Nadal reaches China Open tennis final

Rafael Nadal has recovered from a second-set slump to defeat Grigor Dimitrov in three to reach the China Open ATP final in Beijing.


World No.1 Nadal won 6-3 4-6 6-1 on Saturday against the Bulgarian third seed, recording his ninth semi-final win without a loss in 2017.

The Spaniard stands at an ATP-leading 60-9 since January, hitting the 60 mark for the ninth time in his career after beating Dimitrov in two-and-a-quarter hours, breaking serve five times.

He will play his 110th career singles final when he faces German second seed Alexander Zverev or Nick Kyrgios.
