Kyrgios can go all the way, says Nadal

Simona Halep of Romania celebrates defeating Jelena Ostapenko of Lativa to secure her world number one ranking after the women's singles semi-final match in the China Open tennis tournament at the Diamond Court in Beijing, China, Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017.

Notably, Nadal decimated the Australian sensation in straight sets at Madrid Masters, but the 22-year-old returned the favour in the quarter-final of Cincinnati Masters enroute to the final of the hard-court Masters 1000 tournament.

Nadal is now 2,370 points in front of Roger Federer, and he is confidently preserving the safe distance between him and his big rival.

Kyrgios, who was going after a fourth career title, was already on a warning from umpire Mohamed Lahyani for something he said in disputing a call in the first game of the match.

The 31-year-old nearly shut out Kyrgios in the second set and took a 5-0 lead before the Australian won his solitary game to slightly delay the inevitable as Nadal sauntered to his 12th consecutive win.

Nadal added that he hopes the temperamental Kyrgios, ranked 19 in the world, will one day fulfil his potential.

Kvitova said with the end of the season in sight, many players are running on empty.

Nadal, who won his 16th Grand Slam title with victory at the US Open last month, was also in confident form as he swept aside Kyrgios 6-2, 6-1 in a one-sided men's final.

The Spaniard won nine games in a row on his way to a comprehensive 6-2 6-1 victory to reclaim the trophy he last won in 2005. A great classic for Kyrgios, what...

Asked how his latest indiscretions might be viewed, Kyrgios replied with disdain: "I don't really care. If I lose, it will allow me to know what was my game lacking, what I need to improve on to beat guys like him". Who cares? Why are we focusing on that?

"This dream is going to become a reality".
