Katarina Srebotnik and Daniel Nestor beat Paul Hanley and Chan Yung-jan 6-3 3-6 (10-7) to win the Australian Open mixed doubles title after a super tie breaker on Rod Laver Arena.

This was Nestor's second Australian Open mixed doubles title, he won it in 2007 with Elena Likhovtseva. The 38 year old has won six major men's doubles trophies.

"She played great [and] I played well, too," said Nestor. "That's some of the best mixed I played this week. I don't always play that well.


"In the first [set] we lost serve and then broke back. That was important to stay close there. I played a bad game to start the second, which kind of lost our momentum, but then we broke right back again. Then they played a pretty good game to break us to win the set.


"I think it was just trying to win more of the big points, which we did in the tie-breaker. But it was really tight. I mean, Hanley made some great crosses in the tie-breaker. He missed a couple volleys that he hit well by like an inch or two. It came down to one or two points. It was good tennis."

Srebotnik had won four major mixed doubles titles - the last two with Nenad Zimonjic - but it was her first at the Australian Open and a first with Nestor.

"She's already dumped me for the next grand slam to go back to her regular partner so this was my one chance and I'm glad I took it," joked Nestor.

"This is the one I never won, and I really wanted it, you know, badly to win so I can say I have three Grand Slam wins now," said Srebotnik. "Wimbledon is the only one missing. So, I mean, really, of course because of Daniel as well, because we play first slam together. So I wanted to make it good for him as well and not play badly. I didn't play so well in the second round. I was like pushing myself, C'mon, you know, because he's a great player. Yeah, I mean, was important, and I'm really happy, yeah."
