Marty Riessen won a career Grand Slam in mixed doubles with Australia's Margaret Court and seven mixed doubles majors overall. He also won two Grand Slam titles in men's doubles. Riessen swept Big Ten singles and doubles titles for three consecutive years and lost in the NCAA singles final in each of those years. A two-year letterwinner, he was a five-time member of the U.S. Davis Cup team and Dunlop Sport named one of its wooden racquets the "Marty Riessen."
