PersonalEdit

Ram was born to Indian parents Raghav and Sushma Ram. Table tennis, cricket, and music are some of his interests.

Early careerEdit

In his junior career, Ram won a total of nine national junior titles, including singles and doubles. Amongst his titles were the National Claycourt 14-and-under singles title, the boys' 16-and-under national championship, the 18-and-under Easter Bowl title, and the Target Cup tournaments. In addition to his nine junior titles, Ram played high school tennis at Carmel, earned All-State honors, became the state singles champion, and earned a scholarship in both 1998 and 1999.

Rajeev earned a wildcard entry into the Juniors' 2001 US Open. Ram participated in all of the Grand Slam junior tournaments.[7] He was the runner-up in juniors doubles at the 2002 Wimbledon, partnered with Brian Baker.

Ram then delayed enrollment at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign until January 2003 so that he could continue to play tennis as an amateur on the pro circuit.[8] During his one semester as a ringer at Illinois, he won the national doubles title with Brian Wilson and helped the Fighting Illini go undefeated (32–0) and win the 2003 NCAA team championship.[8]

On July 10, Ram advanced to the singles semifinals with wins over Samuel Groth and Jesse Levine and then partnered with Jordan Kerr to advance to the doubles semifinals with wins over Arnaud Clément/Olivier Rochus and Nicolas Mahut/Fabrice Santoro. Mahut, Santoro, and Rochus each played three matches that day, though none of them won all their matches. Ram then beat Rochus and Sam Querrey on consecutive days to capture his first ATP title.[9] He accomplished the rare feat of winning a title as a Lucky loser and also captured the doubles title.

In Atlanta in July 2010, he won his first doubles title with American Scott Lipsky, defeating Rohan Bopanna and Kristof Vliegen for the outdoor hard-court Atlanta Tennis Championships.[10][11] In the semifinals, Lipsky and Ram had defeated John Isner and James Blake.[12] In November, they won a tournament in Eckental, Germany.[13]
