Indian veteran Tennis star Rohan Bopanna and his Australian doubles partner Matthew Ebden created history on Saturday when they clinched their maiden Australian Open title.

The Indo-Australian duo won the title by beating Italy’s Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori in straight sets 7-6, 7-5.

Bopanna became the oldest-ever man to win a maiden Grand Slam title.

The Australian Open court witnessed another chivalrous performance earlier in the day when Aryna Sabalenka defended her title in style by beating China’s Zheng Qinwen.

Sabalenka capped her sparkling form at Melbourne Park with a convincing 6-3, 6-2 victory in 76 minutes.
