2014 Wimbledon Junior Champion Noah Robin has announced his retirement from tennis at the age of 26. After winning the 2014 boys’ singles Wimbledon title and reaching number one in the US junior rankings, the US tennis community had hoped that Robben would have a hugely successful career path.

Unfortunately for Robin and American tennis fans, he did not meet expectations but did achieve some solid results. Robben has never won an ATP title or broke into the top 100, but he has earned four Challenger titles and seen his career rankings at number one.

125. At the main level, Robin was 8-21. Perhaps the highlight of Robben’s career was facing Roger Federer at the 2017 Australian Open, when he performed well before falling short against Federer 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (3).

Robin last played in late July, in Washington, where he was defeated in a first-round playoff match.

Robin’s retirement announcement

“End of class? Who knows,” Robin wrote in an Instagram post. “As many know, he has been slowly creeping up to this point.

As much as I fell in love with the sport, it was hard to accept how little professional tennis makes sense to me. Between being a nightmare to play, falling balls, and wanting to put on a show, this 5’9 New Yorker Jew was the same on the court.

But that was only half of it. Although the thought of traveling makes me feel a little nauseous at this point, it has changed my life. I’ve seen some great places, met some insanely interesting people, and I think I’ve been lucky enough to impress both while in transit.

On the one hand, I played 15,000 Australians against one of the tennis greats, and on the other, a match at 10pm in Poitiers, France where only my coach and a Frenchie could see me for €75. .

I couldn’t sleep after winning my first Challenger title (from qualifying and saving match point in the finals), to crying to sleep in Marbella, Spain, and I really think all I worked for was for nothing.

I felt it all.”

Robben also added that he would not close the doors to a potential return, but for now is likely to pursue other interests.
