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 2016 awards saw the highest ever total of six men (Robert Menendez Ferre, Alexander Windish, Manfred Huntsdorfer, Karl Pansy, Bruno Renoult and Peter Pokorny) and three women (Ana Salas-Lozano, Encarnacion Gomis Ruiz and Erzsebet Szentirmay) successfully defend their titles from 2015, with Austrian Pokorny claiming a Player of the Year title for an incredible fifteenth time.

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