Rafael Nadal has been in a rampant mood in Beijing. The world number one fresh off his win in New York travelled a few thousand miles and has been in an unforgiving mood ever since giving nothing away and it is great to see him at these heights.
Today the Spaniard secured his 6th title of the year with the routine win against a frustrated Nick Kyrgios in a dominative performance picking up his 75th career title.
I watched Rafa play against Dimitrov in the morning on Saturday and it’s not often you turn away from a match and say well played to the loser but Dimitrov didn’t play badly but the defence shown by the world number one and the brilliance at producing these stunning shots was out of this world.
This just magnifies the year Rafa has had and the race is on for number one. Next week the tour tilts to Shanghai and following that Paris before arriving in London for the finale.
