Nick Kyrgios has reached the final of the Cincinnati Masters after beating David Ferrer in a tight straight set semi-final.

The Aussie star faced a tough contest to beat the Spanish world number 31, with both players holding their serve resulting in both the first and second set leading to a tie-break.

Kyrgios put his strong serve on show during the match, serving 14 aces in the dazzling style that has seen the young Australian soar to world number 23.

The 22-year-old's win comes just one day after he beat soon-to-be world number one Rafael Nadal in straight sets in the quarter final on Saturday.

Despite suffering hip and shoulder injuries over the past few months, Kyrgios will now meet world number eight, Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, in the final.
