Ivanovo tennis player wins Yeltsin Prize

Yegor Shcherbakov, a young tennis player from the city of Ivanovo, won the Yeltsin Prize. The award ceremony will take place in Moscow on June 6. The award is given annually to young Russian athletes for high results and professional level of training.

Applicants for the scholarship can be three young tennis players in each age group of girls and boys, whose special sports success is confirmed by the place of the Russian player in the European Tennis Association (for girls and boys aged 14 and 15) and in the International Tennis Federation (for girls and boys aged 16 and 17 years).

Egor Shcherbakov was awarded the prize based on the results of his performance at tournaments of various levels last year.

Scholarships for the best young Russian tennis players – 12 girls and 12 boys – have been awarded annually for 18 years (since 2004). It is customary to call the awards Yeltsin’s, since the tradition was laid by the first president of Russia and the foundation named after him. After a while, the tradition was picked up by the Presidential Center B.N. Yeltsin.
