It also means he has yet to surpass Virginia Wade’s Open era record of seven grand slams won by a British player, a record he currently shares with her.

Krejcikova and Mektic proved too strong for the reigning US Open champions in the tiebreak, by first recovering from going a set behind and the winning eight straight points in the deciding tie break on their way to victory on Rod Laver Arena.

“The first time Beth’s been lost for words,” Murray said on court after the match.

“Congrats to Nikola and Barbora – you we guys were awesome. We fought as hard as we can but came up short, so congrats on a Grand Slam title each.”

“Congrats to all you staying around after a singles match. It was a good, fun atmosphere to play.

“Beth, thanks for being a great partner, we have had a lot of success but more importantly a lot of fun. We’ll try and come back next year and get a win.”

Czech Krejcikova successfully defended her title after winning the event with American Rajeev Ram last year, while Croatia’s Mektic captured his maiden Grand Slam trophy.

Britain still has an interest with Joe Salisbury partnering Ram, the 11th seed, for the men’s doubles title against the wild cards Max Purcell and Luke Saville on Sunday, after the men’s singles title match.
