A wrong call by a line judge during Nick Kyrgios' match against Rafael Nadal in the China Open final, saw the Australian lose his composure throughout the match.

The Spanish Rafael Nadal, world number 1, has won on Sunday in Beijing, the 75th title of his career by besting the Australian Nick Kyrgios, 19th world, 6-2, 6-1 in just over an hour and a half. "And if I'm angry, I'm not going to win the match".

Unseeded Garcia edged Romanian Halep 6-4 7-6 (7-3) for her second successive title after victory at the Wuhan Open.

"He has to look back and think "what a great decision it was to take time off at the end of past year and fully recover the body".

"The key was definitely to be aggressive and try to dominate the rallies - my serve was really an important thing because she's a very good returner".

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. Let's see. This year I am playing well.
