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

Taylor Fritz is the first American boy to be named ITF Junior World Champion since Donald Young in 2005. The 18-year-old reached two Grand Slam junior singles finals in 2015, winning the US Open, and after taking over the No. 1 ranking in June he held on to the top spot for the rest of the season.

Taylor Fritz will receive his 2015 award at the ITF World Champions Dinner in Paris in June 2016.
