By his own admission, Nick Kyrgios "crossed the line" in his post-match victory speech at the Australian Open on Saturday night.

Kyrgios was typically brash while addressing the crowd at Rod Laver Arena after teaming with Thanasi Kokkinakis to win the doubles title.

The 'Special Ks' defeated fellow Aussies Matt Ebden and Max Purcell 7-5 6-4 in Saturday night's final, becoming the first Australian men to win the title since Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge in 1997.

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis were in a jubilant mood after the match, and Kyrgios got very cheeky in his victory speech.

“I know this big boy is going to be out tonight so ladies, let’s go," Kyrgios said about Kokkinakis.

“I’ve got to stop now, I’ve crossed the line," he added after laughter from the crowd.

The love between Australia's newest doubles champions was clear for all to see.

“Nick, I love you, brother,” Kokkinakis said.

“Man, I can honestly say we did not expect to even come close to this but with the help of you guys all week it has been unbelievable.

"The coverage it got and the support it got, the coverage, we couldn’t ask for anything more.

“Thanks to my team. It has been a rough couple of years for me personally the last few years but what a month we have had.

“I couldn’t ask for anything more. Come to the Australian Open, I was already happy and this was a crazy cherry on top. So thanks for all the work. Thank you.”

Kyrgios added: “This week has been a dream come true for me. I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else.

“I’m just super happy. I don’t even know how we are doing this or what is going on right now to be brutally honest.

“My team. I wouldn’t be here without you guys. My beautiful girlfriend, she looked after me as well.”

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis cap off incredible campaign

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis' abrasive ways ultimately proved successful as they rode a wave of raucous support and knocked off seeded opponents in four of their five matches - including the first, third and sixth seeds - on their path to the final.

The atmosphere in the decider was far more friendly than the 'Special Ks' had become accustomed to over the preceding fortnight.

And there was little of the controversy that has followed them throughout tournament.

Down 3-5 and 0-15 in the second set, Purcell approached the chair umpire to complain about sections of the crowd calling out during his service motion.

Kyrgios called for the offenders to be removed, which they were by security guards.

"Get the f*** out," he could be heard yelling.

The brief halt to proceedings was a minor speedbump for Kyrgios and Kokkinakis as they waited until the next game to claim the championship on serve.
