Two tournaments together, two titles together

In their second joint appearance, Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic have reached their second title (the first was in Antalya in mid-January). Their eighth consecutive victory in 2021 was achieved in the Murray River Open final against the French duo Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin – 7:6 (2), 6:3.

Nikola and Mate took the first set with a convincing edition in a tie-break, while in the second, they reached two breaks (in the first and ninth games), and they lost only two points on their serve.

This is Mate Pavic’s 41st doubles final of his career and the 19th title, while Nikola Mektic played his 18th final and won the ninth title.

This fantastic result is an excellent lead-in to the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, where the Croatian duo is the second-seed of the tournament. 

The 2021 Murray River Open is played on outdoor hard courts in Melbourne, Australia. It was organized as a lead-up tournament to the 2021 Australian Open and is held at the same venue.
