RANKING RULES SINCE 2021


WTA took the decision in 2021 to create a system that better alligns with the ATP system. Although most of the point structure was the same, tournament categories were renamed to reflect the equivalent at ATP level, and a more robust system was created to keep rules less confusing.



BASE RULES


COMMITMENT PLAYER RULES


AGE REQUIREMENT RULES


TIES

  1. Total points from all Grand Slams, WTA 1000 tournaments and WTA Finals, and if still tied, then,
  2. Total points from all WTA Level tournaments (included 125K level) and Grand Slams, and if still tied, then,
  3. The fewest events played (all penalties count as a played tournament), and if still tied, then
  4. The total number of points from the players' best tournament, then, if needed, the second best, and so on.
