Disgruntled Nick Kyrgios was hit with a penalty point and said he got "destroyed" as world number one Rafael Nadal cruised to his sixth title of another remarkable year.

"If my vision is realised, it's my hope that I'll be remembered for this more than anything I have done or will do on the tennis court", he added. Muguruza retired during her opening match on Monday because of a cold.

Ostapenko entered the semifinal without the loss of a set during the week.

The tearful Romanian said she had fulfilled a dream courtesy of her defeat of Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko 6-2, 6-4 and will play France's on-form Caroline Garcia in Sunday's China Open final. He won his first in his Beijing debut in 2005.

Halep's best opportunity to rebound against Garcia ended when she failed to make good on any of the nine break points she had at 3-3 in the second set. It's tough to find positives when you won (just) three games in the final. Halep achieved the women's world #1 ranking with the victory. "If I lose, it will allow me to know what was my game lacking, what I need to improve on to beat guys like him".

The Spaniard remains unbeaten since he became world number one in August and put in a ruthless display on his way to his 75th career title.
