Nick Kyrgios has claimed his third ATP singles title after beating David Goffin 4-6 6-3 7-5 in the Japan Open final.
Goffin spurned five break points in the game when he was 0-40, the Australian held with the help of three aces and broke in the next game.
He completed victory in two hours.
“It was physically pretty tough, we had a lot of long rallies,” said Kyrgios. “The way I returned today got me a lot of break points. If one of us had taken more of their break points it would have made it a lot easier for both of us. There was just a couple of points in it.”
