Nadal conquers frustrated Kyrgios to win 75th career title

The world-ranked 19 Kyrgios displayed his best side in forcing Nadal to 2-2 in the first set, but his other side soon emerged.

The 31-year-old, champion in 2005, now has six titles for the season, while Kyrgios - who had never met Nadal in a final - must quickly regroup to maintain his slim hopes of playing the season-ending ATP Finals.

It is just the latest indiscretion for Kyrgios, 22, whose potential has often been betrayed by his temperament - including at last year's Shanghai Masters, where he was fined for "lack of best efforts" in an extraordinary defeat to Mischa Zverev.

Having then been angered by a line call the Australian proceeded to complain to the umpire which eventually cost him a penalty point at the start of the eighth game. Now riding a 12-match win streak, it's Nadal's first title in the post-US Open portion of the season since winning Tokyo in 2010, where he also saved match point en route to the title.

It appeared as though the tide may have turned when Kyrgios earned two break points at the start of the second, but Nadal kept his composure.

Former British number one Annabel Croft believes Rafael Nadal's decision to let his body recover has paid dividends following his China Open win.

It continues what has been a stellar year for the Spaniard as he not only won a record 10th French Open title and his third US Open title, but also returned to the top of the ATP tennis rankings for the first time since 2014.

"In the semi-final I played well, obviously beating Alex, it's a typical type of week for me: beat a player well, then pretty much no-show".
