Samantha Stosur and Matthew Ebden couldn’t match “flawless” sixth seeds Barbora Krejcikova and Rajeev Ram in the mixed doubles final on Saturday night as the Czech/US pairing won in straight sets.
Krejcikova and Ram won the final 6-1, 6-4 to claim their second Australian Open together after winning in 2019.
After the match, Ram paid tribute to Krejcikova, who had won the mixed doubles with Nikola Mektic in 2020, making this year’s title her third straight title at Melbourne Park.
Stosur thanked Ebden and also Tennis Australia chief executive Craig Tiley for giving the pair a wildcard into the event. Stosur said they hoped to play together again in the future.
