Sevastova takes the honors for the “Qualifiers” group, and earns a $3,000 cheque for her efforts, which she will donate to Latvian food bank charity Paedusai Latvijai.

Sevastova, who became the first player to defeat Serena Williams in a Fed Cup singles rubber in February, is tied for the all-time lead in Fed Cup singles wins in Latvia’s history. She edged out Carla Suarez Navarro, Leylah Annie Fernandez and Aliaksandra Sasnovich for the award.

Mirza, who made her first Fed Cup appearance since 2016 in Dubai in March, takes the award for the “Asia/Oceana 1” Group. She went 3-0 in doubles and helped India book a spot in the Fed Cup Playoffs with her 18-month-old son Izhaan watching on.

22-year-old Fernanda Contreras Gomez guided Mexico to the playoffs as well. She edged Veronica Cepede Royg in the voting for Americas 1 Group.

Anett Kontaveit improved her current Fed Cup singles winning streak to seven, which included a three-set win over Elina Svitolina in Tallinn, Estonia.

Kontaveit's donation will go to Varjupaikade MTU, a charity running and working with animal shelters across Estonia.
