Chanda in Miami

Chanda beat Mauresmo 60 62

C. RUBIN/A. Mauresmo
6-0, 6-2

An interview with:

CHANDA RUBIN

THE MODERATOR: First question, please.

Q. Can you just talk about, I guess you're back in the Top 10, it's the first time in several years. Can you talk about whether it was difficult to get back, to climb that back up. And how difficult was it, if so?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, it's been, I think, seven years and three surgeries, so I'd say it's definitely been a road for me. I wouldn't have said it's easy by a long shot. But I've worked hard and I've had some minor setbacks along the way. But I feel like I've been playing some really good tennis overall, when I've been able to be healthy and compete. That's what I take to the court with me every day - I try to anyway - regardless of where my ranking has been.

So I feel really good to be back right now into the Top 10.

Q. Was there ever a point when you were up there before, ever a time when you took it for granted, you got there and said, "This is always going to be there"? Did you take things for granted at all?

CHANDA RUBIN: I don't think so at all, because I got injured probably three or four months after breaking into the Top 10. I had a final here which got me up to 6, which was my highest. Pretty much a couple weeks later, my next tournament, my wrist started hurting me.

So I don't think it was ever a point where I was just, you know, complacent about it, or I got a chance to, "Oh, I'm in the Top 10," and play tournaments and what have you. I've pretty much had to, right away, look at surgeries and, you know, career, when I'll be able to come back and all of that. I don't think I ever took it for granted. I didn't have a chance to.

Q. Can you give us a little detail about the injury, what happened?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, I had my first wrist surgery in '96, I had a stress fracture which happened in April right after my final here in 1996. I was out for a good six months with that injury total. Then I've had two knee surgeries since then, one last year in January and one the January before, in 2001. So I've had a few rehabbing incidents just in the last couple years where I've had to work to get back from the knee injury.

Q. Same knee, different knee?

CHANDA RUBIN: Same knee.

Q. You won twice last year. Did that signal to yourself that you were getting back to where you wanted to be?

CHANDA RUBIN: Definitely. I mean, my goal this time around, and just, you know, since probably the first surgery, has just been to try to win events, at the end of the week, be the last person standing.

So I felt really good winning the first one in Eastbourne after having coming back from the surgery. The second one was definitely sweet because of the players I had to beat in LA. It was definitely, you know, for me an indication of where I was and where I could be. I definitely have to sustain that level, you know, on a week-to-week basis, or try to anyway.

I felt good about those wins.

Q. Today, in beating Amelie, somebody who hits the ball as hard as she does, you handled her fairly easily, what does that say about where your game is at?

CHANDA RUBIN: I definitely will take days like this. They don't come often. I felt like I played a really great match. She didn't play quite as well as she would have liked. I felt like I started off from the beginning and really stayed on her for most of the match.

So, you know, it's something I can take into the next match. I've just wanted to continue building my next round, try to continue doing the same things but even be a little bit better, be a little more aggressive into the net, taking the play that way. And, you know, see where I am at the end of this thing.

Q. Do you have doubles later?

CHANDA RUBIN: I do.

Q. You're a person who plays doubles a lot, too. Just talk about the balancing act you play in a given tournament if you happen to go far in both singles and doubles?

CHANDA RUBIN: I think this tournament is kind of strange because this is my first doubles match and it's Monday. So I don't know how that will work for the rest of the week, if I continue in both. I think it will be a little bit tough. I haven't played as much doubles as, you know, I played in years previous.

But, you know, I always like playing. I think it's always good to, you know, still be in a competitive match but not, you know, be singles. If you're still in singles, I think it's nice on top of it.

It just depends how I am feeling going into a tournament now - if I want to play, if I want to do the double-duty thing, you know.

We'll see overall how much I play, but here, I'm playing.

Q. Why do you think we see such a disparity between doubles and singles as far as the way it's marketed?

CHANDA RUBIN: In singles, it's the more glamourous part. That's where the main -- everything is, you know, in singles. Your top players, the best players, are going to be playing singles.

Doubles is a little more specialized, a very different game. It just doesn't get the same type of recognition. You know, in terms of what doubles requires versus singles, it's a lot of difference in terms of that as well. I think, overall, you put a lot more work into playing singles. Even when you're out there by yourself versus being out there with a partner, it's just a totally different game.

