PARIS — Unseeded Noah Rubin of the United States surprised third-seeded Liam Broady of Britain, 6-2, 6-3, to reach the quarterfinals of the French Open junior boys championship.

Rubin, 16, who trains at a New York tennis academy operated by John McEnroe, was joined in the round of 8 by another American, Mitchell Krueger, 18, of Aledo, Tex. A tennis recruit at Texas A&M who is seeded eighth at Roland Garros, Krueger defeated Quentin Halys of France, 7-6 (6), 6-4.

In junior girls’ third round matches, top-seeded Taylor Townsend of the United States was upset by Anna Schmiedlova of Slovakia, 5-7, 6-2, 6-1. Alexandra Kiick of the United States defeated Petra Uberalova of Slovakia, 6-2, 5-7, 6-3.

“It was a good match, it just felt good,” Rubin said of his victory over Broady.

McEnroe, he said, had given him a way to look at points differently. “He just put a different perspective into my head, how to play tennis, how to look at different shots differently. I couldn’t get this from any other person,” Rubin said.

His victory over Broady, one of the world’s top juniors, was striking. Last year, Broady gained the Wimbledon junior boys singles final and won the Wimbledon junior boys doubles title with Joshua Ward-Hibbert. In January, they won Australian Open junior boys doubles championship.

Broady’s reputation put Rubin on alert, he said. “I just always knew that the player he is, he always had a chance to come back. And I knew I had to be forceful, just play my game, step up when I needed to, and it worked out.”

In April, Rubin, who credits his father and grandfather for their dedication to his tennis, gained the semifinals of the USTA’s Spring Championship in Carson, Calif., and the Easter Bowl tournament held by the International Tennis Federation in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

Default Baby Noah!

Junior Jamboree: Tennis Is Noah’s Ark

So cute



Quote:
Noah Rubin is one of those kids who can’t remember not playing tennis, so in his mind he almost came out of the womb with racket in hand.

His mother, Melanie, an educator who is following the tournament from the Roland Garros website’s live scoring back in New York, has memories of Noah, still in diapers, swinging a tennis racket at a ball she hung from the ceiling of the living room.

Tennis was always a part of the Rubin family’s way of life. His paternal grandfather, Ed, loved tennis and his father, Eric, played junior tennis. So it’s no surprise that Noah and his older sister, Jessie, played followed the leader. Noah’s goal is the pros; Jessie plays on the State University of New York: Binghamton tennis team.

“I’ve been playing since day one,” Rubin said. “From a year on they just literally put a tennis racket in my hand to see what I would do with it. I swung it around a little bit and just progressed. I played my first tournament at six or seven and just had a lot of fun with it.

“My parents just always wanted me to have a lot of fun with the sport. I love the sport until right now.”

For Rubin, 16, tennis is everything he wants.

His dreams since childhood is to make a name for himself in the sport. Even his Bar Mitzvah was complete with a tennis theme, although ironically he says, “I didn’t invite one tennis player,” preferring to keep it to his friends from the neighborhood. That’s his methodology for keeping a good balance” in his life.

Since the beginning of this year, Rubin’s starting to find his form in the junior arena. He won the Copa Del Cafe 2012 event in January and reached back-to-back semifinals in April at the International Spring Championships and the Easter Bowl Championships.

The French Open is his second ever junior Grand Slam tournament — he played in the U.S. Open doubles last year and lost in the first round. The second time is obviously the charm as he moved into the quarterfinals via an upset of No. 3 seed Liam Broady of Great Britain 6-2, 6-3 on Wednesday.

“I’m trying not to think about it (being in the quarterfinals) too much, just trying to act like it’s just another tournament,” Noah said. “But it is not. It’s the French Open so it’s a very good experience right now.”

Part of Rubin’s determination to not be 100% tennis extends to eschewing the academy route and staying at home in New York: a child of divorce he spends equal time a week living with both parents. Rubin has been traveling this season with the USTA, including here to the French Open as well as Milan and Barcelona prior to coming to Paris.

Rubin’s dad has coached him from the outset and he also works with Lawrence Kleger. Both are here in Paris watching him advance through the draw.

The most illustrious voice Rubin hears on a regular basis, however, belongs to John McEnroe.

Yes, that John McEnroe, the former No. 1 with the seven Grand Slam titles. When they’re both in town, Rubin goes to McEnroe’s Sportime Academy on Randall’s Island twice a week to hit with the great one. He maintains his volleys have been helped as has his general understanding of the game.

“I play with him a lot and he’s a great guy,” Rubin said of McEnroe. “He does throw in an ‘Are you serious’ every once in a while. It’s been a really great opportunity. Overall, how he looks at the game and being able to pick at his brain has been great. He thinks of it all differently — he’s thinking three points ahead and he knows the shot you’re going to hit off of his shot. Those are the things he’s putting into my head.”

