Cindy, your new signature is way too big. Here's an article about Travis Parrott...

Story last updated at 9:47 PM on July 14, 2005

Magill: Parrott making noise in the pros

On Thursday morning, I was reading on the Internet the latest U.S. pro doubles rankings and was pleased to see former Georgia standout Travis Parrott listed at No. 3, behind Stanford's Bryan twins, Bob and Mike, co-ranked at No. 1.

And guess who should drop by to say hello at my office?

None other than Travis Parrott.

"I'll be damned!" I exclaimed. "I was just reading about you, Travis. What brings you back to Athens? I thought you'd be playing at a tournament somewhere."

He replied: "I will be in an ATP tournament in Indianapolis Monday, but I'm in Athens for a family reunion with my brother Christopher and his bride of a few days."

Christopher is the oldest of tennis entrepreneur Brian Parrott's four sons. He's a graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y., and now a professional artist with a studio in Athens.

Christopher's younger brothers (Jeremy, Michael and Travis) all graduated from Georgia. Travis starred in tennis, Jeremy and Michael in golf. In fact, Travis and Jeremy both played on NCAA championship teams in 1999.

Travis, who won the NCAA doubles title with Matias Boeker in 1999, is now making a name for himself on the ATP doubles circuit.

He turned professional in the summer of 2002, starting out in USTA Futures doubles tournaments. Late in the summer, he won his first ATP title (with partner Jan-Michael Gambill) at the Mercedes-Benz Cup in Los Angeles. (they actually won that title in 2003, not 2002)

In 2004, he reached the finals of the big Legg-Mason tournament in Washington, playing with Russian Dimitri Tursunov. In the semifinals, they upset Rick Leach and Brian MacPhee.

He also reached the Wimbledon third round playing with Vince Spadea, and the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open with South African Robbie Koenig.

This year has been his best.

He reached the Australian Open third round with Aussie Ashley Fisher. He also won a tournament in Miami with former NCAA doubles champion Graydon Oliver (Illinois), upsetting Mardy Fish and James Blake in the process. And just last week in the International Hall of Fame tourney in Newport, R.I., he and Oliver lost in the finals to Jordan Kerr of Australia and former Stanford star Jim Thomas 7-6, 7-6.

The Bryan twins currently are a fixture as the U.S. Davis Cup team's doubles tandem, but captain Patrick McEnroe has informed Travis that he may be picked as a practice player with the U.S. team - a major honor.

Travis' father Brian (former doubles partner of U.S. Davis Cup star and captain Tom Gorman at Seattle University) taught him to play at an early age.

His late grandfather was the famous Harold Parrott, sports editor of the Brooklyn Eagle and later the longtime traveling secretary of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who moved his family to California when the Dodgers located in Los Angeles.

He certainly would be mighty proud of Travis.

So, Travis and Graydon got into the Montreal Masters as alternates when Llodra/Santoro had to withdraw due to Llodra's foot injury. They won their first match together on Wednesday, Oliver/Parrott d Etlis/Rodriguez 46 76(2) 76(4). They will play #1 seeds Bjorkman/Mirnyi on Friday.

Go GOTP!

Travis is ranked 38th in Doubles this week. That matches the highest rank he's ever had. He first got to #38 in June this year, and he's back up there again this week.
