Romain Ambert is in his fourth year as an assistant coach at Virginia Commonwealth University following a stellar collegiate playing career.

Ambert’s presence has been a large part of the Rams success since 2006. In his first season, the VCU men’s team reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament and finished with a No. 14 national ranking. Additionally, the Rams have captured two CAA Championships during his tenure.

Ambert has also been instramental in the development of several of the Rams’ younger players.

Moreover, his 98 singles rank in the top five in MSU history and helped him earn Southeastern Conference First Team honors his first three seasons, the only Bulldog to ever accomplish that feat. He was also ranked as high as third nationally during his career and finished the 2002 season as the ninth-ranked player in the country.

In 2003, Ambert won the singles title at the ITA Southeast Championships, cruising to a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Dmitriy Koch of Tulane. He followed that victory by advancing to the Quarterfinal Round of the ITA National Indoor Championships before falling to eventual champion Jeremy Wurtzman of Ohio State in three sets. Ambert also captured the 2001 Southern Collegiate Singles Championship and won his way into the National Intercollegiate Championship final.

Still an active participant, Ambert captured singles titles at the 2006 and 2007 Virginia State Indoor Tennis Championships.
