Melbourne, Australia (AP)—Daniel Nestor of Canada and Kristina Mladenovic of France combined to win the Australian Open mixed doubles title with a 6-3, 6-2 win Sunday over sixth-seeded Sania Mirza of India and Horia Tecau of Romania.

Nestor and Mladenovic, who won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title last year, fended off all five break points they faced and broke the Mirza-Tecau combination four times in the 58-minute match.

''Kiki, she's the best mixed doubles player. She really helps me out on court,'' the 41-year-old Nestor said. ''I actually have to cover less of the court, which is perfect for me, because I'm so old. ''

Nestor has won all four majors in men's doubles. This was his second Australian Open mixed doubles title his victory at Melbourne Park in 2007.
