Wilson Congratulates Depauw As He Dominates The 2013 Boston Open

It is with immense excitement that Wilson Sporting Goods Co. congratulates Holvy Depauw on winning 2 trophies at the 2013 Boston Open. Taking place at MIT in Cambridge, Holvy dominated this year's Open with his Wilson Vertex racquet in hand. He proudly brought home his 7th and 8th Wilson Boston Open titles. Holvy won his 4th consecutive Men's Doubles title and his 2nd title in mixed doubles, making him the winner of 8 titles thus far in his career. He victoriously competed through the entire weekend without dropping a game in either division. No other athlete has won more Boston Open titles than Holvy giving him the nickname, "Mr. Boston Open".

The finals of this year's Boston Open was filled with several Wilson Team players including, Sarun Vivatpatanakul who went head to head with Holvy in the finals of the Men's Doubles competition. Also playing with a Wilson Vertex racquet, Sarun was in the finals for his second time in three years. Other notable Wilson players included Marc Lai and Daphne Chang who won the Senior Mixed division for their 2nd time.
Wilson is exceptionally proud to be the title sponsor of the Boston Open and to have the Wilson Tour 100 shuttlecock claim its position as Official Shuttle of the event. The sport of badminton is growing exponentially as this year's tournament garnered over 200 participants making it one of the largest tournaments in the country. Wilson is honored to partner with the Boston Open and many of the top athletes who compete in this event including, Mr. Boston Open, Holy Depauw. We are excited to see what next year's Open has in store for all our badminton athletes.
