Nadal beats Kyrgios in Beijing to win sixth title of the season

Nadal beats Kyrgios in Beijing to win sixth title of the season

Despite crushing Nick Kyrgios yesterday in the Beijing title, Rafael Nadal sang the praises of the Australian Open, calling him one of the toughest players to face on the tour, that is when he's not tanking. Like, I mean, I lost a tennis match, man.

"The feeling is if he really wants to play and wants to work, he is one of the players that have more talent to achieve a lot of things in this sport", said Nadal, who will go immediately on next to the Shanghai Masters.

But after that Nadal sliced through the opposition to win the China Open for the first time since making his debut in Beijing in 2005.

"Federer was playing such up-tempo, serve-volley, short-point type of tennis and I wondered if we'd ever see a place for the type of tennis Nadal played throughout his career", Croft explained.

In the women's single final earlier on Sunday, France's Caroline Garcia beat new world number one Simona Halep 6-4 7-6 (7-3) for her second successive title after victory at the Wuhan Open.

"I was like, seriously, this really happened?"

"It was such an unbelievable two weeks, it went so fast, I have the feeling I started these tournaments yesterday or two days ago".

Croft, now a pundit for Sky Sports, thinks Nadal is close to his best level after going 12 games unbeaten and credited the 15-time Grand Slam winner's decision to rest at the end of 2016 and let his body heal.

The Australian, who displayed his best in dumping out 20-year-old rising star Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals, said Nadal had "destroyed" him and admitted he had failed to react professionally.

"It was such an fantastic two weeks", Garcia said.

"For sure it definitely turned the second set", Garcia said. Garcia fell to her knees in celebration.
