Mate Pavic and Gabriela Dabrowski won the Australian Open mixed doubles final after beating Rohan Bopanna and her Hungarian partner 2-6, 6-4, 11-9.

The Canadian-Croat pair made a strong comeback after conceding the first set, with Pavic adding the mixed doubles title to the men's doubles title he won with Oliver Marach at the Australian Open on Saturday.

However, Bopanna missed the chance of bagging his second Grand Slam title after a consistent show at the Open this year.
