Krejcikova and Mektic claim the title of mixed doubles at the Australian Open

MELBOURNE: Fifth Seed Barbora Krejcikova & Nikola Mektic completed a remarkable victory back over the Americans Bethanie Mattek-Sands & Briton Jamie Murray to ensure the title of mixed doubles in the Australian Open on Saturday.

Krejcikova & Mektic proved too strong for the reigning US Open champions in the tiebreak, winning eight straight points on their way to a 5-7, 6-4, (10-1) victory on Rod Laver Arena.

Czech Krejcikova successfully defended her title after winning the event with American Rajeev Ram last year, while Croatia's Mektic captured her first Grand Slam trophy.
