Gullickson and Parrott win U.S. Open mixed doubles championship

The unseeded American team of Carly Gullickson and Travis Parrott won the 2009 U.S. Open mixed doubles championship today. To get the trophy, Gullickson (who was a last-minute substitute for Abigail Spears) and Parrott took out almost all the big names in mixed doubles. In fact, they defeated an entire gallery of doubles and mixed doubles champions:

Number 6 seeds Nadia Petrova & Max Mirnyi
Sania Mirza & Daniel Nestor
Number 3 seeds Lisa Raymond & Marcin Matkowski
Number 1 seeds Liezel Huber & Mahesh Bhupati
Number 2 seeds Cara Black & Leander Paes

Gullickson and Parrott defeated Black and Paes 6-2, 6-4.