So how was it the first time he worked with McEnroe: “The first time we played, we played a set and I was just so nervous I couldn’t call a ball. I was so shocked, like my returns and everything was a shank. It was so nerve-wracking.”

In the ITF’s 2012 Junior Circuit Media Guide that lists 56 players, most of the kids list similar hobbies: other sports, music, movies, computers, internet, and reading. Rubin, who says the “Hurt Locker” is his favorite movie, went for the norm by listing soccer. But he is the only player who wrote art museums.

“When the kids were younger we spent every weekend at one museum or another,” Melanie Siegel Rubin said. “The Met, MOMA, The Whitney, The Jewish Museum etc. Noah used to say, at like 5 years old, that Jackson Pollack was his favorite.”

At this time, Rubin’s too busy playing tennis to take time to visit the illustrious museums of Paris. Nope, no visit yet to the Louvre. But he has discovered the croissants and that’s a piece of France he’s fallen in love with during this trip. That and the red clay of Roland Garros.

Default Noah Rubin Shocks Number Three Seed at French Open Juniors to Advance to Quarterfinal

Noah Rubin Shocks Number Three Seed at French Open Juniors to Advance to Quarterfinals



Quote:
Court 14 was the scene this morning at Roland Garros as Noah Rubin of Long Island took to the court for the third round of the 2012 Boys French Open Junior Singles Championships. The weather outside was windy, cold and drizzling at times, and the16-year-old Noah came in as the underdog against 18-year-old and third-seeded Liam Brody of Great Britain. Rubin could've succumb to an attitude of "happy to get this far" like many would in his position, or he could've succumbed to the pressure of the moment ... but that's not Noah's way. His mental toughness is the backbone to his game, and today, it came in handy once again.

Noah's traveling coaching team in France of Eric Rubin (father/coach) along with Lawrence Kleger (executive director of tennis at Sportime) and Nicolas Todero (USTA) laid out a game plan prior to the match for Noah. According to Eric Rubin after the match, "Noah came out incredibly calm and focused. He executed the game plan impeccably right from the start. He served extremely well in both choice and execution of serve type at the appropriate times. Noah's return game was exceptional, as he came up with key service winners on big points."

This all led to Noah taking the first set 6-2 and putting the third-seeded Brody on his heels, as the pressure had shifted.

In the second set, Rubin started strong and took an early lead, but then seemed to begin to play a little less aggressively which allowed Brody back into the second set briefly.

"He [Noah] quickly returned to his aggressive probing strategy, in closing out the match aggressively," said Eric Rubin.

Noah took the second set 6-3, earning him a straight set win and a trip to the Junior French Open Quarterfinals. Looking back on today's performance, Eric concluded, "The coaching team is just thrilled at Noah's performance. We couldn't have asked for more."

In the quarterfinals, Noah will face the number five seed, Filip Peliwo of Canada.
Coaching staff

Please come up with something for the next match .

Amazing run by Noah. A QF on what is usually considered an American's weakest surface and he got further than all his fellow 1996 standouts. He should definitely consider this a victory and I hope this gives him loads of confidence moving forward.

Noah loses 4-6 1-6 to Peliwo
Krueger wins 6-2 6-1 against De Vroome

Krueger has done better than I ever expected of him this year. I hope he wins something big soon because when he gets to college, I'll have to root against him.

TBH, I'm surprised that Noah got this far
Mitch has been playing very well this year. Seems very mature as well. GL in the semi .

Unfortunately the magical run of Long Island's Noah Rubin came to an end today in the quarterfinals of the 2012 French Open Juniors, as Noah was defeated 4-6, 1-6 by the number five seed, Filip Peliwo of Canada.

The playing conditions were far from ideal, as it was cold and drizzly throughout the match. The match started evenly with a high level of play from both sides and was 4-4 in the first set, but an aggressive Peliwo broke Noah to go up 5-4 and served out the set. Peliwo kept the momentum in the second set getting a couple breaks before finishing off the match.

Noah's longtime Coach Lawrence Kleger (director of the John McEnroe Tennis Academy) and Eric Rubin (father/coach) were both very proud of Noah's effort today even in defeat. Kleger said, "Although today wasn't Noah's best, he gave 100 percent effort throughout the match."

Eric Rubin added, "There was excellent, thoughtful play by both players. Noah kept fighting with every swing of his racket, despite tough deep and angled play by Peliwo."

While things didn't go Noah's way today, the future is obviously very bright. After the match, we spoke with Coach Kleger to get his perspective of how Noah did in his first French Open Juniors, and what he thought the future would bring for Noah as they continue to work together.

It sounds like the lack of experience may have cost him the first set. Good effort though.

Default Krueger Advances to Junior Semifinal



Krueger Advances to Junior Semifinal

Quote:
PARIS – Eighth-seeded Mitchell Krueger of Aledo, Tex., population 1,726, defeated Max de Vroome of the Netherlands, 6-2, 6-1, to gain the semifinal round of the French Open junior boys championship on Thursday.

