Ranking Point Changes Set For 2014

The calendar isn't the only WTA fixture being renovated for 2014, as there will be some ranking point amendments for the new season.

Among the changes confirmed by the WTA are first round points at Premier Mandatory tournaments being doubled (from five to 10), qualifying points at International tournaments being increased and Grand Slam qualifying points being adjusted to lessen the difference between WTA Premier event qualifying points.

New points will be added only as 2013 results drop off, so the changes will be gradual.

The WTA's intent with the changes is for a more uniform awarding of points from round to round and between tournament levels, while also striking an appropriate balance between WTA and ITF levels.

The WTA rankings are based on a 52-week, cumulative system, with a player's ranking determined by her results at a maximum of 16 singles events and 11 doubles events.
