The dates for the "Christmas Cup" in 2021 were postponed to a later date due to the current epidemiological situation in the world and the restrictions on cross-border movement.

The Russian tennis player, wild card winner Victoria Milovanova became the strongest among the girls in Singles and became the first unseeded winner in the history of the tournament. Alina Korneeva & Hefziba Oluvadare (Russia/Great Britain, 7) took the Girls Doubles title!

All the matches, starting from December 30, 2019, were broadcast on the Academy website, YouTube channel and on portal.

The most titled athlete in the history of the "Christmas Cup" is the leading academician Anastasia Potapova, who twice (2014, 2015) won Doubles Titles. She shared success with Olesya Pervushina (2014) and Maria Novikova (2015).

The Russians - Alain Avidzba (2014), Timofey Skatov (2015), as well as Spanish player Martin Landaluсe (2020) - became the absolute winners of the "Christmas Cup". Mikhail Gorokhov (Russia) became a two-time winner of the "Christmas Cup" in Boys Singles (2017, 2018).
