Institutional setting

The WTA Tour organization is headquartered in Stamford, southwestern Connecticut .
The tour also has an office in Europe with headquarters in London. The WTA is managed by a chairman and a board of directors, most of whom are active players, and some are business consultants. The Council advises the Women’s Tennis Professional Association as the core institution for the entire tennis sport. Like men’s tennis, the main responsibility of the WTA is to take responsibility for all players. The players have their own agents in the Women’s Tennis Association. The Women’s Professional Tennis Association decides all the rules of the tour and sponsors some exhibitions so that players can participate in some of these games without fear of conflict with the real professional league.
In 2008, the Asia Pacific Representative Office of the WTA Tour in Beijing was established, becoming the third branch of the tour outside the headquarters in St. Petersburg , Florida and the representative office in London, UK.

Development History

The women’s competition, like the men’s competition, has also gone through a road of competition for rights. The players want control of tennis, but they don’t have the ability to control the game – at least they can’t control important matches. After some negotiations, the WTA accepted the advice of the directors to let the professional tennis federations run the tournament.

Since players can earn computer credits by winning more than $25,000 in prizes in some competitions, it is easier to join a woman’s computer ranking than to join a man. Although players have to play at least 10 tournaments a year to maintain their ranking advantage, it is easier to participate in some small leagues.

The Women’s Tennis Tour has set up a school for young players whose educational goals are to introduce the knowledge of the tour and what to watch out for. So this is because some young players such as Jaeger, Capriati and Austin have encountered such problems. WTA believes that these young players are under too much pressure and they want to let players and their parents understand the potential dangers of professional tennis. Old players also believe that it is necessary for young players to understand the history of tennis. Young players, even if they lose in the first round of competition, can earn thousands of dollars. The stars of the past want to let young people know how they have today’s status. Jennifer Capriati, she experienced many difficult times, but she returned to the game and tried to make up for the lost time.

What’s important is that there are two organizations that care about the players, especially women’s tennis. Players can have almost no world recognition, reaching 14 years old.

Join the professional player ranking. Many players are exploited and deceived. For example, in the encounter of Steffi Graf, her father squandered her bonus. ATP and WTA want to teach these young players before they are confused by reputation and money. Some important leagues have parent seminars. If a family is made aware of the problems they will face, I think the discussion is still necessary.

Finally, the Players Association prohibits the addition of new leagues. Players can rest comfortably for a while without having to worry about their computer rankings. Because both ATP and WTA prohibit excellent players from participating in a one-night race, tennis has developed healthily. Both major tournaments have outstanding players representing the highest level. All players should bear in mind the pioneers of tennis that paved the way for their day. We want a 12-year-old juvenile master to know Kramer, Laffer, Connors, Axi and women in the gold, Casals, Navratilova and Evert, when they are seeds When they were players, they made great contributions to tennis.

Event classification

WTA Year-end Finals

The WTA Year-end Finals was born in 1972. It is a WTA (Women’s Professional Tennis Association) event that represents the top level of women’s tennis. At the beginning of the WTA Finals, the 16-player elimination system was adopted, but since 1977, it has been changed to a group of 8 people. After entering the 1990s, it was once again changed to the elimination system. Until 2003, the race across the European and American continents returned to a group round-robin system similar to the Masters Cup.
It is also worth mentioning that the final final of the 1984-1998 WTA Finals was a five-game three-win system, which is extremely rare in the history of women’s tennis. Until the 1999 finals, they returned to three sets and two wins. It can be seen that the WTA year-end finals, which have undergone numerous rules changes, have witnessed the development of modern women’s tennis. From 2012 to 2014, the WTA year-end finals will stay in Istanbul, and only the top eight players in the year will be eligible to compete for this grand event.
The 2013 WTA year-end finals ended the final championship battle. China’s Jinhua Li Na challenged the defending champion Serena Williams and failed to reversal in the first win. He eventually passed the championship trophy at 6-2\3-6\0-6.
This is the 11th confrontation between Li Na and Serena, but Li Na has only won one victory. This game is also Li Na swallowed a nine-game losing streak against the opponent. Although not a champion, the runner-up has already created the best record for Asian players in this event.

Ranking system

The WTA Champion Ranking refers to the total score of the women’s professional players who participated in all the competitions in the year. The champion ranking is the reference standard for the players to be included in the finals.
The WTA World Ranking is the sum of points earned by women’s professional players in the 16 best-performing events of the past 52 weeks. (The Grand Slam and mandatory participation in the first-level events must be counted in the “16 events”. If they are absent, they will be counted as “0”.)
The WTA uses a 52-week ranking system to calculate the highest score of 16 single-players in the past 52 weeks.
WTA singles points: For the world’s top ranked players (last year’s top 20), four Grand Slams (Australian, French Open, Wimbledon, US Open) + Four Crowns (Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid, Beijing) +2 Station Best Super 5 (P5) (Doha/Dubai, Rome, Duolun/Montreal [all in Canada, single year in Toronto, double-year in Montreal], Cincinnati, Tokyo [Starting Wuhan Alternatives in 2014] +6 station best tour results, in addition, the year-end finals (the players entering the year-end finals, the score will be mandatory, starting from 2016, the year-end finals to follow the ATP as the 17th item is additionally mandatory)
The purpose of the WTA is to safeguard the interests of women’s professional tennis players and to provide protection for the development and interests of women’s tennis careers.

Cooperative competition

During the Zhangzhou International Tennis Challenge, the president of WTA (International Women’s Professional Network) Asia Pacific region visited the venue and hoped to hold WTA related competitions here. Bao Lei , deputy director of the Yinzhou District Sports Bureau, said that the Zhangzhou Tennis Center also wants to hold such a high-level tennis match, but whether the WTA-related competition can be held in Zhangzhou depends on the China Tennis Management Center.

WTA will launch a $125,000 challenge around the world next year, and they took the initiative to choose us.”
Bao Lei said that the Zhangzhou Tennis Center wanted to run a high-level event such as WTA from the beginning, and even wanted to hold a prize of US$220,000 in the Guangzhou Open. There was no suitable opportunity, and this time it was a hit with the WTA.
