Sanam spent 4 very succesful years at Virginia in college tennis. He played 2 or 3 for the Cavs for most of his team behind Shabaz and Donijan. He did reach #1 in the nation in college tennis for one of the ranking weeks.
He has upped his rank to 612 in the ATP after winning an Indian future last week and has been making deep runs in Indian futures for weeks. He is ready to step up to the challengers soon. Got a WC into Charlottesville and took Bobby Reynolds to 3 sets and has taken Ilhan to 3 before.
I have seen him play in person twice. He is very speedy and has a great backhand. He has a great shoulder motion on the double handed bh and can hit it flat down the line or crosscourt. He really steps in and drives it. Very good shotmaker on the run. Very clutch player and physically fit, could play for 10 hours.
