Nick Kyrgios In Cincinatti Masters Final After Beating David Ferrer

After a quick turnaround, she needed only 67 minutes to beat a rested Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-4 for a sweep into the semis.

"I was just doing it for a gag", Kyrgios said. "It was tough. I can't really talk about it too much".

Nadal got only halfway there.

Kyrgios raced to a 4-0 lead thanks to a double-break in the first set, rattling victor after winner past Nadal. And then I played a awful game.

Nadal will return to world No.1 next week after nine years away from the top spot, the longest gap in ATP rankings history. "For me, it's an unbelievable achievement".

There was one last nice moment left for Kyrgios, as instead of the now traditional autograph on the court-side camera, he wrote "Barcelona" with a loveheart, in solidarity with the victims of Thursday's Las Ramblas attack.

"It is a tragedy, the feeling that you are not safe nowhere". I mean, there are some times when I didn't, but all in all, I think I just gotta keep that up. I've very, very sorry about what happened, to all the victims, all the families, friends.

NICK Kyrgios has charged into his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 final, eclipsing Spanish veteran David Ferrer. At age 35, Ferrer is the second-oldest semifinalist in Cincinnati during the Open Era behind Ken Rosewall in 1970.

For the first time since 2012 Paris Masters, no member of the Big Four - Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic - are in the semi-final of a Masters 1000 tournament.

Getty Kyrgios will take on Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in the final of the Cincinnati Masters.

"I started the match very low and I played a very bad game in the second set when he break me", Nadal said. He closed it out with a 136 miles per hour ace, one of his 25 in the match.

Truth be told, Kyrgios said, Ferrer was a hard match-up for him.

"Hopefully (Sunday) is going to be one of those days that I can, again, produce good tennis".

Kyrgios charged out of the blocks in the first set and never lost pace during the 6-2 7-5 victory.

"I think it was one of the best matches of the year", Muguruza said.

"He was a nightmare to play, especially because I'm a tall guy and he's not the tallest guy", he said. And of course in a match like that, separated by a few points here or there, that was the case.

Also reaching the quarter-finals was Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza. "I recover well, so definitely I will be ready for tomorrow".

The Canberran last played Dimitrov in 2015, Dimitrov winning 7-6, 3-6, 7-6. "There are other things that are more important to me than tennis", Kyrgios said.
