Serie or Spielserie


Explanation:
NODE – The New Oxford Dictionary of English shows a "rubber" to be a series of "matches" of cricket or tennis.

This German site refers to a "Match" as a "Partie" and a "Serie" as 5 "Matches" = "Partien":

http://www.sport.de/spart/cri/welcome.php3

The "CricInfo" site refers to a "rubber" as a "series", this time of 6 "matches".

http://www-uk3.cricket.org/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/CRICKET_...

and here a "test" = "match" and 5 "tests" = a "rubber"

http://www-uk3.cricket.org/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/CRICKET_...

Here is a list of CricInfo articles with the same usage.

http://search.cricket.org/perl/cisearch.cgi?query=rubber&hos...

From all these reputable references, it appears that a "rubber" is a "Serie" or "Spielserie".
