Kyrgios sets up Beijing showdown with Nadal

Caroline Garcia upset new world number one Simona Halep in the women's final as Rafael Nadal clinched the men's title with a dominant victory over Nick Kyrgios at the China Open in Beijing.

Controversial tennis star Nick Kyrgios is adamant he has found his objective in the wake of his straight sets loss to Rafael Nadal in the China Open final.

The world No 19 was aiming for his first title of the year but fell to a convincing 6-2 6-1 defeat in Beijing.

Nick Kyrgios believes he has found his life's goal in helping underprivileged children and he is planning to set up a facility for them in Melbourne.

"I can't play at 100 percent if that stuff happens - and then you expect me not to be angry", Kyrgios told Lahyani. "He's one of the players with more talent on the tour".

The world number one was a 6-3 4-6 6-1 victor as he booked his place in a 110th career final. "After that I think I played one of the best events of the year, playing very solid the whole event, playing against very tough opponents", Nadal continued.

"For me this is a very important victory".

Kyrgios has revealed his desire to build a facility for disadvantaged and underprivileged kids after he crumbled in the China Open final to fall 6-2, 6-1 in Beijing.

"He has a massive future ahead and I'm really good friends with him so it's always fun playing him".

The result over fellow rising star Zverev pushed him to 15th spot in the ATP Race To London and contest the ATP finals in November.

Nadal leads Kyrgios 3-2 in career meetings, and 2-1 this season. "I'm excited", Kyrgios said after outclassing higher-ranked Alexander Zverev in the semi-final on Saturday.

It continues what has been a stellar year for the Spaniard as he not only won a record 10th French Open title and his third US Open title, but also returned to the top of the ATP tennis rankings for the first time since 2014.
