Throughout the month of February, Tennis Channel and will be celebrating Black History Month. Keep watching and reading to learn more about some of the most important African-Americans to have made their marks on the game.

Chanda Rubin's highest WTA ranking was No. 6, which she attained in 1996. Rubin won seven singles titles in her career, and also had plenty of success in doubles. She won the Australian Open alongside Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1996, and three years later reached the US Open doubles final.

But it can't be forgotten that Rubin was equally as impressive off the court. She won the Family Circle Player Who Makes a Difference Award in 2002, and the USTA Service Bowl Award in 2003. For everything she did throughout her career, on and off the court, Rubin was also inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.
