The Frenchwoman will make her top-10 debut when the new rankings come out on Monday.

The French and US Open champion made it 11 victories in a row as he beat Grigor Dimitrov and he's now 8/15 with Sky Bet to lift the trophy.

Controversial tennis star Nick Kyrgios is adamant he has found his objective in the wake of his straight sets loss to Rafael Nadal in the China Open final. A great classic for Kyrgios, what...

Kyrgios has revealed his desire to build a facility for disadvantaged and underprivileged kids after he crumbled in the China Open final to fall 6-2, 6-1 in Beijing.

"I was lucky the first day saving the two match points but after that I think I played one of my best events of the year".

"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.

"She played wonderful tennis", Halep said of Garcia.

Jared Donaldson will be the first opponent for the 31-year-old after he beat Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.


The 23-year-old, who is set to rise from number 15 to nine in the world, sank to her knees on the hard court when she finally sealed victory in the second-set tie break.

And he is moments away now - Halep has taken the second set and a win over the No 8 seed to book her place in the final.

"It was such an incredible two weeks", Garcia said.

"For sure it definitely turned the second set", Garcia said. Garcia fell to her knees in celebration.

The last time Kyrgios played a No. 1 it was also against Nadal.

Nadal leads Kyrgios 3-2 in career meetings, and 2-1 this season.

Afterwards, the 16-time Grand Slam victor, who added the French Open and US Open to his tally in 2017, said: "In 2005 when I won here I never thought that in 2017 I would still be playing tennis!"
