RANKING RULES SINCE 2014


In July 2013, WTA players expressed their concern that a player who held multiple Grand Slam titles still was not number 1. As a response, the WTA system was changed in 2014 to award less points for players finishing a tournament without winning, while still preserving the points for the winner.
