The ITA UTR Player of the Week honors a collegiate tennis player whose increase in UTR rating throughout the previous week was indicative of his/her high level of performance, including notable wins such as clinching matches and upsets.
The UTR ITA National Player awards were first given out in October 2019. Due to the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, the UTR ITA Player of the Month awards were not given out during the 2020 fall season. At the start of the 2021 dual match season, the UTR ITA Team of the Month award was added to the program.
UTR is the global gold standard for all tennis players, which reflects their current skill level based on actual performance and is used by college coaches for evaluating player ability, seeding, selection, and more.
