The combustible but talented 22-year-old, who had another meltdown during the China Open final loss to world No. 1 Rafael Nadal on Sunday (Oct 8), has long struggled with his demons, repeatedly losing focus mid-match and arguing with umpires and fans.

Rafael Nadal outclassed a frustrated Nick Kyrgios to clinch the China Open and win a 75th career title.

"He just destroyed me today, so it was too good", Kyrgios, who struck 20 winners but 35 unforced errors, said.

Unseeded Garcia of France won her second title in as many weeks as she stunned new world number one Simona Halep in a closely fought final.

"The key was definitely to be aggressive and try to dominate the rallies - my serve was really an important thing because she's a very good returner".

Kyrgios was angered by a line call in the first set and his complaints eventually cost him a penalty point at the start of the eighth game.

A Koondoola woman says she doesn't think Marilou Danley is involved in boyfriend Stephen Paddock's Las Vegas killing spree. Paddock did not check in to the room and it is unknown whether he was in Chicago that weekend, as first reported by TMZ .

Kyrgios offered Nadal eight break points in the first set with Nadal taking two service breaks. "He's one of the players with more talent on the tour".

But in light of his latest title, the 16-time Grand Slam champion admitted he was surprised to still even be playing in Beijing, let alone ending his 12-year wait for a second title.

The 23-year-old, who is set to rise from number 15 to nine in the world, sank to her knees on the hard court when she finally sealed victory in the second-set tie break.

Kyrgios, who had been pursuing a fourth ATP singles title, displayed honest self-appraisal when he said his heavy defeat to Nadal was "typical".

It was the third time in four meetings this season that Kyrgios has come out on top. "I'm excited", Kyrgios said after outclassing higher-ranked Alexander Zverev in the semi-final on Saturday.

Afterwards, the 16-time Grand Slam victor, who added the French Open and US Open to his tally in 2017, said: "In 2005 when I won here I never thought that in 2017 I would still be playing tennis!"
