Nadal wins 6th title of year in Beijing; Garcia beats Halep

Rafael Nadal vs Grigor Dimitrov LIVE

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.

Troubled Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios says he has finally found a objective in life and will build a facility for disadvantaged kids after being struck by the death of a young boy from cancer.

After dodging two match points against Lucas Pouille in the first round of the China Open, Nadal displayed devastating form (arguably his best off clay since the 2014 Australian Open) the rest of the week, culminating with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Nick Kyrgios in the final. A great classic for Kyrgios, what... The last time the Spaniard won at least six titles in a year was in 2013 when he captured 10 trophies for the season.

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. When you play against him, looks that he has time for everything.

Kyrgios won the pair's most recent encounter 6-2, 7-5 at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Cincinnati.

Kyrgios was incensed in the opening game when a line call went against him on break point.

Nadal broke again for 4-0 lead and from there the result was never in doubt, with Kyrgios at least avoiding a second-set bagel.

"I'm playing for them now".

Halep's best opportunity to rebound against Garcia ended when she failed to make good on any of the nine break points she had at 3-3 in the second set.

"She played wonderful tennis", Halep said of Garcia. I think I've found my goal in the last couple of months.

Nadal, victor of the French Open and U.S. Open titles this year, has won six tournaments in a season for the first time since 2013 and strengthens his position at the top of the rankings ahead of Roger Federer.
