Katarina Srebotnik and Daniel Nestor have won the Australian Open mixed doubles title, beating Paul Hanley and Chan Yung-jan.

The Canadian-Slovenian partnership teamed up to dash home hopes of at least one local champion on Sunday.

Srebotnik and Nestor edged Australia's Paul Hanley and Chan Yung-jan of Taiwan 6-3 3-6 (10-7) after a super tie breaker on Rod Laver Arena.

Srebotnik had won four previous grand slam mixed doubles titles - the last two with Nenad Zimonjic - but it was her first at Melbourne Park and a first with Nestor.

"She's already dumped me for the next grand slam to go back to her regular partner so this was my one chance and I'm glad I took it," joked Nestor, who won the title here in 2007 with Elena Likhovtseva.
