In the rest of the tournaments (60K and up) you can only enter with WTA points (or a WC)
Or possibly with ITF ranking if all players with WTA ranking are directly accepted in? Not likely to happen anyway ofc.

Re: 2019 ITF World Tennis Tour Calendar

@Meelis : do you know how the entry lists for the first few weeks will be done ? Officially the new ranking only starts on 31/12/2018, but obviously lists are made 3 weeks in advance, so will they still use the old system, without any booked place for transition tour the 1st three weeks of January, or will players already be entered using the shadow rankings for all 2019 tournaments ?

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Shadow rankings will be used for acceptance into tournaments in the first 3 weeks of the 2019 season.

This is interesting. So even some late 2017 results would be converted for the shadow ranking purposes (Dubai, Pune, Navi Mumbai ITFs), which won't be convereted at the end of 2018.

I don't think i like it, this gives more value to random end of the year indian 25k events over 15k of the same week, palyed at the time no players would adjust their schedules to the current itf changes. I would prefer them doing it according to old system altogether, the loss of 15k points snubs some players that might have a unique chance to make cuts like Brito if she would have strong end of 2018. It would also give them chance to prove their old rank and a headstart to replace the points lost to ITF ranking (or 1-2 points for first round loss if they don't belong).

Re: 2019 ITF World Tennis Tour Calendar

When I am here, is my assumption that the requirements for having a WTA rank are staying the same (except ofc points from 15k are no good anymore) correct? So 10+ points results or points from 3 different events, correct?

Is there gonna be anything like that for ITF ranking, or earning a sole point in 15k would put you on the table?

Yes.

One point is enough based on the shadow rankings.

Re: 2019 ITF World Tennis Tour Calendar

Still don't really get it.

I like that the USTA is planning on doing 5 consecutive clay ITF tournaments in May, that's a nice swing for players to participate in.
