WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Former Purdue men's tennis standout Jason Marshall recently captured his fourth ATP Challenger doubles title. Marshall, a native of Dallas, teamed with fellow American Travis Parrott to claim the $50,000 Music City Challenger in Nashville, Tenn., on Nov. 13.

Marshall and Parrott, seeded second in the tournament, won four straight matches to win the championship. They beat unseeded Cecil Mamiit and Danai Udomchoke 6-3, 6-4 in the final.

Marshall, a three-time All-Big Ten performer who graduated from Purdue in 2001, won the Donetsk Challenger in Donetsk, Ukraine, with partner Harsh Mankad in September 2003; the Glimmer of Hope Challenger in Austin, Texas, with Yen-Hsun Lu in November 2003; and the West Side Tennis Club Men's Clay Court Challenger in Forest Hills, N.Y., with Bruno Soares in May 2004.

Marshall currently is teaming with American Brandon Coupe in doubles at the $50,000 Wright Financial/Northwest Mutual Financial Challenger in Champaign, Ill. The tournament will run through Nov. 20.

Marshall's current world ranking for doubles is 133rd, as of Nov. 15. He achieved a high ranking of 124th on Aug. 9, 2004.
