Noah Rubin (born February 21, 1996 in New York) is an American tennis player.

Rubin won the Boy's Singles tournament at Wimbledon in July 2014. The following month he won the 2014 U.S. Tennis Association’s Boys 18s National Championships in both singles and doubles.

Early life

Rubin is Jewish, and his bar mitzvah had a tennis theme.[1][2] He attended religious school and celebrated his bar mitzvah at the Merrick Jewish Center (a Conservative synagogue), and collected tennis rackets to donate to the Israel Tennis Centers for his “mitzvah project.”[3][4] He said: "I want people to know I’m Jewish and I like to represent the Jewish people."[3]

His father Eric Rubin played junior tennis and was the number 1 player on the Martin Van Buren High School tennis team in Queens, and coaches him (along with Lawrence Kleger) and works as a banker, and his mother Melanie is an educator.[5][2][6][4][7] His older sister Jessie played on and was captain of the State University of New York at Binghamton tennis team, and now works for VH-1.[5][8]

He has lived in Rockville Centre and Merrick, New York.[5][9] He attended Levy-Lakeside Elementary School and Merrick Avenue Middle School, and then went to John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore, Long Island for one year, after which he studied via an online program at the Laurel Springs School, graduating in 2014.[4][10][11]

College

Rubin is attending and playing tennis for Wake Forest University in North Carolina, where part of his schedule will be to play pro events.[3][12] His scholarship there allows him, after he completes one year, to leave the university and then come back at any time to complete a degree.[12] In September 2014, Rubin was ranked the No. 1 Division 1 college freshman by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).[13][14]

Tennis career

Juniors

Rubin plays for the John McEnroe Tennis Academy on Randalls Island in the borough of Manhattan.

By the age of seven, Rubin was competing in 12-and-under events, and by the age of 11, he had won international events in his age-group.[7] In 2010, competing in Les Petits As in Tarbes, France, the most prestigious Boys 14-and-Under tournament in the world, he made it to the finals before losing.[15] John McEnroe called Rubin “the most talented player we’ve come across” at McEnroe's academy in 2011, when Rubin was 15.[16] He won the Copa Del Café, a Junior International Tennis Federation tournament in Costa Rica, in 2012.[2][17]

As a junior, Rubin reached as high as No. 6 in the International Tennis Federation’s world junior ranking and No. 1 in the United States in 2014.[16]

He qualified for the Boys' Singles tournament at Wimbledon in July 2014, and won the tournament in the first all-American final there since 1977.[18] He was the first American boy to win Wimbledon since Donald Young in 2007. He had played only one other event in 2014 before Wimbledon at the French Open, where he lost in the second round.[19]

The month after hoisting the trophy at Wimbledon, Rubin played in and won the 2014 U.S. Tennis Association’s Boys 18s National Championships in both singles and doubles (with close friend Stefan Kozlov).[11] The latter success at Kalamazoo, Michigan, came with two big bonuses: US Open main-draw wild cards into the singles and doubles.
