Grigor Dimitrov Beats Nick Kyrgios at Cincinatti Masters Final

(August 21, 2017 Sofia) Australia's Nick Kyrgios went down to seventh seed Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria (6-3, 7-5) at the Cincinnati Masters final on Sunday, unable to stand up to the shape which allowed him to beat Nadal in the quarter-finals.

"Looking back from where I was ... I would have never thought I would have had my first Masters 1000 event final," Kyrgios said. "So I'm pretty happy with the result. From where I was to here, it's just been amazing.

Kyrgios was no match for Dimitrov, who did not lose a set on the way to winning his first ATP Masters tournament. The 22-year-old Kyrgios, ranked 23 in the world, capitulated with three double faults in the second set at 5-5 to hand Bulgarian Dimitrov a decisive break.

Kyrgios had the first break point of the match at 2-2 in the first set, but sent a forehand wide to blow the chance. Dimitrov, however, took full advantage of his one break opportunity when Kyrgios netted a forehand to take a 4-2 lead.

Kyrgios showed his frustration by remonstrating with the chair umpire during the second set over line umpiring. He hit 15 aces to six but was weaker on serve throughout, winning only 36% of points on his second-serve in the second-set.
