Nadal will play Querrey for the Mexican Open title

The Australian number one defeated Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals in straight sets, despite falling a set down, Querrey subsequently recovered to defeat Kyrgios, 3-6, 6-1, 7-5 to reach his 16th career final, and like Nadal, he is aiming for his first ATP 500 title on hardcourts since 2010.

Rafael Nadal will face Sam Querrey in the final of the ATP Mexico Open after thrashing Marin Cilic in Friday's semi-final. He won the event in 2005 and 2013, when it was played on clay.

Live streaming: The matches can be watched online on Tennis Channel Live, StarHub Go. Nadal has a 4-0 career record against the 29-year-old Querry, who reached the semi-finals in the Mexican Open last year.

"He played very well, nearly reaching perfection", Nadal said. I'm also very happy with my week and my game. My forehand and backhand were great and my serve bailed me out of trouble when I needed it. Sam is playing great.

"He played very well, nearly reaching perfection", said Nadal, who was denied his first hard-court singles title since Doha in 2014. He had already eliminated three seeded players in the previous rounds (Goffin, Thiem and Kyrgios), and Rafa was going to strengthen his bid for the title.

Nadal has not fared well in recent years on hard courts. "I knew that if I just waited and waited, eventually I'd get my chance", Kyrgios concluded. "My serve is the best part of my game, and I had one of my best serving matches tonight".
