Round Robin (RR) Events:


Qualifying for YEC:

Highest ranked players/teams determined by a ranking composed by the best 20 results that the players/teams have done throughout the year. Top 8 players and Top 8 teams shall qualify.
The format will be two groups (4 players in each group) for singles and two groups (4 teams in each group) for doubles

Qualifying for WET (WTA Elite Trophy):

12 players (from 9th to 20th place of the 2015 TT race) round robin singles format (four groups of three players, then single-elimination semifinals and final), and 6 double pairs from 9th to 15th place of 2015 TT Race (two groups of three pair, then single-elimination semifinals and final)
YEC ALTs who didnīt get in are obviously allowed to play this event as well


Qualifying for Challenger YEC:

Exact date of the Challenger YEC will be announced during the year, it will probably take place in the week after the WET and will feature the Top 8 challenger players and Top 8 teams of the year.
WTA 125 tournaments will count for the Challenger race as well.
Doubles players will qualify as individuals and not as teams. People who play in the YEC or WET are INELIGIBLE for this event.
They can play singles of one and doubles of the other, but not singles in both, etc.
The format will be two groups (4 players in each group) for singles and two groups (4 teams in each group) for doubles.

General Rules of the RR Events:

Qualifiers and ALTs will have to confirm their participation in the respective threads, Commitment deadline will be Sunday, 3pm local time before the event starts.
Tournament managers should inform players about their possible participation as soon as it is sure that they qualified for the event.

The situation with ALTs will remain the same. If you wish to be an ALT for YEC, WET or Challenger YEC then you canīt play in a challenger in the same week.
Maximal number of ALTs for the RR events is 4 (4 ALTs for Singles and 4 ALTs for Doubles)

Players or Teams (one player per team is enough) who fail to send picks during the RR rounds of the tournament will be permanently replaced by alternates.
Players or Teams who got replaced during the RR rounds still have the chance to qualify for the next stage if they scored more points than her RR opponents.
Players or Teams are allowed to stay in the draw when there are no ALTs available and still have a theoretical chance to win the match.

If somebody does not send for the semifinal then they will be replaced by the 3rd/2nd place finisher from their group.
If somebody does not send for the final then they will be replaced by the player/team they defeated in the semifinal.

If doubles partners are drawn to the same singles group then they have to play against each other in the first first round (RR1)

The TB rules remain the same as for the regular tournaments.

The winner and the runner-up of each group will be determined by the following tie-breaker:

Quote:
1) Greatest number of wins
2) Head-to-head results if only two (2) players are tied
3) If three (3) players are tied, then:
a) Number of correct picks.
b) If (a) produces one (1) superior player (first place), or one (1) inferior player (third place), and the two (2) remaining players are tied, the tie between those two (2) players shall be broken by head-to-head record.
c) Number of correct SRs.
d) Number of correct ISRs



Special Exempts (SEs 2015)


From 2015 on every International tournament will have space for 4 Special Exempts ( 2 for Singles and 2 for Doubles)
Challenger Race Standings from certain periods will determine the holders of the Spots

The SE spot goes over to the next person/team in the ranking if a SE spot isnīt needed by one player/team
All managers of International Tournaments should have space for 2 SEs for Singles and Doubles and owners of a SE have time until 2nd deadline to commit to a tournament
A SE spot will be cleared if it isnīt used once the 2nd deadline of a tournament is over


In case of a tie between players/teams the order will be determined by this:

1. The highest number of points from one single challenger tournament during the period, then if needed, the second highest and so on
2. Number of challengers played during the period
3. Challenger points earned during the year
4. Number of challengers played during the year
5. TT ranking (for Doubles combined ranking)
