Rubin ready for the Challenge
Pumped Rubin Ready

Chanda Rubin hits a ball in practise. She is 8th seeded here at Wimbledon and believe she can win.

England---Ask Chanda Rubin anything and she'll tell you shes ready.

"I'm definetely ready for the challenge. There are so many top players here but I think I've got a chance." Rubin commented during an all-access press confrence.

Chanda Rubin has been practising hard for the past few days for 5 hours.

"I know it sounds like a lot, but when you're really into things and you really want to do well time just flies by I guess. I really want to do well and since Berlin I just haven't played very well at all. But here, I'm looking to change that because after all its a Grand Slam and if you want to win a Grand Slam you've got to bring your best tennis."

When asked if she was a top player she simply stated that she thought so in her mind but who doesn't.

"Well obviously everyone thinks they are a top player or a challenge to the field because they wouldn't be out here. But yes, definetely! I think I can cause a stir-up here."

Then the reporters suddenly turned on Rubin and started asking questions about her doubles partner Amelie Mauresmo who she wants to ditch for Wimbledon.

"I really don't want to talk about it. Amelie is just a bitch you see, she was so mean to me in the locker room when we lost a couple of weeks ago that I just felt that I needed to leave her and just cool it down. Amelie is an overall nice person but I don't think she likes to lose. But then again no one does.

Wimbledon will playing sometime next week and it looks to be a very high competitive one. Look for Rubin to cause some commotion.​
