The unseeded pair of Stosur and Zhang won their first Grand Slam doubles title together, beating defending champions and No. 2-seed Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic 6-3, 6-4 in the final.

The victory Friday was the 10th in a row for Stosur and Zhang. Their most recent loss was against Babos and Mladenovic at last year's US Open.

Stosur and Zhang overcame a slow start to wrest the Australian Open doubles crown from Babos and Mladenovic 6-3, 6-4, completing a dream fortnight for the unseeded pair.
