Australian firebrand Nick Kyrgios will take on Belgium's David Goffin at the Japan Open final after both men stomped on more experienced opponents in their semifinals Saturday.Sixth seed Kyrgios overpowered French second seed Gael Monfils with a succession of fiery forehand shots that only intensified in the second set, taking him to a 6-4, 6-4 win.The final will be the first tour-level encounter between the two men, with Goffin vowing to make Kyrgios work hard.Cilic tried various strategies to unnerve Goffin, but he remained unswayed.Defending champion and U.S. Open winner Stan Wawrinka withdrew from the Tokyo event due to back trouble, while home favorite Kei Nishikori, winner in 2014 and 2012, was unable to finish his second-round match Wednesday because of muscle strain.
