This thread will collect the 2015 Race updates leg after leg and the qualifying process for the off-season Singapore Finals and Zhuhai Elite Trophy.
Let's see the detailed rules for each event.
2015 RACE TO SINGAPORE WTA FINALS!
The top 4 singles players and top 2 doubles pairs in the Year-End Rankings will qualify for the 2015 Singapore WTA Finals, whose format has changed two years ago. Detailed rules and results in this thread:
Following the WTA tour change, the Sofia ToC has been replaced in the calendar by the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai, which is reserved to the best players who don’t play in Singapore. So, the 4 singles players ranked #5-#8 and the 2 doubles pairs ranked #3-#4 in the Year-End Rankings will qualify for the 2015 edition, whose rules will be the same of the Singapore event.
RACE TO 2016 WORLDS!
As the number of players has gone down below the number of available spots, ALL the singles, doubles pairs and national teams coming back for the 2016 season will be able to play. The qualifying process for the 2016 World Championships has been cancelled.
