Women's tennis returns to its normal ranking setup


The WTA is paving the way that it will eventually return women's tennis rankings to their normal 52-week system after having a "freeze" due to seizures and scheduling changes during the coronary epidemic.

This is a complicated way of calculating things, but in general, ranking points will not exceed a player's total for at least two years for a year.

The changes will begin April 5, after the Miami Open ends.

The rules govern such disparities as tournaments played in 2019, abandoned in 2020 and returned this year, including Miami and Madrid – those points will disappear 104 weeks after originally earned .

For events to be held in 2019, abandoned in 2020 and 2021 and expected to return in 2022 – Indian Wells fits into that scenario – whenever those competitions will be contested next, a player will play Will fall from the ranking.

Before these updates go into effect, the WTA has been allowing players to count points from their top 16 tournament results since March 2019. It has allowed anyone like No. 1 Ash Barty to avoid being penalized for sitting out the most by 2020 after COVID – the outbreak of 19 was halted.

For example, Barty did not defend his 2019 title at the French Open in October 2020, but is still credited for the previous year's championship.

ATP announced earlier this month that it was deferring its ranking rules with an eye to regularly restoring the 52-week system by August 2022.
