Ebene News – AU – Mertens-Sabalenka wins Australian Open women’s doubles title

Second seed Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka swept aside Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova to clinch their first doubles crown at the Australian Open on Friday

The Belgo-Belarusian combination proved too strong for the third-seeded Czech duo, winning 6-2, 6-3 over Rod Laver Arena after sealing the game at their fourth league point

“It’s been a tough two weeks so thank you to everyone involved. Happy to have the fans back,” Mertens said

This was their second Grand Slam success as a team after the 2019 US Open and their sixth overall title as they both rebounded from fourth round singles losses at Melbourne Park

They made their debut together at the 2019 Australian Open and have since established themselves as one of the best teams on the tour, along with two-time Grand Slam winners Krejcikova and Siniakova
