Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis have claimed their second doubles title at the Atlanta Open today.

The second-seeded duo combined superbly to score a 7-6(4) 7-5 victory against Jason Kubler and John Peers in the all-Australian men’s doubles final at the tournament.

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis clinched their second tour-level title as a team in 94 minutes. They fired 15 aces and saved all four break points they faced in the championship match.

This success comes after Kyrgios and Kokkinakis teamed up earlier this year to win a fairytale Australian Open crown.

The Atlanta double champions will now go their separate ways before the US Open begins in late August. 

Kyrgios is heading to Washington to play in the Citi Open and will also be teaming up with American Jack Sock in the men’s doubles.

Kokkinakis, meanwhile, is bound for Mexico where he’ll play in the Los Cabos Open singles as the tournament’s seventh-seed. 

The duo are expected to unite to play men’s doubles at the US Open with a third title together now in their sights.
