Table of Points for Challengers and Futures


ITF preliminary rulebook for 2019 has been published - it is only preliminary because they reserve the right to change the formatting - the rules won't change. It applies from 31st December 2018. The rulebook can be found at https://www.itftennis.com/media/298445/298445.pdf

The prize money distribution is on page 55 for the men, and 121 for the women.
Ranking points can be found on page 58 for the men's ATP (25k), and page 60 for the men's ITF (25k & 15k)

Ranking points for the women are on page 129 for the women's WTA ($100k - $25k) and page 132 for the women's ITF (15k).

The complicated women's entry sustem is also explained on page 116. Best of luck !

This has been said a couple of times in different places. I'm not as familiar with the men's game, but in what way is the women's entry system more complicated than the men's? As far as I'm aware at 15k and 25k level the entry system for men and women is the same. For Challenger/60K to 100K it remains the same as previous years for the women except for a reduced qualifying draw size while for the men it has been completely revamped with reserved places for ITF ranked players in both the main draw and qualifying.

I don't think the addict is necessarily implying the women's entry system is more complicated then the men's... but one look at the W25 entry list for Playford immediately tells one that the new system is messy and frankly unintelligible. Even as a WTA ranked player on the alt list it's hard to calculate your chances of getting in, and it's clear that some currently much lower ranked ITF players will get into tournaments ahead of higher ranked WTA players. Who knows whether the ranking system will sort itself out after a while, so there is some semblance of ranking order again in the future, but it certainly doesn't exist at the outset, and I would think that entry list system will have to be modified subsequently so that especially the players can understand it a little more clearly. It is not just Tara that is going to be confused as to understanding a) quite how their entry ranking as ended up like it is. and b) how to make their entry decisions.

In addition, those players left in limbo with WTA ranking points but not the three qualifying tournaments do indeed seem to have just been left on the outside looking in with no status anywhere.

Michael, you have explained it perfectly. There are five sections on the acceptance lists now, rather than three, and some players with WTA rankings appear on two alternate lists. It will probably become a lot clearer once we get into the new season, and more tournaments take place with the entries spread out.

My post initially was meant as a quick reference link to the relevant pages in the new rulebook.

So have I understood this right?

It is basically:

17 accepted on WTA

5 accepted on ITF

Qualifying list based on WTA - 8 places

Reserves for WTA quali list

Reserves for ITF acceptance list

(with - presumably - just two wildcards for the MD to make up the 32?)


Is that it?

Not quite. This is how the women's entries shape up: -

For the 25k's:
Max 17 for WTA, with 2 SE's and 1 JE available
Only 6 qualifiers into main draw
5 ITF reserved places in main draw
4 Wild cards

Only 24 in qualifying, including 4 wild cards at 25k level and above, and 5 at 15k level
24 maximum entries in qualifying at all ITF tournaments from 15k to 100k

Tx, the addict.

So is this it?

Draw of 32:

17 direct based on WTA / SE / JE

5 direct based on ITF

4 direct wildcards

6 qualifiers


24 quali draw based on WTA


reserve list for the quali draw (still based on WTA)

reserve list for the 5 ITF MD places (based on ITF)

That seems about it CD. I don't know why they've reduced the numbers of qualifiers to 24, that seems retrogressive and unnecessarily restrictive in terms of denying 8 players an opportunity per tournament.

At the moment what perhaps makes the entry lists so hard to read is having the list of ITF reserved alternates immediately after the list of WTA qualifiers, since one then has scroll down beyond what may be a lengthy list of ITF reserved alternates to get to the list of 'real' qualifying alternates. That list should follow on directly from the qualifiers list, and stick the ITF reserved alternates at the end.

The changes to qualifying draw size and match format are part of the plan to reduce tournaments to 7 days. Some tournaments will hold both qualifying rounds on Monday.

I agree with you that the ITF reserved list is in a not very helpful position.

Essentially 1, 3, 6, 12, 20 for 25Ks and 1, 2, 4, 6, 10 for 15Ks
