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.
The 2017 awards saw the highest ever total of five men (Robert Menendez Ferre, Alexander Windish, Bruno Renoult, Herbert Althaus and Henri Cruchet) and two women (Encarnacion Gomis Ruiz and Elie Krocke) successfully defend their titles from 2016. Three of last year's Players of the Year (Pierre Godfroid, Ana Salas-Lozano and Liselot Prechtl) also won on their debuts in a new age category, leading to a total of 10 repeat winners.
Medals and certificates were handed over to representatives of the national tennis federations at Tennis Europe's Annual General Meeting in Budapest, Hungary, in March.
