He is competing for the second consecutive year in the Lewis and Clark Community College Men's Pro Tennis Tournament.

Last year Rubin finished runner up in the USTA Men's Pro Circuit Futures $10K tournament.

Rubin, who is ranked No. 533, said his goal is to win the Boy's 18s Championship for a main draw ticket to the US Open.

At Wimbledon, Rubin had to get through the qualifying rounds to earn a spot in the main draw where he defeated No. 6 Stefan Kozlov 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 in the championship match.

Rubin is the second American in the last 19 years to capture the Wimbledon singles title. The Rubin-Kozlov match was the first All-American Wimbledon junior boy's final since 1977.
