The all-Australian final of the Australian Open men’s doubles was won by the duo Kyrgios-Kokkinakis in straight sets (7-5, 6-4). The fratricidal duel of the men’s doubles final of the Australian Open smiled on the pair formed by Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis. The two friends, opposed to their compatriots Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell, won in just over 90 minutes of play and two sets (7-5, 6-4).
A rather logical result since the winners simply did not concede any break point during the meeting, against 6 for their opponents. The course of the Kyrgios-Kokkinakis duo has been exemplary, dismissing seeded n°1, n°2 and n°6 over the laps. read also The men’s doubles draw at the Australian Open True to their game, the two men were patient before breaking at 6-5 in the first set. They then logically dominated the second set by relying on their strengths: Kyrgios’ serve and Kokkinakis’ forehand. Impeccable, the latter even offered the two players a match point at 5-3. Finally, the two friends had to wait to serve to win the match. For the Australian pair, the emotion was immense since it was their first doubles title at the Australian Open. The final was however marked by a minor incident. In the second set at 5-3, a man was led out of the Rod Laver Arena by stadium security guards after screaming during a serve from Purcell. An event quickly erased after the loud applause that descended from the stands at the end of the meeting. The public, who had remained numerous after the coronation of Ashleigh Barty a few moments earlier, was very happy, adorned with national flags, yellow t-shirts flocked with the name of the Australian and small stuffed animals of kangaroos. read also All the news from the Australian Open