I think singles is and probably always will be the more glamourous part compared to doubles.

Q. It's your first match on that court today. All through the tournament Venus and Serena got a lot of publicity, also some of the younger American girls that have done well. Does that affect you at all that you might not have had as much publicity?

CHANDA RUBIN: I'm fine with it. I have no problems with that part of it. I don't play it for publicity. It definitely comes along with doing well and, you know, once you're in the later rounds of the tournament and beating the top players.

But in terms of it meaning something to me and it meaning something in terms of how I go out onto the court, it doesn't mean anything at all. I'd rather be in the finals with nobody knowing until the final day than have all the publicity and lose first or second round, so...

Q. Mauresmo has one of the finest backhands on the women's tour. How do you get yourself mentally ready to face that backhand?

CHANDA RUBIN: I mean, I don't look at it as any tougher than a number of other backhands out there. I mean, people can hit the ball. Most of the players you come up against who are in the Top 10 can play well, hit the ball well, you know, off both sides.

But you have a number of people who hit the backhands really well. You just have to be ready for it. You know that when they can, they're going to try to be aggressive with it, take it up the line. You've just got to be ready to move and counter. That's the name of the game.

Q. To go back to your injury, what was your motivation during all the times you had surgery and trying to rehab, what brought you back to the sport?

CHANDA RUBIN: I think it was the feeling that I just hadn't reached my level, the highest level that I felt that I could play at. I hadn't played my best tennis. That was what motivated me to get back and try to reach that, try to see where I would end up when it was all said and done.

Just feel like I played, you know, up to or at least as close as possible to what my potential is. When it's all said and done, I think I'll be happy with that, but it continues to motivate me.

Q. I think you said you were able to reach high standards but you weren't able to enjoy being there.

CHANDA RUBIN: I think sometimes -- well, the good part, and sometimes the most frustrating part about the game, is every week you have to continue to come out and prove it and continue to, you know, make a stand in terms of where your game is, where you feel your game is. That's what I feel like I can, you know, really do a lot better with and where I really want to reach my, you know, high level in terms of those things.

So just getting into the Top 10 is, you know, not enough. I've done that before, of course. It's about maintaining it, going even further - I mean Top 5 - and really maintaining a certain level for however much longer I want to do it and want to compete.

But, you know, until that time, every week I want to come out and, you know, put it on the line.

Q. Second set, she's just closed 2-3. You hit a spectacular running forehand cross-court. A lot of players would be jumping up and down, but not Chanda Rubin. Inside, is there some quiet exhilaration when you make a shot like that?

CHANDA RUBIN: Definitely, when you make it, it's clear. It's clear to everybody in the stands and it's definitely clear if you're the player on the court. I had a few shots that were really clutch and that I needed at some really tight times where she could have made more of a stand. I was pretty happy to make a couple of those.

Q. When are you going to show it to us on the court?

CHANDA RUBIN: I can't answer that. I mean, I just go out, playing the way that I play. You know, for me, the whole fist pumping all the time, you know, all of that stuff, I think sometimes it can take away, you know, and maybe the next point you play is a flat next point. Just depends on the player.

For me, it's not me usually. But if it's in the finals, if I'm in a Grand Slam, we'll see. Maybe ask me then (laughing).

Q. You put a lot of your own time and money into programs to help promote tennis to young girls. Why do you feel so serious about that or take that role so seriously?

CHANDA RUBIN: I think it's important to give back. I definitely try to balance it out with my schedule and that comes first, what I'm trying to accomplish and what I'm trying to do as a player. There are certain things that I feel I can do that don't necessarily take away from what I'm trying to do personally.

I just think it's important to, you know, try to promote, first and foremost, the game of tennis and the opportunities that it can provide for young people, as well as just the confidence that you can use in other areas - not just in tennis, if that's the road you choose to go or not. I think it's just important for me to try to get that across. I mean, tennis has helped me and meant a lot to me, so hopefully it can continue to bring it to more people, more kids.

