Back to basics for Noah Rubin

The road to the top is never smooth.

And 22-year-old Noah Rubin, who went from the qualifying to the Wimbledon junior boys’ title in 2014, has lost his last five matches.


Rubin defeated Frances Tiafoe and Taylor Fritz on his way to that title. Both, meanwhile have zoomed into the top 70.

Currently No. 244, down from a high of No. 161 after winning the Noumea Challenger in January, Rubin has gone back to basics.

He took a wild card into an entry level ITF Futures event in Florida – his first at that level in more than two years.
