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.

Kyrgios didn't make it onto the board in the second set until he was serving with Nadal already leading 5-0.

"The feeling is if he really wants to play and wants to work, he is one of the players that have more talent to achieve a lot of things in this sport", said Nadal, who will go immediately on next to the Shanghai Masters.

After getting his hands on the trophy in China, Nadal said: "I was playing very high intensity the whole match, changing the directions and not making many mistakes". "It's a typical type of week for me, beat a player well (Alexander Zverev in the semis), then pretty much no-show (in the final)". Garcia said afterwards, asked what was in her mind when she slumped to her knees. 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 objective in life. "She deserved to win today".

"For sure it definitely turned the second set", Garcia said.

Kyrgios fell short in his attempt to win his first title of the season. This is the second time she's won a career-best 11 straight matches.

Garcia saved a match point in her three-set quarterfinal victory over third-seeded Elina Svitolina of Ukraine.

In that 2014 fourth-round encounter at Wimbledon, the then 144th-ranked Kyrgios emerged a four-set victor. He grumbled, rolled his head in frustration and questioned chair umpire Mohammed Gilani in the final of the China Open. He won his first in his Beijing debut in 2005. "It's all I've been thinking about outside of tennis since then", he said, adding that he and his family were scoping out land in Melbourne and looking for organisations to partner with.

His opponent, world No. 1 Rafael Nadal, champion and consummate pro, powered to the finish unperturbed by the theatrics at the other end.