Q. Growing up in southern Louisiana, a big tennis mecca, what put you into the sport?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, big tennis mecca (smiling)... When I was coming up, we had a really good junior program at my club in Lafayette. My parents played, so that's how I first started, first picked up a racquet. They just played for fun, they started playing tournaments later after college and really loved the game. So I kind of picked it up then. We just would go out, it was family time. For me, it was -- I guess I enjoyed it then, I don't remember much. But from then, I just started taking lessons there. As I said, we had a real good junior program. Got some good fundamentals. So I didn't have it too bad.

Q. How many gators you got swimming around in those bayous?

CHANDA RUBIN: I don't count them (smiling).

3 surgeries later, Rubin's a force

3 surgeries later, Rubin's a force

She routs Mauresmo in 4th round

BY GARY ESTWICK
[email protected]

Seven years and three surgeries after reaching the top 10, Chanda Rubin is finally back.

As Rubin advances through the NASDAQ-100 Open this week, the tournament marks the first time since 1996 that she has been ranked among the 10 best players on the WTA Tour.

Her world No. 10 ranking will likely improve if Rubin continues to play like she did Monday. In little more than an hour, Rubin breezed by Amelie Mauresmo of France 6-0, 6-2 during the fourth round at the Tennis Center at Crandon Park.

''I definitely will take days like this,'' the 27-year-old American said. ``They don't come often.''

Her quick match did little to explain the bumpy road Rubin has traveled since earning a career-best No. 6 ranking after reaching the finals on Key Biscayne in 1996.

Rubin never had a chance to enjoy her time in the upper echelon on the tour. After Rubin beat world No. 6 Gabriela Sabatini and lost to No. 1 Steffi Graf in the final, she suffered a stress fracture in her right hand, leading to her first of three surgeries with two knee operations to follow.

Rubin never truly enjoyed her time at the top, never took her world ranking for granted. She never had a chance to.

By 2000, Rubin made a comeback. She reached two singles finals and won in Quebec City to improve her ranking to No. 11, her best in four years.

Rubin also qualified for the season-ending championships for the first time since 1995 but was hampered by a left-knee injury. She had arthroscopic surgery in January 2001 after the Australian Open; a second knee surgery followed 12 months later.

Rubin was back on the court last season, winning her fourth and fifth career singles titles in Eastbourne, England, and Los Angeles.

Winning the singles titles last season -- especially in Los Angeles -- was special to Rubin, as she proved to herself that she could find success in the sport.

''The second one was definitely sweet because of the players I had to beat in L.A.,'' Rubin said. ``It was definitely, you know, for me an indication of where I was and where I could be.''

Rubin ended the 2002 season ranked No. 13 in the world.

Already this season, she has reached the semifinals at Tokyo and the quarterfinals at Indian Wells, Calif.

The magic was back against Mauresmo.

''She played very good tennis,'' Mauresmo said. ``She didn't let me get my rhythm.''

''I feel like I've been playing some really good tennis overall, when I've been able to be healthy and compete,'' Rubin said. ``That's what I take with me to the court every day -- I try to, anyway -- regardless of where my ranking has been.''

Chanda Rubin upset fourth-seeded Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne

Chanda Rubin upset fourth-seeded Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne

Wed March 26, 2003 10:28 PM ET

By Richard Luscombe

MIAMI (Reuters) -- Chanda Rubin upset fourth-seeded Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne 6-3 6-2 in the Nasdaq-100 Open on Wednesday to become the third American to qualify for the semi-finals of the $2.96 million hardcourt event. The 12th seed delivered another confident display of power and accuracy as she swept past former Wimbledon runner-up Henin-Hardenne, who said her game was well below its usual standard. The Belgian was on target with only 42 percent of her first serves and said she felt lethargic during the match. Rubin raced into a 4-0 lead in the first set and took her foot off the pedal only once, allowing Henin-Hardenne a solitary break point at 5-3. In the second set, Henin-Hardenne continued to struggle with her serve and Rubin broke again to lead 3-2. In the final three games, the American conceded only one point as she returned serve with deadly precision. "I played so bad at the beginning of the match, it was hard to start at 4-0," Henin-Hardenne told reporters.

"I felt without energy, without power. Maybe I was a little nervous, I just couldn't play as I wanted." This is Rubin's best performance here since she lost the 1996 final to Steffi Graf. She beat eighth seed Amelie Mauresmo of France in the fourth round earlier this week. "I've been getting better each match as the opponents have got tougher," Rubin said. "Tonight, I felt quicker and that I was rushing her.

