Wilson Players Travis Parrott and Carly Gullickson take 2009 US Open Mixed Doubles Title

Travis Parrot and Carly Gullickson teamed up to stun second seeded Paes and Black 6-2, 6-4 to take the 2009 US Open Mixed Doubles title.

Travis used his Wilson [K]Six-One 95 racket as partner Carly used her [K]Pro Open racket as they volleyed their way to the title in one hour and six minutes.

“I still can’t believe we actually won the US Open,” Gullickson said in her post-match press conference. “It’s weird to me.”

Gullickson and Parrott, who possess five doubles titles between them, saved two match points in their opener against Nadia Petrova and Max Mirnyi and then proceeded through the draw without dropping another set as they knocked off three more seeds, including number one seed Huber and Bhupathi in the semifinals.

Parrott and Gullickson only joined forces when Parrott’s first choice, Spears, pulled out. Parrott sent Gullickson a text, and she accepted his offer to play.

Needless to say, this Wilson team will pair up again.

Congratulations to Travis Parrott and Carly Gullickson!!
