Former Virginia tennis player Sanam Singh joined the Cavaliers as a volunteer assistant coach in the fall of 2017.

Singh was ranked as high as No. 1 in the ITA singles rankings, reaching that pinnacle as a junior where he also reached the NCAA Singles Championship semifinals. In the same year, Singh, playing alongside Somdev Devvarman, advanced to the semifinals of the ATP Chennai Open.
