The married couple, Alja Rosolska and Jean-Julien Roger, ranked seventh. In the first round, Australian duo Madison Inglis and Jason Kubler, who received a wild card from the organizers, were drawn. The Poles and the Dutch were the favourites, but the hosts’ tennis players would still play.
There was no shortage of feelings in the first group. Inglis and Kubler had the breakout advantage three times, but each time they quickly lost it. They also missed five set pieces, so the tiebreaker was crucial. In this match, both pairs had their chances, but it was the Australians who finally took advantage in the ninth set.
This failure was soon forgotten by Rosolska and Roger. In the second set, they dominated their opponents and tried to get three breaks. From 0: 1 they won six matches in a row and confidently closed the group. Thanks to this, they tied the competition at 1 and led to a super tiebreaker.

The decisive match was tense and tense. In the end, Rosolska and Rojer jumped out to an 8-5 lead and looked to be on their way to victory. They even had two match balls, but the home team defended. After changing teams, they worked on the game, and Inglis’ impressive comeback ended the game.
The Australians eventually won 7-6 (8), 1-6, 11-9 and thanks to this they will play in the 1/8 finals of the mixed doubles tournament. For Rosolska, this is the end of this year’s tournament in Melbourne. Previously, Irene Rotliff of Warsaw and New Zealand had competed in doubles without success.
