RAFAEL Nadal has defeated Nick Kyrgios in straight-sets to claim the China Open final.

It comes after Kyrgios lost his temper against umpire Mohamed Lahyani over a close line call.

“I can’t play at 100 percent if that stuff happens.. and then you expect me not to be angry,” Kyrgios told the umpire, who awarded a penalty point against him.

The 22-year-old remains in 15th place in the ATP race to the World Tour Finals in London next month.

Only the top 10 make it through to the event.
