Roger Federer followed up his return to the top of the ATP rankings with his third title of 2018 as he downed Milos Raonic in Stuttgart.
He will face Milos Raonic in the final on Sunday who had earlier beat defending champion Lucas Pouille.
Bidding for his 18th grass-court title, Federer was pushed all the way by the fourth-seeded Kyrgios, who had 23 aces.
The opening set was a tight affair without any breaks of serve, although Federer did earn two break points in the second and eighth games.
"The most important thing is going to be to focus on my game and if I can do my things well", Raonic told reporters after the match.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion had already secured his return to number one in the world rankings with victory over Nick Kyrgios in the semi-final. In a decisive tiebreak after no breaks in the second set, a double fault from Raonic paved the way for Federer, playing his first tournament in 11 weeks after giving the claycourt campaign a miss, to claim victory.
