  • Rafa Nadal celebrates with the trophy in Beijing

Kyrgios was also docked a point for arguing with the umpire over a close line call in his 6-2 6-1 defeat by Rafa Nadal in the China Open final on Sunday and he has admitted to not being dedicated enough during his rollercoaster career.

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.

Insisting that Kyrgios has great hands and a fantastic serve, the 31-year-old said that the world number 20 possesses everything possible to compete in major events of the year.

Kyrgios has revealed his desire to build a facility for disadvantaged and underprivileged kids after he crumbled in the China Open final to fall 6-2, 6-1 in Beijing.

Nadal has one of the best defence in tennis right now, but he needs to be wary of Kyrgios' big-serving ability.

"I have lot of respect for Nick", Nadal said.

Garcia also won her final in straight sets.

He has made no bones about not taking tennis seriously enough, and on Monday said it was down to feeling like he had no real goal in life.

9am: So we are expecting Nadal and Dimitrov on court no earlier than 9.30am but we could start later than that - especially if French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko digs her heels in.

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. The wildcard entries beat the second seeds 6-4 7-6 (7-1) for their first ATP World Tour team title.

But that was soon fixed and there was little between the two players until Garcia broke Halep in the 10th game to grab the first set.

"In 2005, I never will believe that I will keep playing tennis in 2017", Nadal said.

It was the third time in four meetings this season that Kyrgios has come out on top.
