World Champions



The legendary Czech duo of Ivan Lendl and Hana Mandlikova received the opening ITF World Champion junior honours in 1978, paving the way for some of the game's all-time greatest players to use it as a spring board for success.

The boys' winners down the years include Pat Cash, Stefan Edberg, Roger Federer and Andy Roddick, while among the girls' champions are Gabriela Sabatini, Martina Hingis, Amelie Mauresmo and Victoria Azarenka.

After only presenting a singles award for the first few years, a doubles category was added in 1982. The format was changed again in 2004 when the two disciplines were combined, a system which is still used today.

Boys

Miomir Kecmanovic is the first Serbian player to be named ITF Junior World Champion following a triumphant end of season. The 17-year-old from Belgrade enjoyed an 18-match winning streak in winning the titles in Mexico City, the Eddie Herr tournament and Orange Bowl to seal the year-end No. 1 ranking. He won a total of four singles and two doubles titles, and was runner-up at the US Open.

Miomir Kecmanovic will receive his 2016 award at the ITF World Champions Dinner in Paris in June 2017.
