In 2015, the Dubai Championships regained its Premier 5 status while the Qatar Open was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
  • 2 In 2014, the Pan Pacific Open was downgraded to a Premier event and replaced by the Wuhan Open.
  • 3 Tournament appearances include Grand Slam, WTA Tour main draw tournaments and the Summer Olympics. They do not include Fed Cup matches.
