Troubled Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios says he has finally found a objective in life and will build a facility for disadvantaged kids after being struck by the death of a young boy from cancer.

In a column for PlayersVoice, Kyrgios has written that a project he has been working on has inspired him in recent weeks.

"It is true that the calendar is tough, but at the same time it is true that Federer has 36 years, I think, I have 31, Novak 30, Andy 30, Nishikori, I don't know, 27".

'Look at what happened in Vegas a couple days ago.

"People will have their own opinions on how the final went down but, for the most part, I was satisfied with the week and happy to qualify for my second final of 2017". When I'm not playing, training or traveling, I'm working on this. We are now in the process of scoping out land in Melbourne and looking for organisations and businesses to partner with us. Really, we're going to talk about it?' "So, what have I been doing it for?"

The 23-year-old, who is set to rise from number 15 to nine in the world, sank to her knees in relief on the hard court when she finally sealed victory in the second-set tie break.

"If my vision is realised, it's my hope that I'll be remembered for this more than anything I have done or will do on the tennis court".

"I'm going to be hands-on whenever I'm home".

"I'll run tennis camps, shoot hoops, cook, clean up ... whatever is needed".

He's had a great year and is one of the best players in the world right now.

Rafael Nadal got some fiber from a tennis ball lodged in his eye but that did not stop the world No. 1 setting up a China Open semifinal Saturday with "great guy" Grigor Dimitrov.

After dodging two match points against Lucas Pouille in the first round of the China Open, Nadal displayed devastating form (arguably his best off clay since the 2014 Australian Open) the rest of the week, culminating with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Nick Kyrgios in the final.
