  • 'I think I've found my purpose' - Nick Kyrgios reveals charity aim inspired by cancer victim

Nick Kyrgios claimed the scalp of the hottest prospect in tennis in Alexander Zverev on Saturday and then said he was gunning for Rafael Nadal in the China Open final.

Rafael Nadal beat Nick Kyrgios of Australia 6-2, 6-1 Sunday in the China Open final to win his sixth ATP title of the year, and Caroline Garcia defeated soon-to-be-No. That's very hard. Then, of course, he has great hands and a fantastic serve.

"I think he's close to his best level - if not he's even improved", Croft said, as quoted in Express. He has won his last 12 matches.

The world number one was a 6-3 4-6 6-1 victor as he booked his place in a 110th career final.

Nadal battles past Dimitrov to reach fourth China Open final
The Frenchman, who was a set down before going on to win 6-7 (5/7) 6-4 6-0, is now 7/4 for his first ATP Tour title with Sky Bet . Nadal hit a delicate backhand lob over the American, with the ball satisfyingly dropping just inside the baseline.

The two players looked set for a tight contest as Kyrgios battled to fend off five break points in his opening service game.

Nadal broke again for 4-0 lead and from there the result was never in doubt, with Kyrgios at least avoiding a second-set bagel.

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.

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

As a young team having to deal with the expectation and criticism of their performances, it is tough for them. Man-of-the-match Joe Hart also reckons people should be smiling.

Kyrgios was angered by a line call in the first set and his complaints eventually cost him a penalty point at the start of the eighth game. "So let's see what can happen in the future, but of course he will be a candidate for everything", he added.

Halep's best opportunity to rebound against Garcia ended when she failed to make good on any of the nine break points she had at 3-3 in the second set.

Now sits in 19th position in the world rankings, Kyrgios is still striving for the ATP Finals in London, which is only open to the world top eight players. "In the semi-final I played well, obviously beating Alex (Zverev)".

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!"
