Australia's Alicia Molik delighted the home crowd by winning her first Grand Slam title in the Australian Open on an emotional day for both her and beaten finalist Corina Morariu.

Molik teamed up with Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova to defeat American duo Lindsay Davenport and Morariu in straight sets in the women's doubles final in Melbourne.

Molik, defeated by Davenport in the quarter-finals of the singles, gained revenge with a 6-3 6-4 win on Rod Laver Arena.

Davenport and Morariu also lost the 2001 doubles final to the Williams sisters but that was put into perspective when Morariu was diagnosed with acute leukemia a few months later.

Both players were in tears at the presentation ceremony after Friday's final, Molik joking the women's tour should have made their recent sponsorship deal with Kleenex rather than Sony Ericsson.
