MELBOURNE, Australia - Nick Kyrgios won an all-Aussie final to capture the boys singles title at the Australian Open on Saturday, while 15-year-old Ana Konjuh of Croatia took home the girls singles and doubles championships.

The 17-year-old Kyrgios beat his friend and doubles partner, 16-year-old Thanasi Kokkinakis, 7-6 (4), 6-3 on Australia Day, the national holiday.

It was the first all-Australian boys final at Melbourne Park since Ben Ellwood defeated Andrew Ilie in 1994.

Konjuh, who had former French Open champion and Croatia Fed Cup captain Iva Majoli supporting her from the stands at Rod Laver Arena, defeated 16-year-old Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-4.
