The US-Australian pairing where the stronger ones in the opening set and they broke Santamaria in the fourth game to lead 3-1.
Kyrgios served next and along with Venus, or V as he called her, they consolidated the break.
The first set would go to V and Nick 6-3.
In the second set it was Venus that was broken to give Krajicek and Santamaria the edge they needed.
The third set saw Krajicek get the early break only to see their opponents break back immediately for 2-2.
Games then went with serve until in the 12th game when Santamaria was broken to hand the match to her opponents.
It was an entertaining match, one enjoyed by the large crowd that looked on.
