I have written a bunch of articles that have mentioned Noah Rubin. Noah, who at age 16, is currently #7 in the world on the ITF (International Tennis Federation) junior rankings and 1052 on the ATP World Tour. He has only played a handful of ATP events with his biggest win coming over Jason Jung (USA) 4-6, 6-3, 2-0 RET. Jung is ranked 591st in the world. His biggest win in a non retirement match was a 7-6(6), 6-3 win over 716th ranked Matthew Short of Great Britain.
Jessie Rubin plays for the University of Binghamton. Jessie was praised recently on the Binghamton Women’s Tennis web page for her selflessness. “It has truly been an inspirational story of how one can stay so positive and optimistic through a struggling chapter in one’s athletic career….With the Patella Femoral Pain Syndrome, Jessie was forced out of training from 2010-11, in total an entire 18 months….Through her injury, she has been completely selfless and comes out and cheers on her teammates during practice, workouts and matches.” – Read the whole story – HERE
The next part of this tennis family is Eric Rubin, the dad. Eric was the #1 player at Martin Van Buren High School in Queens as well as being Captain. He was also a ball boy at the U.S. Open. He is also Noah’s coach, along with Lawrence Kleger of the John McEnroe Tennis Academy at Sportime Randall’s Island.
Noah’s mom – Melanie Rubin also is heavily involved in tennis. She received the Ron Smyth Parent Sportsmanship Award from the USTA Eastern Section. “She helps promote street fairs, the corporate challenge and the Long Island Regional Awards Dinner, and is always eager to participate in every aspect of promoting the game of tennis.” (Long Island Tennis Magazine).
The Rubin’s also have ties to the Capital District area. They met here, while attending college at the University at Albany. From Dutch Quad, to the #1 player in the country on Tennis Recruiting. I will watch for more tennis greatness from the Rubins in the years to come.
