PARIS – JMTA’s Noah Rubin, who made a name for himself at last year’s French Open junior championships in reaching the quarterfinals, was unable to match that feat in 2013. Noah opened this year’s event with two strong matches as he advanced to the round of 16. Once there, Noah faced the No. 5 seed, Kyle Edmund of Great Britain. After losing the first set, Rubin rallied from a 0-2 game in the second set, ultimately winning it to level the match at one set each. However, Rubin ultimately fell short, losing the third set and the match by the score of 7-5, 5-7, 6-3. Despite his loss, Noah performed strongly in Paris, and has clearly shaken off the effects of an injury that he suffered in early 2013, which kept him sidelined for a couple of months. The New Yorker will be looking to bounce back later this month as he is again set to compete in London at this year’s Wimbledon junior championships.
