Quazi Sadruzzaman is the greatest men's tennis singles player in UMass Boston history. Period. He is the only player in history to win the Little East Conference Flight One Singles Championship all four times and also captured the Flight One Doubles crown with partner Dat Nguyen in 2004 to give him five overall LEC titles. A four-time LEC Player of the Week, Sadruzzaman played all 56 of his singles matches from the number one spot in the lineup and won 50 of them for an astounding winning percentage of .893 for the highest mark of any player at UMB with over 20 matches played. His win total is also the most in school annals. The netter didn't just win matches, he dominated them. From April 27, 2002 to May 8, 2004, he won 28 straight singles contests to go undefeated for the final two and a half seasons of his career and won 25 of those matches in straight sets, including a string of 17 straight outings, where he dropped no more than four games in a set. Sadruzzaman made it his trademark to play short matches, having won 44 of his matches in straight sets and proved to be tough even in defeat, taking his opponent to three sets in half of his six losses. His success wasn't limited to singles play as evidenced by a 36-17 record in doubles action for a .679 career winning percentage to rank eighth among players with two or more seasons at UMB. A 2004 UMass Boston graduate, his victory total in doubles play stands as the second most in school history and contributes to an overall combined record of 86-23 for a .789 winning mark to rank first in combined wins and fourth in combined winning percentage for players with two or more seasons for the Beacons. He finished his career in style, posting a 24-3 combined record as a senior for an impressive .889 winning percentage and won 12 consecutive matches to close out his career, including six in doubles play.
