Diego Schwartzman is only 1.7 meters tall (5' 7").
I wonder if Noah Rubin will one day surpass the accomplishments of Diego?
Rubin has been a bit of a bust in the ATP no?
Has he been a full time pro even two years? What is the measure of success, how soon does a player have to meet that standard and who is the arbiter of these mythical standards?
Compared to you? No, he’s been very successful on the tour.
Remember when Tennys Sandgren was a bust? Good luck to him tomorrow!

I’m rooting for Stevie Johnson. He’s been in a slump since his dad passed away. Good to see him break out of it.
Replies like this are always so stupid. Yes, its a shocker! I am not a professional athlete.
Very bad comparison. Sandgren was never a hot shot 1 and done player.
Yeah, your reply is asinine. Since you aren’t a professional athlete, you would have no idea how tough it is to consistently compete at the level pro players play at. I’ve got nothing but respect for all the pro tennis players regardless of their ranking.
Selective response. Thanks
I look forward to your insight here.
This is just the stupidest logic imaginable. I did not have my parents pay for countless tennis lessons growing up and I only played for fun. It was not my chosen career path to be a tennis professional and because of that I have no ability to have insight into the sport? I am a doctor professionally, and if I give a patient the wrong medication or wrong diagnoses should I just tell them "Since you aren't a doctor, you have no idea how tough it is to diagnose an individual patient every day" of course not.
I am not saying Rubin is a bad player, he is of course great compared to the average person. But I remember people thinking he would easily be top 100 and some Wake Forest fanatics even thought he could be top 50.
Your analogy is really stupid. As a doctor, you aren’t competing with a fellow doctor when diagnosing patients. You don’t have an opponent who is fighting you for the same thing. I’ve had plenty of doctors who are just incompetent and awful. You sound a lot like those same doctors.
Have you never ever criticized a professional athlete? Say you have a favorite NBA team and they player is making millions of dollars and he isn't playing as well as he can. You call him out on it, do you really think "Go play him 1 on 1 and see what happens" is an adequate response?
Rubin can't win more than 1 match in a row at the moment. His rankings sinking and he cares more about his faux philosophical musings and about where he will go to the beach next. He has had a little bit of injury issues yes but that just makes his chances to break into the top 100 even more slim.
Another bad analogy. Did you pay for Noah Rubin season tickets and feel you’re not getting your monies worth?

he needs to bulk up a little more and add just little bit more pace and topspin to his shots.. 5 % increase in spin and power will make a huge difference on this player.
It’s a real scary thought that this guy is a doctor. I fear for his patients.
They all add on a few extra inches lol
He was an amazing junior and College player but the pro circuit is not for boys
I imagine this time next year he will either be teaching tennis or working at some Deli on the Upper West Side.
It's irrelevant to compare him to me ( a 4.0 to 4.5 player), only relevant to compare to him to another top 200 Pro and he has been pretty awful.
He seems to have more success hanging out on beaches and working on his 6 pack.
He is a super nice guy and I hope he can break through but it looks slim.
I guess he can always get a job as a head pro teaching tennis or he will be working at Katz Deli on the upper West Side
Probably still not good enough to play you? LOL http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/tournaments/men's-tournament/info.aspx?tournamentid=1100042650
Have a great Sunday!
Nice win for Noah Rubin today. He beat denis kudla at the Tallahassee challengers.
Noah Rubin wins again today so he’s into the semifinals at the Tallahassee challengers!
Noah Rubin is into the finals at the Tallahassee challengers! Hope he wins it. If he wins tomorrow, will he still be considered a bust?
Great win for Rubin to take the Tallahassee challengers!!! Hopefully this will be the springboard to bigger wins! anyone who can win an ATP challenger event is not a bust in my eyes.
Great match point for Noah. Can he challenge RAFA at the French open and upset him ?
He won't get the chance. Rafa will get beaten in the first round by Matt Bruch.
Rubin draws Isner in the 1st round of the French Open.
Rubin will be top 100 by 2019 if not sooner
Takes down John Isner in DC
Huge win although Isner looked far from his best
Huge win knocking out a huge guy
After winning in Atlanta, I was surprised that isner didn’t pull out of DC. He’s no longer a young guy so he should pace himself so he doesn’t burn out before the US open.
Rubin, summer 2018, proving the detractors wrong.
This will give him some nice ATP points! Currently #152 in the ATP...
Was at his match in D.C. versus Rublev. Rubin, looking a bit tired, displayed massive grit and good sportsmanship. American tennis should be proud.
Unfortunate that he had to play 2 matches like many players due to all the weather delays.
Now up to 139.
I expect Rubin to go up higher in the rankings this season. He will probably crack the top 100.
