Kristina and Ellen win the Australian Open Pairs

by Pieter Harris on June 21, 2024

WA’s Kristina Krstic and Commonwealth Games Gold Medal partner Ellen Fife (NSW) have been crowned the Australian Open Women’s Pairs Champions.

Up against Tayla Bruce (NZ) & Jessie Cottell (NSW) in the final at Broadbeach today, Kristina and Ellen started strongly and pulled away in the middle stages to eventually run out winners 17-9.

It is a great reward for Kristina’s consistency at the Australian Open as she has come agonisingly close to a title a number of times over the past few years.

This year is WA player’s most successful assault on the Australian Open, after Laura Butler’s great display in the singles on Thursday and Calvin Rodgers second placing in the Vision Impaired Open Singles.
