Rafael Nadal loses in quarter-final Bert against Nick Kyrgios.


Nick Kyrgios had it easy against top-seeded Rafael Nadal as the Spainard was dazzled in a 6-2 7-5 victory on Friday at the Cincinnati Open.

In a highly-anticipated quarter-final matchup, Australian Kyrgios breezed past the 15-times grand slam champion Nadal in about one hour and 20 minutes.

Despite the defeat, the 31-year-old Nadal will for the fourth time in his career be the world number one when the ATP rankings come out next week.
The 22-year-old Kyrgios recorded 10 aces in a strong serving display and moved to the semifinal to face David Ferrer, who produced another shocking result in dominating third-seed Dominic Thiem 6-3 6-3.
