Chau Hei Reginald Lee and Hoi Whau Chau won the finals in three games

In a thrilling final, the Hong Kong mixed doubles pair of Chun Hei Reginald Lee and Hoi Whau Chau clinched the mixed doubles at the 2015 Australian Open by defeating the Chinese pair of Cheng Liu and Yixin Bao 19-21 21-19 15-21 in an hour and 4 minutes.

The first game saw a thrilling tussle between both pairs but once again,  as is the case with most close games, those who win the decisive points, eventually end up coming out trumps and it was the Hong Kong pair who converted their lone game point opportunity to take the opening game 21-19.

The second game proved to be yet another gripping affair between both sides but it was the turn of the Chinese this time to pull one back in their favour, as they managed to convert their solitary game point opportunity and take the game 21-19 to take the match into a decider.

The decider saw the Hong Kong pair raise their game and courtesy of a regular surge in points at consistent intervals, they clinched the third game 21015 to win the match and clinch the title.
