Rafael Nadal won his sixth title of another remarkable year by beating Nick Kyrgios at the China Open. The 16-time Grand Slam champion Nadal saw the Australian Kyrgios hit with a penalty point as the Spanish number one eased to a 6-2, 6-1 victory. Nadal, for whom this was a landmark 75th ATP crown, came to the Chinese capital on the back of winning his third US Open. The 31-year-old saved two match points in his nervy opener against Frenchman Lucas Pouille, but was never really in trouble as Kyrgios’s final hopes evaporated in acrimony. (Hindustan Times )
