Watch highlights of the China Open final between Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios in Beijing

The champion of the Internationaux de France, and the United States has won five titles this season and is on track to finish the year atop the world rankings.

But Kyrgios showed his best side for a Beijing crowd that lapped up his fearsome shot-making and showmanship.

Isner was impressive in blasting his way past Argentina's Leonardo Mayer 6-0, 6-3 and Nadal said: "Tomorrow will be tough against Isner, he's playing unbelievably well". "I played a great first set, in my opinion".

Dubbed as the "baby Federer" in the younger days of his career, Dimitrov adopts a playing style similar to Nadal's biggest rival of his life as he is a very aggressive player looking to dictate play throughout the match.

It was the third time in four meetings this season that Kyrgios has come out on top. "For me it's an important one and I'm very happy".

"I think I played a solid match".

"I do not keep in mind to have committed a lot of mistakes", explained Nadal.

Train-bus collision in Russia's Vladimir region kills 14
Petersburg to Nizhny Novgorod on Thursday night when it collided with a bus in the Petushinsky district of the Vladimir region. The state-owned Russian news agency TASS reported that officials blame a technical malfunction on the bus for the crash.

Nadal broke Isner in the ninth game of the first set to take a 5-4 lead and then closed out the set easily.

Also, third-seeded Sorana Cirstea defeated fourth-seeded Karolina Pliskova 6-1, 7-5, Caroline Garcia beat Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-1, and Petra Kvitova beat former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki 6-1, 6-4.

"I think I played pretty OK tennis".

Dimitrov booked his place in the last four on Beijing's outside hard courts with a 7-6 (7/5), 4-6, 6-2 victory over another Spaniard, Roberto Bautista Agut.

"My dream is true now, in that moment you can not believe 100 percent that it's happening, so I was in tears a little bit", she said.

She will meet the victor of the quarter-final between Ukrainian third seed Elina Svitolina and unseeded Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia. He was leading 6-3, 3-0 when his opponent Steve Darcis of Belgium retired with a shoulder problem.

Australia's Nick Kyrgios will face Russia's Andrey Rublev or Germany's Alexander Zverev in the other match.
