This week we catch up with Tennis Channel's own Chanda Rubin and get her take on covering tennis in the new normal. While she has been in the US Open and Roland Garros bubbles, she will cover the upcoming Australian Open from the new Los Angeles studio.
Rubin brings a lot of personal experience to her current broadcasting gig after reaching as high as No. 6 in the world, winning the 1996 Australian Open doubles crown, and claiming seven career WTA titles. The Melbourne heat suited her just fine as she reached the 1996 singles semifinals in her best Grand Slam showing.
The 44-year-old checks in from her home where she's juggling two children, a (mostly) virtual broadcasting career, and her own YouTube show with Zina Garrison called "Game. Set.Chat!". She gives insight into how she launched her WTA and broadcast careers (Roger Federer was her very first on-court interview), and discusses the challenges facing players in 2021.
