Kyrgios, the world number 19, who never shies away from a challenge has said he is excited about facing Nadal, who according to him, will eye revenge on Sunday.

The Spaniard dropped his first set of the tournament to Lucas Pouille but eventually came through to win 4-6, 7-6, 7-5.

The world number one was a 6-3 4-6 6-1 victor as he booked his place in a 110th career final. We're 2-2 and he's going to want some revenge from the last time we played.

"The key was definitely to be aggressive and try to dominate the rallies - my serve was really an important thing because she's a very good returner".

Kyrgios was incensed in the opening game when a line call went against him on break point.
