MELBOURNE, VIC — Filip Polasek and Ivan Dodig have won the men’s doubles title at the Australian Open with a 6-3, 6-4 win over 2020 champions Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury.
Ram, a 36-year-old from Carmel, spent two weeks in hard quarantine after arriving in Australia last month.
He was attempting a "doubles" double at Melbourne Park after winning the mixed doubles title with Barbora Krejcikova on Saturday night.
In the Men's Final, Ram saved a championship point while serving in the ninth game and held, but Polasek sealed the title in the next game.
The 35-year-old Polasek dedicated the victory to his newly-born baby daughter.
