Nick Kyrgios of Australia is seen with the trophy after winning the men's Final against Ryan Harrison of the US at the Brisbane International Tennis Tournament in Brisbane, Sunday, January 7, 2018.

Kyrgios wrapped up the first set in 37 minutes despite having to save five break-points.

However 25-year-old Harrison showed his experience to book a showdown with third seed Nick Kyrgios, scuppering the organisers' dream of an all-Australian Brisbane final.

Harrison was broken while trying to serve out the match at 5-2 but recovered and held to love to reach only his third ATP Tour final, all of which have come since February past year.

Nick Kyrgios is showing great promise thrilling the crowd at Pat Rafter Arena on Sunday night with a win against American Ryan Harrison to take out the men's title at Brisbane International.

And steady on Kyrgios did, at one point winning 22 consecutive points on service.

"I know that he's a risky opponent".

'Home and Away' Actress Jess Falkholt Passes Away
On Wednesday they were farewelled at a moving funeral ceremony at St Mary's Catholic Church at Concord in Sydney's west. Heartbreaking news tonight as we hear that Australian actress, Jessica Falkholt's life support has been switched off.


The triumph, the fourth of his young career, lifts Kyrgios four spots to No.17 in the world ahead of this month's Australian Open.

"I've got fond memories of Brisbane, played Davis Cup here and had a massive win over the U.S.", Kyrgios said. I'm never going to play 25 tournament-plus (in a year) - it's about picking the right tournaments and be invested in the ones I pick.

The American found a way to edge the Australian after being on the brink of losing the match in straight sets 4-6 7-6 (5) 6-4.

There was no shortage of emotions for Alex de Minaur after the Australian wildcard's giant killing run finally came to an end in the Brisbane International semi-finals on Saturday.

Last year Kyrgios was 0-2 in finals, finishing runner-up at the Western & Southern Open (l.to Grigor Dimitrov) in Cincinnati and at the China Open (l.to Rafael Nadal).

"He's obviously very motivated and very comfortable", Harrison said. De Minaur managed to get one break and to reduce the deficit to 5-4 - before Harrison served out for the match in the 10th game.
