View Full Version : When Do Retired Players Get Erased from Rankings?

Just curious if Maggie, Silvia etc. will continue to be in the WTA ranking until the end of this year or whether they will be taken off after they have played their last match. :confused:

They can be taken off the rankings on their own request (for example, Graf), or they just continue to sink lower and lower until they have less than 3 tournaments on their total.

as joanna said
the personal request demands a formal letter so it can take one more week sometimes till it gets there and the wta aprove it.
generally speaking - players just stop playing. the vast majority of the tour don't even get mentioned.
