  • Rafa Nadal celebrates with the trophy in Beijing

The 31-year-old world number one was barely threatened by his Australian opponent in Beijing as the 22-year-old struggled to regain his composure after losing his cool when a line call was wrongly judged against him in the opening game of the match.

Nadal, who won his 16th Grand Slam title with victory at the US Open last month, was also in confident form as he swept aside Kyrgios 6-2, 6-1 in a one-sided men's final.

Nadal defeated Kyrgios 6-2, 6-1 in what turned out to be a one-sided summit clash in Beijing. The victory also allowed him to surpass 60 wins in a season for the ninth time.

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. I played very well during the whole event here, so let's see if I am able to hold that high level there in Shanghai.

"I'm very happy to be in the final again", Nadal told the ATP's official website afterwards.

"It felt like the game was moving towards a more aggressive type of play but it shows [the] hard work he's put in, the fitness he's worked on, my goodness there's still a massive place for him".
