Rafael Nadal savours each victory more than ever after injuries

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal extended his win streak to 12 straight after defeating Australia's Nick Kyrgios in straight sets on Sunday to win the men's singles title of China Open.

He received criticism about the way he played in the final as he lost it 6-2, 6-1, but the 23-year-old stated, 'I don't really care.

"He has everything", said Nadal, who like Kyrgios will head immediately from Beijing to the Shanghai Masters, where Roger Federer will also be in action.

The first four or five games were hotly contested and of sublime quality, but Nadal's returning, which was vastly better than it was in a loss to Kyrgios this summer in Cincinnati, and clutch serving wore down Kyrgios, who also let a bad call in the first game fester in his mind.

"It's not fair dude", Kyrgios complained at one point.

"Of course the essence of my game.is probably the same, but during the years and during your career, I always say the same, of course you lose things". I'll spend a few days catching up with everyone in Canberra, and then I'll drive to Melbourne to get stuck in at the facility.

The Turks had the better of the first half, with Ahmed Kutucu's headed goal from a corner putting them 1-0 in front. Outside the field of play, Matos will hope that a sizeable crowd will again turn up to cheer them on.

"We've played a couple of times - he's beaten me and I've beaten him [this year]". Nadal held serve at love in his first three service games against Dimitrov and saved two break points in the seventh game.

Despite his frustration following the defeat in Beijing, and the decision that caused his rant, Kyrgios was full of praise for the 31-year-old Spaniard Nadal.

Garcia is in the form of her life and edged out the Romanian second seed 6-4, 7-6 (7/3) to add the China Open to the Wuhan Open title she lifted last weekend. A great classic for Kyrgios, what... The young Australian was very vulgar, and he even received warnings, which automatically meant that next penalty would be suspension from the match.

"It was such an awesome two weeks, it went so fast, I have the feeling I started these tournaments yesterday or two days ago".

After speaking with his family they are now looking for locations and business partners to help make the dream a reality.
