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. Kyrgios responded by saving five break points in the second game.

The 22-year-old Australian was upset with a call in the first game and appeared unable to let it go after that, earning a warning and then a penalty point.

The world number 19 revealed he had a vision several years ago to create somewhere for disadvantaged and underprivileged kids to "hang out, be safe and feel like they were part of a family".

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.

Kyrgios hit the line on his break point in the opening game and got to the net - a lineswoman signaled it's in and then signaled it's out. Kyrgios, who is known for his big serves, took the attack to Zverev early in the match and decimated him 63, 7-5.

Nadal, a two-time Grand Slam champion this year, never appeared in danger of losing to Kyrgios despite the fiery Australian making an encouraging start to the encounter.

Troubled Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios says he has finally found a goal in life and will build a facility for disadvantaged kids after being struck by the death of a young boy from cancer.

"When I have been in that position (injured), I don't remember the people talking that much about these things", Nadal said after defeating the 26-year-old Dimitrov in their semi-final. The No. 1 seed also saved each four of Kyrgios' break point opportunities.

"To play every single day, it was just after every match you had to forget about what happened and be on the present again". It was his sixth title of the 2017 season.

The 31-year-old now sits 2370 points ahead of Federer heading into the Shanghai Masters - where Nadal will face American Jared Donaldson in the second round.

Garcia's feat was all the more remarkable because she was carrying a leg injury that has required frequent on-court treatment and completed a mammoth three-set quarter-final win well past midnight on Friday evening. The Romanian will be looking for her second title of the year after winning in Madrid.