MAGIC TOUCH

"It was important not to let her get too comfortable and to take advantage where I could. I made a few errors (at the end of the first set) but still feel I competed well at those points, even though I wasn't as crisp as in the first few games."

An interview with CHANDA RUBIN

http://www.nasdaq-100open.com/news/2...ews/0328c.html


J. CAPRIATI/C. Rubin 6-2, 6-4

An interview with CHANDA RUBIN

THE MODERATOR: Questions.

Q. It seemed like it took you a while to get into the match. Once you did, you're right there. Is that how you saw it?

CHANDA RUBIN: Yeah, I started off a little bit slow. I mean, I had some opportunities early on in the first set, then, you know, just making a few too many errors and letting her force me a little too much. I definitely got back into the match in the second set, of course, got up a break. You know, was right there. Still just was a little bit short on some big points, wasn't quite as solid as she was. She was hitting the ball really well today. Just wasn't quite as solid off the ground. My attacking game was working really well, but I just wasn't able to impose it enough when I was making errors from the ground, so...

Q. You changed your game in the second set, went to the net more?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, I definitely had to. You know, I would have liked to have hit the ball just a little bit better off the ground and match her a little bit better there. As I said, she was hitting the ball really solidly. Sometimes you have to sort of go with a changeup, not really plan B, because I planned to mix in my attacking game. But I felt like I had to do a lot more to really get into it.

Q. Her forehand was particularly brutal today. How did you feel about it? At times, it seemed like you went there when you might have had other options?

CHANDA RUBIN: I mean, her backhand is really solid, you know. I think, bread and butter shot for her. She happened to hit her forehand really well today and, you know, wasn't many places I could go. I think I just needed to pressure her a little bit more, be a little more solid early in the points, then really pressure her more by getting in, attacking, using the volleys. You know, it's a high-tempo game that I needed to play a few times, that there were a few times in the match where it was just lagging a little bit, had some long rallies, real physical way to play. But that's what I have to be able to do and sustain throughout a match from start to finish.

Q. How would you assess how she's playing right now? January was tough for her. She's come back. She said she thought today was probably her best match in a long time?

CHANDA RUBIN: I felt like she played a really, really good match compared to other matches I've seen or parts of other matches I've seen from her this week. She was on the ball. She didn't make a lot of errors. There were times where, you know, she would give a few up, but, yeah, I thought she played a really solid, solid match. She basically will come out and hit the ball from the ground that, I knew that coming into it. I'm a little bit disappointed I didn't play better and wasn't able to raise my game where it needed to be.

Q. Do you feel sometimes she hits the ball so hard the linesmen don't see it?

CHANDA RUBIN: Yeah, well, it's tough, but they're coming really fast sometimes. You know, it's -- just got to be ready, you know. A couple calls here and there, you know, you'd like to think it doesn't make or break a match, but sometimes it's at a really tough time.

Q. You double-faulted on the next play, I think, made it 5-3. Did that affect you at all, that baseline call, mentally, maybe?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, I don't think it affected me so much. I mean, she came up, I think the next point, with a really good pass. That was really a tough point, I think, at deuce. You know, just, you know, I didn't quite have it where I needed to have it, and, you know, had some really good opportunities there, I had some good moments where I had a chance just to keep it even and keep it tight, until I could kind of get my nose ahead, and I didn't do it well enough today.

Q. What would be your scouting report on the final tomorrow, Capriati and Serena? How would you see that match?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, I think they've had some really good matches in the past that I've seen. Both hitting the ball. You know, I think Serena, you know, would probably want to play a little bit better than she played yesterday. But with that being said, I think it will be a really, really tough match if they both come out playing well, both come out hitting the ball. You'd like to give the edge to Serena, she's confident and hasn't lost a match this year and Jennifer hasn't beaten her, I think, in the last few times they've played, even though they've had some tough matches. But you never know. Who knows? It's not me, so I'm just gonna watch it (smiling).

