European Senior Players of the Year

The European Seniors Player of the Year title is awarded to the top-ranked European player of each age category at the end of each season.

Many new faces feature amongst this year’s list of Tennis Europe Senior Players of the Year. Amongst them is Dimitri Poliakov, who becomes the first ever Ukrainian Player of the Year, and Iva Saric, just the third Croat to claim the title.

Two players completed a hat-trick of titles in their current age groups; Roberto Mendez Ferre (ESP) and Ellie Krocke (NED), while Bruno Renoult of France and Jorge Camiña Borda of Spain also retained their titles from 2017.

Camiña Borda also recently received a special Tennis Europe Award in recognition of his outstanding achievements on the Senior Tennis circuit.  

Medals and certificates were handed over to representatives of the winners’ national tennis federations at Tennis Europe's Annual General Meeting in Malta in March.
