Strasbourg, France, 22 May 2022 | Leigh Rogers

Australian Daria Saville has won the Strasbourg doubles crown alongside American partner Nicole Melichar-Martinez.

The first-time pairing claimed the WTA 250 title with a hard-fought 5-7 7-5 [10-6] victory against top seeds Czech Lucie Hradecka and Indian Sania Mirza in a one-hour and 55-minute championship match.

It is 28-year-old Saville’s third career WTA doubles title – and first since combining with fellow Aussie Ellen Perez to win the Strasbourg title three years earlier.

Saville now turns her attention to Roland Garros, where she is playing only singles.

World No.29 Melichar-Martinez will partner another Australian in Paris, teaming up with Perez.
