MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Daniela Hantuchova and Kevin Ullyett each won their second Grand Slam title, beating Gaston Etlis and Paolo Suarez 6-3, 6-2 for the Australian Open mixed doubles championship Sunday.

Hantuchova added the Australian title to the Wimbledon mixed doubles championship she won with Leos Friedl last year. Hantuchova is 10-0 in Grand Slam mixed doubles matches.

``This is beyond my expectations. I've been in two mixed doubles (championships) and I haven't lost yet,'' Hantuchova said.

Hantuchova and Spaniard Arantxa Sanchez Vicario lost the women's doubles championship to Martina Hingis and Anna Kournikova on Friday.

``I'm really happy because I was in the final of the doubles and missed that -- I really wanted to take home one title,'' she said. ``It was excellent the way we played today, we were really aggressive.''

Ullyett teamed with Wayne Black to win the U.S. Open men's doubles title last September.
