viii. Merited Increases
(a) A player aged 15-17 is allowed up to four (4) merited
increases per birth year (i.e., birthday to birthday).
Merited increases are in addition to a player’s allotted
number of Tournaments under the AER.
(b) A merited increase is earned when a player aged 15-17
has completed all of her Player Development requirements
to-date and earned her way into the Main Draw or
Qualifying of a Premier Mandatory Tournament or Grand
Slam via a direct acceptance. Players may include up to
two (2) Grand Slam events in their total number of four (4)
(c) However, if a player is: i) accepted via a Wild Card; ii) 14
years of age; or iii) aged 15-17 and was accepted by
direct acceptance but has not completed her Player
Development requirements prior to competing in the
Premier Mandatory Tournament or Grand Slam event,
then participation in such event is counted towards her
total allotment of Tournaments under the AER
