough to find positives when you won three games in the final.

The world number one was a 6-3 4-6 6-1 victor as he booked his place in a 110th career final. The young Australian was very vulgar, and he even received warnings, which automatically meant that next penalty would be suspension from the match.
