Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova won the Australian Open doubles title.

Australia - Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova won the Australian Opendoubles title on Friday evening, which wasn't just the first time either player has won a Grand Slam doubles title, but it was the first time since 2007 that a first-time pairing went all the way at a major.

Friday's final was an incredibly close affair, but it was Mattek-Sands and Safarova's gutsy plays on the biggest of points that sealed the victory for them. Safarova ripped a huge backhand down the line winner on set point in the first set and, after a see-saw second set - first they were up 2-0, then they lost five of the next six games to trail 5-3 before coming back to push it to a tie-break - it was Mattek-Sands' turn to step up on match point, ripping her own huge backhand down the line winner.

In the end, Mattek-Sands and Safarova edged No.14 seeds Chan Yung-Jan and Zheng Jie, 6-4, 7-6(5).
