Second seed Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka brushed aside Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova to win the Australian Open 2021 women's doubles title on Friday. The Belgian-Belarusian combination proved too strong for the third-seeded Czech pair, winning 6-2, 6-3 on Rod Laver Arena after sealing the match on their fourth championship point. "It's been a tough couple of weeks so thank you to everyone involved. Glad to have fans back," said Mertens.