A second American, Noah Rubin, 16, of Bellmore, N.Y., was eliminated by fifth-seeded Filip Peliwo of Canada, 6-4, 6-1.

Krueger’s 66-minute victory, interrupted by a rain delay, was secured against a hard-serving foe whose ground strokes deserted him. The American hit not a single double fault or unforced error.

“He plays a lot of first-strike tennis,” Krueger said. “You got to kind of hurt him on the first ball or else he’ll take control.”

When Kreuger, 18, found de Vroom offering little resistance on the Texan’s serves, it allowed him to win those games easily and gave him strength “to give it as much as I could on the returns.” He broke his opponent’s serve six times.

Krueger suffered only a single hiccup serving. “Before the rain came, he had a good return game where he broke me,” he said. De Vroome slammed three returns at Krueger’s feet and came away with his only break point conversion.

“After that game I stepped it up and started hitting more first serves and was able to keep control,” said Krueger, whose small hometown is about 25 miles from Fort Worth.

In the stands, Krueger’s parents, Marla and Myron Krueger, snapped photos and applauded their son’s best shots. Fewer than two dozen people watched the match, played on distant Court 17.

Krueger said he is the top-ranked American among players who compete on the International Tennis Federation circuit for juniors. He has signed a letter of intent to play college tennis at Texas A&M, his father’s alma mater, but has not made a decision.

Asked if a victory at Roland Garros would turn him toward a professional career, he replied: “I’m just taking one match at a time.”

A key point of the match came in the sixth game of the first set. Krueger blocked a backhand volley past de Vroome and the Dutch player, his groundstrokes betraying him, settled into a pattern of defeat.

Krueger mounted a 40-love lead in the final game, but let up slightly, blasting a backhand service return wide, and letting de Vroome hit a winner up the middle.

On the third match point, Krueger kept the ball in play until de Vroome blasted a backhand into the net. Krueger glanced at his parents as he left the court, stepped through a gate, and headed for the locker room, a semifinalist at one of the four major junior international tennis championships.
I guess it is not set in stone yet .

Eighth seed Mitchell Krueger had the best result of the Americans in the singles draw. He reached the semifinals before falling to eventual champion Kimmer Coppejans 6-3, 7-5.

Krueger has two options floating at the moment: attend his father, Myron’s, alma mater Texas A & M in the fall or turn pro. Krueger said his parents are willing to support any decision he decides.

Truth be told, in my estimation Krueger would benefit from spending at least a year as an Aggie. College is a great socialization process and the rugged college tennis schedule toughens up a player. Better to do that than go out to the lesser events and lose a lot. Just my opinion, not that Krueger asked.
If this is the case, maybe all our juniors should go to college for a year. Kwiatkowski, Corinteli, and even Papa need some toughening up. Kozlov, McDonald, and Rubin seem to have more fighting spirit than those guys.

they got the order wrong. From L to R, it is supposed to be: Coach, Halebian, McDonald, Krueger, Rubin, and Papa. Do we need to redo the height guessimate? . I was an inch off last time, Halebian is actually 6'-2", not 6'-3". From this picture, Papa seems to be 6'2" to 6'-3" and not 5'-11" to 6'-1" range I predicted.

Junior Davis Cup stars set for USA showdown

Published on Tuesday 5 June 2012 10:51

Some of Britain’s brightest young tennis players will be handed the chance to shine at the AEGON International next month, as they take on their American counterparts in a special challenge match.

The under 18 team will feature the British trio of Luke Bambridge (pictured), Evan Hoyt and Kyle Edmund who won the Junior Davis Cup last year, as well as Josh Ward-Hibbert, the Australian Open boy’s doubles champion.

The tournament will see the British team take on the USA on 21 and 22 June alongside the AEGON International at Eastbourne’s Devonshire Park.

Some of the world’s top players will be on show at the International, including reigning Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, but the GB v USA match up will give tennis fans the chance to see the next generation of tennis stars up close.

Tournament director Gavin Fletcher said, “This match between Great Britain and the USA gives the crowd the chance to have a glimpse of some emerging junior talent.

“The boys from the Great Britain team have had a lot of success in the past year and this will be the chance for them to show off their skills to a wider audience against the USA.”

Simon Jones, Match Director said, “This is the inaugural match of the LTA Junior Challenge Trophy and it promises to be a great match against the USA.

“The British team will consist of some of the best juniors in the world and it will be an exciting prospect to see them competing against America.”

I wonder if this will be streamed.

Kinda hard to judge height from this photo. Halebian looks a couple inches further up the hill than the rest which would give him extra height...however the camera seems to be angled upwards a little giving the closer players more height compared to Halebian as well. O_o All in all I'd say at least 6'0" is a safe bet for Papa's height. He's no small fry, that's for sure.