Q. Talk more about yourself. You're one of the few players that actually did beat Serena. Looking at your future, you're in what they would call "the mid-life of tennis," I've never seen you play better. Do you feel that much -- do you feel your window of opportunity for winning a Grand Slam or beating the Williamses is getting more narrow?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, you never know. I try not to think of it in terms of that. I mean, I definitely feel I have fewer opportunities now than I've had earlier in my career, of course. But I feel like I'm playing some of my best tennis. This is the time where I can really take advantage of it, and where I have all the tools and, you know, mentally and physically, to be able to take advantage the way I didn't have before. So, you know, I feel really good and confident about that. These type of situations, where I feel like it's an opportunity lost, it's tough. Really disappointing. That part, I think is a little more disappointing now. But you just got to come back. I feel like, you know, I really try to concentrate and work on positive things every time I go out into a tournament. I feel more consistent out there, and I feel like I'm giving myself better opportunities like this than I have a lot of other times. So, you know, I just have to go with that and come back, you know, the next week.
We've got three Grand Slams left. Those are really the big stages that you want to play well at. So if I get something from this match and from this week, that will propel me in those tournaments, I'll be smiling.

Q. Did you notice a difference in Jennifer? Jennifer said she's even tried, and we've noticed in interviews, she's trying to be more relaxed and not as uptight. Did you notice a difference in her demeanor or anything on the court?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, I think definitely you want to come out relaxed. The semifinals of a tournament, she had a tough match the round before, she was able to win that. So I think, you know, from that match, going into here, she definitely felt a little more relaxed and tried to project that. You know, that's the way you want to come out and play. Any time you're in the last few rounds of a week where, you know, you found your form and you just want to keep riding it, so that's definitely the way to go.

Q. What about personally, have you been around her enough to notice a change there?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, I mean, we've practiced a few times this week, couple of times. You know, other than that, you know, just around the locker room. I can't say I notice a big change or that I was really looking for it, so it's tough for me to say.

Q. You guys practice together at Saddlebrook?

CHANDA RUBIN: We do. We have occasionally, yes.

Q. This year?

CHANDA RUBIN: I don't know if we did this year.

Q. Did you play with a lot of different doubles partners this year? Will you play with one in particular this year?

CHANDA RUBIN: I don't have any plans yet. I don't have any one particular partner. I haven't played as much doubles so far this year, I've just been trying to focus on the singles and keep myself healthy for that.

Q. You've become quite a hero for quite a few people. The wheelchair tennis people tell me how much money you've given to their cause, the inner-city kids. You come from Louisiana. Your dad is both black and Jewish?

CHANDA RUBIN: We have a Jewish last name, but we're not really Jewish in terms of... Yeah.

Q. Your dad is Jewish but...

CHANDA RUBIN: I don't know where the name so we've been trying to follow the family true. You know, I mean, in terms of being Jewish, I don't really have any reference for that. But they always encourage me just early on to give back, and certain causes that I really felt were worthwhile and at this point, it's just things that I feel personally that, you know, I just want to give some time to and it's not quite as much as maybe it used to be, but, you know, I definitely feel, you know, just a certain affiliation for certain people, just in terms of tennis and trying to give back, trying to encourage kids, introduce kids to tennis. I mean, I've gotten a lot from the game. I think it's just important to put it out there when you can. At the same time, I'm still trying to follow my career and really focus on that. Hopefully, that's an example as well. You know, I mean, you can do anything if you believe in it and that's just what I try to get across, regardless of what situation I'm helping or I'm going into.

Q. You had a great run here. Do you feel your game is where you need it to be?

CHANDA RUBIN: Well, I feel like I definitely have gotten a lot from this tournament, from this week and a half. You know, I've played some really good matches. I really built from the first round, and, you know, that's what I want to do. That's what I have to be able to do, especially going into a Grand Slam. This is not quite a two-week event, but it's pretty close. These are the type of matches I'll have to play and win to get over that hump and over that level to be in the semis, finals of Grand Slams. I feel like I got a lot from this week.

Q. In a situation like we had last night, where you're waiting and waiting, waiting and waiting, and you have to go and get yourself back up again, how do you deal with that emotionally? What do you do with your time?

CHANDA RUBIN: It's just part of the game. You've got rain delays that happen. You try to just remain focused until it's time to either pull the plug and come back the next day and, you know, you just try to prepare the same way, you know, get some rest and get back out at the courts, get a good warm-up and just start it all over again. There's nothing really scientific about it.
