WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's Matthew Brooklyn and Stephanie Wetmore moved one step closer to the US Open on Tuesday winning the Mixed Doubles Championship at the US Open National Playoffs Mid-Atlantic Sectional Qualifying Tournament at the Tennis Center at College Park. Brooklyn spent two seasons as the assistant coach for the Hoyas' men's and women's programs, while Wetmore is an alum and one of the top products to come out of the Georgetown program in recent years.

The pair had a bye in the first round before defeating a duo from Maryland and Virginia in the quarterfinals by a score of 6-0, 6-0. Wetmore and Brooklyn took the semifinal match against Kristoffer Barnes and Lindsey Hardenbergh 6-0, 6-4.

In the finals, the pair faced Andrew Carlson and Olivia Gaudreault, both of Maryland. Georgetown's duo battled for the 6-3, 6-1 victory to take the title.

Last year, Brooklyn won the men's title and advanced to the national playoffs.

They will now play in the US Open National Playoffs Championships August 21-24 in New Haven, Conn., at Yale University during the New Haven Open at Yale, a WTA event, part of the Emirates Airline US Open Series.

The winner of each Singles Championship (1 male, 1 female) will receive a wild card entry to compete in the 2013 US Open Qualifying Tournament (August 20-23) and the winner of the Mixed Doubles Championship (1 team) will receive a wild card entry to compete in the 2013 US Open Mixed Doubles Championship at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
