Friday Morning Man: Noah Rubin!
Well, well, I’ve found a yummy young tennis player to crush on who I had not previously been aware of.
He’s Noah Rubin and yesterday he upset second seeded John Isner in the men’s tournament in Washington D.C. Inner was coming off of a semifinal finish at Wimbledon and a tournament victory in Newport, Rhode Island.
The 22 year old from Long Island is a former Wimbledon junior singles champion and a former USTA junior national champion in both singles and doubles. Since turning pro in 2015, he has won four ATP Challenger titles and has been steadily ranked just inside or just outside the Top 200 in singles.
He is currently ranked a career high 152.
Rubin also played college tennis for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in the 2014–15 season. Entering the year as the ITA No. 1 ranked college freshman, he would finish the season as an All-American and the runner-up in the 2015 NCAA singles championship.
