Peers and Kontinen seal first major title

28 January 2017

Aussie and Finnish pair combine to take out Australian Open doubles title.

John Peers is the first Australian man to lift a Grand Slam men’s doubles title since 2005, after teaming with Henri Kontinen to fend off the challenge of the Bryan Brothers 7-5 7-5 in the final of the Australian Open on Saturday night.

“It is an amazing feeling. I was looking through some of the names on the trophy. To be alongside some of the guys and idols I looked up to in the past is something that hasn't sunk in yet.

“To be able to do that and be a part of what Australian legacy has been with tennis is something I was dreaming of as a child,” declared Peers, who was the first Australian to reach the Melbourne Park men’s doubles final since Todd Woodbridge won here in 2001 with Jonas Bjorkman.

“It's a humbling sort of experience and something that I'll never take for granted.”

In their post-match speech, the Bryans acknowledged their opponents had been “red-hot”, and they were right.

The fourth seeds, who defeated the American twins en route to the Paris Masters and ATP World Tour Finals at the back end of 2016, struck 22 winners to steal the first set just before a tiebreak was required with some alert net play.

The Bryans were aiming to add to their six titles at Melbourne Park to draw level with John Newcombe’s record of 17 doubles majors, but Kontinen/Peers pounced once again at 6-5 to clinch their first Grand Slam title as a pairing with a sumptuous lob onto the baseline from the Australian.

“That was definitely one of the greatest shots I’ve hit, and to do it on our second match point was really good,” Peers said.

“I was lucky enough to pull it off – feels really nice.”

A host of Finnish supporters made it into Rod Laver Arena to cheer on Kontinen too, the first male or female from his country to even contest a Grand Slam final.

The 26-year-old is delighted to keep their unbeaten record against the Bryan brothers intact.

“We’ve been playing well for a while, and we know we’re tough to beat. But you know their history, how many Slam finals they played and won,” Kontinen said.

“They're always going to be a tough team to beat. To do it now three times in a row is great for us. We know next time we play them, it's going to be a battle again.”

The Kontinen/Peers duo strive to keep on improving and hope to add more trophies to their cabinet in 2017 after a perfect start.

“Obviously this already puts us in there going towards London, end of the year (ATP Finals). But we'll do the same thing as we did last year. We're going to have bad weeks, unfortunately. But everybody does, bad matches,” reflected Kontinen.

“We're just going to do the same thing, stay positive, try to improve individually and as a team. We'll see how the year ends.”

Re: Henri Kontinen

yeah i like peers. draganja is injured i believe, hasnt played for many months

would be great, but he would have to perform amazingly better in the slams, where he usually gets the worse results

as of now, they are into aus open r2, which is already winning points because iirc, he lost in r1 last year...let´s hope he can have a good run this time!

Peers as a partner will help him get into big tournaments and get a seeding. Hope they take advantage, if they do well Henkka could conceivably get a top10-ranking in doubles and then he and Jarkko will play in the Olympics
