Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka have won the Australian Open women’s doubles final to collect a second Grand Slam title as a team.

Mertens of Belgium and Sabalenka of Belarus had a 6-2, 6-3 win over the third-seeded Czech team of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova.

Second-seeded Sabalenka and Mertens wasted three championship points in an eight minute-plus last game. Sabalenka earned a fourth championship point with an ace and clinched the title when Siniakova sent a backhand wide.

Sabalenka is a Top 10 player and is increasingly focusing on singles events.

Krejcikova and Siniakova won the Wimbledon and French Open titles in 2018. Krejcikova has another chance at a title in Australia after securing a spot in the mixed doubles final.
