Salisbury has won two doubles events at Grand Slams, winning the men's doubles at the 2020 Australian Open with Rajeev Ram, before teaming up with Krawczyk to lift the French Open mixed doubles title earlier this year.

Dart, who lost a Wimbledon mixed doubles semi-final with Jay Clarke in 2018, will be playing in her first slam final.

Dart and Salisbury gained the crucial break of serve in the 10th game of the third set to eliminate the ninth seeds.
