In the doubles category, the formidable pair of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova emerged victorious, defeating Shuko Aoyama and Ena Shibahara with a commanding 6-4, 6-3 scoreline. This triumph not only secured their second Australian Open title but also marked their seventh major overall, underscoring the pair’s consistent excellence on the grand stage.
