MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Wild card entrants Jarmila Gajdosova and Matthew Ebden combined to win the Australian Open mixed doubles title with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Lucie Hradecka and Frantisek Cermak on Sunday.

The Australian pair ousted second-seeded Elena Vesnina and Leander Paes in the second round and fifth-seeded Nadia Petrova and Mahesh Bhupathi in the quarterfinals.

They had two service breaks in each set and dropped twice in the match.

``As Australians it's incredible to play here,'' Ebden said. ``We've had an incredible time the last couple of weeks and we'll see you next year.''
