Nadal lifts China Open; Garcia shocks Halep

Nadal lifts China Open; Garcia shocks Halep

It happened after one point where Kyrgios began cursing after he hasn't seen one ball and the trace of it.

"She played fantastic tennis", Halep said of Garcia. "After that, I think I played one of the best events of the year, playing very solid the whole week and playing against very tough opponents".

The duo raced into the tie break, but Garcia now had the momentum and she held her nerve to make it a Wuhan-Beijing double.

United States to sell missile defense system to Saudi Arabia
Mr Putin hailed the visit from the king - the first sitting Saudi monarch to visit Russian Federation - as a "landmark event". The US State Department has approved an estimated $15bn possible sale of a THAAD anti-missile defence system to Saudi Arabia.


Kyrgios, who admitted he was far from knowing he had "life all figured out now", said he "lost a bit of composure" in his China Open final against Rafael Nadal last week, but that he was happy with his performance. "She deserved to win today".

In the second-set tiebreaker, the unseeded Garcia jumped out to 4-1, and on a first match point at 6-3 with Halep serving, the Romanian netted a forehand.

Kyrgios made a bright start to the contest, fending off five break points in second game to keep things tight in the opening set. Garcia fell to her knees in celebration. The last time he won at least six titles in a year was in 2013 when he captured 10 trophies for the season. "It went so fast". When you play against him, looks that he has time for everything. He fought off two against Lucas Pouille in the first-round.

Rahul Gandhi Launches Scattering Attack On PM Modi, Shah In Gujarat Rally
Days after corruption charges surfaced against BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay, Rahul Gandhi urged PM Modi to clarify the issue. Singh said the Congress is a master of "beta model" and should have understood the difference between turnover and profit.


In that 2014 fourth-round encounter at Wimbledon, the then 144th-ranked Kyrgios emerged a four-set victor.

Kyrgios claimed the scalp of the hottest prospect in Tennis in Alexander Zverev on Saturday and then said he was gunning for Nadal.

The Spaniard, appearing in the 110th final of his career, cruised to his first China Open title since 2005 as eighth-seeded Kyrgios was hindered by his own inconsistency and rarely troubled the top seed. Nadal dug in and improbably reeled off nine straight games to lead 6-2, 5-0 before Kyrgios tallied a moral victory by preventing the first 0-6 set of his ATP career.
