Computerized from 1973, the WTA ranking is updated every Monday, except during Grand Slam tournaments since November 3, 1975. The WTA ranking, which follows the principles and rules decreed by the WTA, is cumulative over a period of 52 weeks. , that is to say determined by the quantity of tournaments played during the 52 weeks as well as the best results obtained over this period and set at sixteen tournaments to determine the WTA ranking of a singles player.

This ranking includes the points obtained during the four Grand Slam tournaments, the points won during the Premier Mandatory category tournaments, those of the two best results among the Premier 5 category tournaments for players in the top 20 and the points obtained at the Masters (tournament where the eight best players of the current season compete).
